Small SUV Sales In Canada - December 2016 & 2016 Year End

2016 Toyota RAV4 blue
In a market where SUVs and crossovers outsold every other vehicular category, compact crossovers were the most dominant of all sub-segments.

Led by the Toyota RAV4 for the first time ever, the Canadian SUV/crossover market depended on compact and subcompact utility vehicles for 55% of its volume in 2016.

Compact utilities jumped 7%, growing slightly slower than overall SUV/CUV sales in large part because of sharp declines from a domestic trio – Equinox, Journey, Escape.

Subcompact crossovers, boosted by growth from nearly every nameplate on offer, jumped by a fifth to 62,115 units. 

The Honda HR-V is Canada's most popular subcompact crossover,  outselling the next-best-selling Subaru Crosstrek by more than 2600 units. 

GM's Chevrolet Trax and Buick Encore twins combined to outsell the Honda by 2234 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.
