Small SUV Sales In Canada – November 2016 YTD


Not surprisingly, given the Canadian auto industry’s resurgence in November 2016 after four consecutive months of decline, growth from small crossovers played an important role in the industry’s elevation.

Canada SUV/Crossover Sales By Model – November 2016 YTD

Led by the Ford Escape in November – and the Toyota RAV4 year-to-date – compact CUVs jumped 11% last month. Losses from the Dodge Journey, two departing Jeeps (one of which, the Compass, is transitioning into a new generation), the Mitsubishi Outlander, and the aforementioned Toyota RAV4 slowed the category along with a 3% Honda CR-V drop. 

But big improvements from a Chevrolet Equinox/GMC Terrain clear-out through to the Ford Escape, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue, Subaru Forester, and Volkswagen Tiguan pushed the category forward. Far forward.

Subcompact crossovers, meanwhile, grew 13% in November after falling with the industry in four consecutive months.

The Honda HR-V is Canada’s top-selling subcompact utility vehicle. Sales of the Mexican-built HR-V jumped 54% to 1550 units in November, a 13-month high. Year-to-date, the Buick Encore/Chevrolet Trax twins have outsold the HR-V by 2711 units.

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.
