Fortunately, automotive dealers have higher-profit SUVs and crossovers to sell. The category now accounts for 40.2% of all Canadian new vehicle sales, compared with 31.5% for cars. And of the 249,000 utility vehicles sold in Canada so far this year, more than a quarter of have been top sellers: Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape, and Hyundai Tucson.
Those five vehicles combined for nearly 67,000 sales in the first one-third of 2017, up from 57,000 a year ago. That gain of roughly 10,000 sales in only four months accounts for two-thirds of the growth in the category.
Four of the five are on track for their best years ever.
Reminder: these are 2017 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by April 2017 volume by clicking the April 2017 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns.
Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV/Crossover column header. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.
As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page. Mobile users can now thumb across the table for full-width access.
