Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada - December 2014 And 2014 Year End

2014 Audi Q3
Canadian sales of compact luxury crossovers jumped 81% in 2014 thanks to the arrival of new competitors for the BMW X1. Those competitors, the Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, arrived in the second half and, as the year progressed, had a negative impact on the popularity of the BMW X1.

These are certainly not the most popular luxury utility vehicles, however. Move up a notch or two in terms of size and price and you'll find numerous vehicles which outsold the whole small trio. (Granted, two-thirds of the trio didn't have a full year.) The Acura RDX and MDX, Audi Q5, and Lexus RX all generated more than 6000 Canadian sales in 2014.

As for the RX, its 7913-unit total made it the country's top-selling premium brand SUV/crossover, just 51 sales ahead of the Audi Q5.

Among utility vehicles which come standard with a third row, the Ford Explorer is Canada's best seller. But the Explorer is by no means the top-selling Ford crossover, as both the small Escape and the slightly larger Edge are more popular here. 

South of the border, the Explorer is America's best-selling three-row vehicle, full stop. But Canadians are far more keen on minivans, thus stealing sales from three-row utilities like the Explorer, GMC Acadia, Dodge Durango, and Toyota Highlander. Minivans account for 3.4% of U.S. new vehicle sales; 5.1% in Canada.

The Ford Escape was Canada's best-selling small SUV/crossover in 2014 and the country's best-selling utility vehicle overall.

Although the Escape wasn't able to outsell all its rivals in the final one-sixth of the year - the Honda CR-V was the top dog in November and December - the Escape's year-end total was 14,514 units superior to the CR-V's. 

Think of it this way, for every CR-V sold in Canada in 2014, Ford Canada sold 1.4 Escapes.

Despite the Escape's continued position at the top of the leaderboard, the small SUV arena is a competitive one.
