Our Take On The Numbers

Canadian SUV sales increased 7.37% in August compared with the same month a year ago, and year-to-date sales of the below vehicles have increased almost 9%.

Nissan Qashqai sales increased significantly yet again, as the brand’s larger Rogue SUV sold 8% fewer than last August. With both months being identical in length in terms of selling days, the Rogue’s DSR fell compared with last year.

At the top of the chart the Toyota RAV4 outsold the Honda CR-V by over 100 units, though the CR-V still has the edge year-to-date. In the first eight months of the year, CR-V sold over 37,000 units for a 16.5% increase. RAV4 sales are up on this point last year, too, though by just 3.9% by comparison.

Despite August being its lowest-selling month since April, the Hyundai Kona remained in the top-20 selling SUVs in Canada, coming 16th in terms of sales volume for the month.
