1059 GM Lambda crossovers were sold in Canada in April 2013, just enough to pip the Ford Explorer and Jeep Grand Cherokee last month. Sales of the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and the Jeep all increased on a year-over-year basis. Explorer sales dipped slightly in April but are up 8% through the first four months of 2013.
A bit less costly than those five Detroit utilities, the Hyundai Santa Fe is surging in popularity this year. Compared with similarly pricey (and not dissimilarly-sized) small crossovers like the Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4, the Santa Fe isn’t a top seller. But viewed in the light of bigger and/or more expensive utilities like the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, the Santa Fe is wildly common in Canada.
Moreover, add to the Santa Fe’s 2432-unit April total another 204 sales via the Hyundai Santa Fe XL, which is only just getting started? Indeed, though only getting started, the XL still sold about as often in April as Mazda’s much-improved CX-9.
