The Santa Fe XL is by no means the only surging three-row family crossover. Dodge Durango sales are up 66% this year – August was the Durango’s fifth month this year above 500 units. At the current rate, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will report more than 6000 Dodge Durango sales in 2016 for the first time since 2004.
Not unpredictably, Canadian sales of the new Mazda CX-9 are on the rise in concert with the launch of the finally-here second-generation model.

CX-9 sales are twice as strong this year as last, and the biggest Mazda is on track for its best year of Canadian sales ever. Already, with four months remaining on the calendar, 2016 is the third-best year of sales since the CX-9 arrived in 2007.
Meanwhile, the segment-leading Ford Escape is down 2%, but longtime prominent players from Toyota and Honda, the Highlander and Pilot, are on the rise. The Highlander, refreshed for 2017, trails the Explorer by 738 sales with one-third of 2016 remaining.
