Midsize SUV Sales In Canada – April 2017


2017 Toyota Highlander

Canadian sales of midsize SUVs/crossovers fell 10% in April 2017 as the overall auto 
industry declined and overall SUV/crossover sales ticked up only slightly.

Despite gains from top sellers such as the Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander, Canada’s two best-selling three-ow vehicles, much of the growth in the industry’s SUV/crossover sector last month didn’t stem from these larger two and three-row utility vehicles but rather the core compacts: CR-V, Rogue, RAV4, Escape, Tucson.

Nevertheless, year-to-date, Ford Explorer sales are up by a third. Ford is on pace for its best Canadian year of Explorer sales in more than a decade. Toyota Highlander sales have never been stronger.

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 Wrangler and Xterra listed with small SUVs, too, and the Subaru Outback shown with mainstream cars… 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.
