The decreases reported by a quartet of subcompact crossovers – CX-3, Countryman, RVR, Juke – resulted in only 200 lost sales, a drop more than made up for by big increases from GM’s subcompact duo, FCA’s subcompact duo, the class-leading Honda HR-V, and the Subaru Crosstrek. 

Canadian SUV/crossover volume grew 16% in June. The SUVs/crossovers listed in this post accounted for 58% of the 76,000 utility vehicles sold last month.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you’ll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small cars, too, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with midsizers, as well… because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
