Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada - November 2014 YTD

The Audi Q5 is no longer Canada's best-selling luxury SUV. Both in November 2014 and through the first eleven months of 2014, the Q5 has been outsold. 

The Lexus RX now leads on year-to-date terms with 7343 units, 85 more than the Q5. The RX, Mercedes-Benz GLK, Acura RDX, and Acura MDX all outsold the Q5 in November 2014.

But while Q5 sales slowed in November, Audi Canada more than made up for the deficit by reporting another month of improved Q3 sales. 

The smallest Audi crossover generated 366 sales last month, taking Audi's Q5/Q3 total up to 881 units in November 2014 from 687 in November 2013, a 28% year-over-year improvement. 

Meanwhile, BMW's selling more X1s even with the arrival of increased competition from the Q3 and Mercedes-Benz's GLA. X1 sales jumped 43% in November. 

BMW's bigger X3 is down year-to-date but jumped 30% to 461 November sales. The Mercedes-Benz GLK climbed beyond 600 units for the third time this year.

2015 Honda CR-V
The Honda CR-V was a class leader, overall best-selling utility vehicle, and best-selling Honda in Canada in November 2014. CR-V sales jumped 56%, year-over-year, to a Ford Escape-besting 4461 units.

Not since December of last year had the CR-V led Canada's SUV/crossover market. (It's the traditional favourite in the United States.) Through the first eleven months of 2014, the CR-V trails the second-ranked Toyota RAV4 by 934 units; the top-ranked Escape by 15,803. 

This category is more competitive in Canada than it is in the U.S., however, despite what the Escape may cause to appear otherwise. It also accounts for a larger percentage of Canadian sales than U.S. sales: 19% in Canada; 15% in the United States. 

Midsize SUV Sales In Canada - November 2014 YTD

Mazda Canada, traditional purveyor of low-volume three-row vehicles like the MPV and now the CX-9, sold 320 copies of the latter vehicle in November 2014. This was the best November ever for the CX-9. 2014 is set to go down as the CX-9's best year since 2008, if not 2007.

320 sales would be a low total for a vehicle like the Ford Explorer, but for the CX-9, it was a momentous month. Hyundai's Santa Fe XL, widely regarded to be a class leader in the three-row crossover segment, only generated 256 November sales. 

Indeed, though Santa Fe XL sales are up 54% this year - it wasn't on sale in January and February last year – November was the nameplate's third-lowest full month since it arrived in March 2013.
