Our Take On The Small SUV Sales Numbers

Sales of SUVs in Canada were flat year-on-year, though on a daily selling rate basis overall they did rise what with this September including fewer selling days than last.

With more and more manufacturers getting in on the SUV act, some of the top-sellers in the small SUV market appeared to lose out in September.

The Nissan Qashqai and Hyundai Kona shot straight to the top of the tall hatch and crossover SUV sales chart after both outsold the Subaru Crosstrek for the month.

That’s as sales of big-volume small SUVs including the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Nissan Rogue saw sales drop – in the Ford’s case by as much as 26.7% year-on-year.
