Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada – August 2017


No surprise for the Toyota RAV4 to take the top spot in our Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs in Canada for August. The RAV4 has outsold the 2nd-placed Honda CR-V every month since March in the Canadian market, and this month sees it outdo the Honda by nearly 300 registrations, as well as posting 6.7% year-on-year growth.
The Mazda CX-5 sits pretty in 6th position, after August was its best month of the year. It slots in just behind the Hyundai Tucson, which has seen sales rise by over 67% on last August’s 1,645 registrations.
For the most impressive growth in the Top 20 SUVs, it’s the Volkswagen Tiguan we need to look to. Year-on-year, registrations of the Tiguan have shot up 154.7%, as the second generation Tiguan has proven immensely popular. August was its best month ever, with sales topping 2,000 for a single month for the first time for the VW in Canada.
