Collectively, because of declines from the Chevrolet Equinox, Dodge Journey, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Jeep Compass, and Subaru Forester, this group of vehicles didn't expand at the same rate as the overall SUV/CUV sector. Yet this is the segment which powers so much of the Canadian auto industry.

Ford is rare among automakers in Canada in that the brand offers both a small two-row SUV/CUV, a three-row crossover, and a middle-rung two-row utility vehicle to fill in the gap. Between the Nissan Rogue and Pathfinder, you'll find the Murano, also new this year. Hyundai positions the Santa Fe Sport between the Tucson and Santa Fe XL.
