2016 Best Selling SUVs In Canada (All Models Ranked)
SUVs and crossovers accounted for precisely 40% of all new vehicles sold in Canada in 2016. As the Canadian auto industry reported record new vehicle sales for a fourth consecutive year, much of the credit belongs to this category. Led by the Toyota RAV4, SUVs/crossovers added 71,000 sales in 2016, year-over-year, for an industry that grew by 50,000 sales. The RAV4 alone was up by 6857 units, a 16% gain that far outpaced the segment’s 10% growth rate. 2016 was the RAV4’s first ever annual sales victory in the SUV/crossover sector in Canada. Helped along by the second-ranked Ford Escape’s 2% drop, the RAV4 outsold the usual Ford leader by roughly 204 units per month.
Together, the RAV4, Escape, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, and Jeep Cherokee – the five top utility vehicle nameplates in 2016 – earned more than one-quarter of all SUV/crossover sales. They lead a group of the 20 most popular utility vehicles in which only six sold less often in 2016 than in 2015.
