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.

The Honda CR-V narrowly outsold the Escape thanks to a 16% increase in CR-V volume and a 7% decrease reported by the Ford.

The Ford's sales are down 8.5% year-to-date, but it still ranks atop Canada's SUV/CUV leaderboard through the first-quarter of 2015. The Toyota RAV4 is a scant 146 sales back of the Ford.

But Escape sales tumbled 14% in a growing category, not unlike sales of the Chevrolet Equinox, Kia Sportage, Mitsubishi Outlander, and Subaru Forester. 

For the Equinox, it was just the second time in two years (and the second consecutive month) that Canadian volume fell below 1100 units. 

It was the Escape's worst month since January 2012. February marked the third occasion in four months that Outlander volume fell below 400 units.
