Nissan’s 2014 Rogue Will Be Available

Even with a 10% decline in Canadian sales, the Ford Escape was still Canada’s top-selling small crossover in August 2013, and Canada’s favourite utility vehicle overall. The Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Dodge Journey were between 1266 and 1610 units back of the Escape.
The Santa Fe’s 49% year-over-year increase, while impressive, was bettered by the Mazda CX-5’s 130% jump, the Mitsubishi Outlander’s 77% jump, the Subaru Forester’s 59% increase, and the Nissan Rogue’s 55% gain, as well.
Oh, and the Volkswagen Tiguan was Canada’s 18th-best-selling SUV/crossover for the second consecutive month thanks to a 55% YOY improvement. The Tiguan ranked 20th in June. One year ago, the Tiguan was Canada’s 21st-best-selling utility vehicle.
Ford Canada sells more than six Escapes for every Tiguan sold by Volkswagen Canada. The Tiguan is playing a larger role in attracting more customers to Volkswagen showrooms, however. A year ago, the Tiguan accounted for 10.1% of VW Canada’s sales during the first eight months in 2012. This year, with the Tiguan’s 20% increase, it now makes up 11.3% of VW Canada’s volume.

That’s not to say the Escape isn’t a key to Ford’s success. 15.3% of the brand’s Canadian volume is Escape-derived, and 26.7% of the Ford brand’s non-F-Series sales are generated by the Escape.
