September 2016 YTD Canada SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 101 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – Every SUV Ranked


Canadians bought and leased 70,000 SUVs and crossovers in September 2016, a month in which passenger car sales slid 7% to 57,946 units.

Led by the Ford Escape (in September) and the Toyota RAV4 (so far this year), SUV/crossover volume equals 39.2% of the overall Canadian new vehicle market. In September 2016, that figure climbed to 40.1%.

The strength of the SUV/crossover market, combined with healthy pickup truck volume, has still not been enough over the last three months to completely counter the drop in passenger car sales. In July, August, and September, Canadian new vehicle sales were lower than during the same period one year earlier.

But automakers and their dealers are happy to sell SUVs/crossovers in the place of passenger cars. Higher transaction prices and lower incentives are trademarks of the current utility vehicle market.

This isn’t stopping automakers from releasing new passenger cars. September, for example, was the first month of availability for the new Lincoln Continental. Hyundai is launching their new Genesis luxury brand with two sedans. The Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan arrived in the U.S. in September. 

But automakers are keen to bring more and more utility vehicles to market. This summer saw the launch of the Maserati Levante and Bentley Bentayga at the high end of the luxury market; the Infiniti QX30 at the entry point to premium content. Alfa Romeo will show the production version of its Stelvia SUV at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
