The Honda CR-V narrowly outsold the Escape thanks to a 16% increase in CR-V volume and a 7% decrease reported by the Ford.
The Ford’s sales are down 8.5% year-to-date, but it still ranks atop Canada’s SUV/CUV leaderboard through the first-quarter of 2015. The Toyota RAV4 is a scant 146 sales back of the Ford.

SUV/crossover growth has certainly slowed in early 2015, but many of these vehicles are key contributors in the industry’s march toward a third consecutive year of record sales. Through three months, auto sales in Canada have improved compared with 2014’s record-setting pace.
As the true car, truck, and utility vehicle buying season heats up in spring and early summer, we’ll see if vehicles like the CR-V, RAV4, Rogue, and Cherokee can overcome the losses posted by the Equinox, Journey, Escape, Terrain, Santa Fe Sport, Sportage, Outlander, and Forester.
