Midsize SUV sales in Canada looked good both in the month of December and the year as a whole. The segment was expected to do better this year than last year and it certainly delivered.
When you look at the month of December alone, you’ll see that the segment was up by about 1,200 units. The segment is up by about 15,800 units when you look at the year as a whole.
The Jeep Wrangler led the way in terms of sales. The model, however, was down for the year when compared to last year. It was up for the month of December, though. The Wrangler was followed by the Ford Edge and then the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Ford Edge saw a big jump in sales in December and a healthy bump in sales for the year. The Hyundai was down considerably for both.
We expect the segment to do strong sales in 2020. The midsize SUV segment has been trending up for years now with no end in sight. We’d be surprised if it began to struggle.
