Canadian sales of subcompact crossovers more than doubled in April 2016 to nearly 7000 units, or nearly 700 sales per contender. New vehicles – the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and Fiat 500X weren’t available at this point in 2015 – contributed more than one-third of the sector’s sales.
Indeed, the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3 are consistently Canada’s two top-selling subcompact crossovers. 12,125 HR-Vs have been sold in Canada since last June; 9932 CX-3s have been sold in Canada since last May.
Keep in mind, the Buick Encore and Chevrolet Trax twins easily outsell the top-ranked HR-V.

Meanwhile, though Toyota is absent from the subcompact craze until the C-HR arrives, the top-selling small SUV/crossover in Canada is the Canadian-built Toyota RAV4.
Sales of the RAV4 jumped 19% to 4985 units in April 2016, an all-time monthly sales record for Toyota Canada’s best-selling vehicle.
