The Ford Escape is still Canada’s best-selling SUV/crossover, but Escape volume tumbled 8.5% over the last three months despite a continuation of increased interest in that very type of vehicle. 

At this stage of 2014, the Escape was 2373 sales ahead of the second-ranked Honda CR-V. This year, the Escape is only 146 sales ahead of the second-ranked Toyota RAV4.

º Land Cruiser is a commercial vehicle in Canada. Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it’s with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type’s name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can’t be squeezed through a round hole.
