June 2016 YTD Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 98 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – Every SUV Ranked


2016 Dodge Journey Granite Crystal Metallic
SUVs and crossovers produced 39% of the Canadian auto industry’s new vehicle sales volume in the first-half of 2016, a figure which climbed all the way to 40% during the month of June. 
Thanks to huge year-over-year improvements from the Nissan Rogue, Jeep Cherokee, Hyundai Tucson, and the segment-leading Toyota RAV4, June SUV/crossover volume jumped by more than 10,000 units.

The Tucson’s improvement was most noteworthy. With one huge monthly performance, the Tucson suddenly became Hyundai Canada’s top-selling utility vehicle, overtaking the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport thanks to a 314%, 3068-unit year-over-year increase in June. At this stage of 2015, the Tucson was Canada’s 13th-best-selling utility vehicle – the Tucson ranks sixth in 2016.

Only six of the 35 best-selling utility vehicles in Canada are selling less often this year than last. More than eight years into its run, the Dodge Journey’s 33% drop is the worst of any SUV/crossover in the top 75.

Among premium candidates, the losses reported by the Acura MDX, Mercedes-Benz GLC, and Cadillac SRX stand out in a sector which is growing at a rapid rate. The SRX’s decline needs to be put in context, of course. Combined sales of the SRX and its XT5 successor are down by only three units, year-to-date. 

Meanwhile, sales of the MDX should improve as the Ohio-assembled 2017 model becomes available – constrained supply is an issue at Honda’s Alabama plant where the Honda Pilot, Honda Odyssey, Honda Ridgeline, and Acura MDX are all built.

We also expect to see a cloer battle between the top-ranked Toyota RAV4 and the second-ranked Ford Escape as the thoroughly revamped 2017 Escape becomes more common on dealer lots. But is it too late for the Escape, a long-time best-selling SUV in Canada, to capture the crown once again in 2016? The RAV4’s lead at the halfway point is a significant 3911 units.

Reminder: these are 2016 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by June 2016 volume by clicking the June 2016 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns.
