Our Take On The Top 20 Best Selling SUV Sales Numbers

Yet again the Honda CR-V missed out on the crown for Canada’s favourite SUV in 2017. It was pipped at the post by the Toyota RAV4 for the second year running, with just 451 units between the pair.

CR-V has started 2018 strong though, with over 1000 sales separating it from the RAV4 in January. Last month was the CR-V’s best January on record by some margin. Perhaps 2018 could be its year?

Traditional favourite in the Canadian market, the Ford Escape, begins 2018 in third place, with the Jeep Wrangler’s 200% year-on-year growth granting it a spot on the podium for January.

Canada’s best selling luxury SUV makes an appearance in the top-20 for January – the Audi Q5 sneaks on at the foot of the chart after its sales grew over 72% on last January.

Among other names posting sharp increases from last year are the Subaru Crosstrek (13th after a 162% y-o-y increase) and the Volkswagen Tiguan (making the top-10 with sales almost doubling on last January’s performance).
