This Is The 2015 Version Of Canada’s
55th-Best-Selling SUV, The Chevrolet Tahoe
29.6% of the Canadian automobile industry’s year-to-date volume through the end of August 2013 has been generated by SUVs and crossovers. That’s up from from 28.7% at this time last year.
29.9% of the vehicles sold in Canada in August 2013 were SUVs and crossovers, up from 28.3% in August 2012 and 29.5% in July 2012.
Naturally, those figures are subject to change depending on what you call an SUV and what you label as a car. Undoubtedly, the Mazda MX-5 Miata is a car and the Jeep Wrangler is an SUV. That which lies between those two is debatable.
By the definitions you see here, the Ford Escape is easily Canada’s best-selling utility vehicle. The second-ranked Honda CR-V is 6874 sales back of the small Ford. A year ago, at the end of August 2012, the top-ranked Escape was 5146 sales up on the second-ranked CR-V. Three of Canada’s 16 best-selling utility vehicles are Fords.
Three of Canada’s top 21 are General Motors products. Dodge and Jeep combined to land four utilities in the top 18. Four of the top 25 are Hyundais or Kias. Toyota (including Lexus) owns the third, 20th, and 21st positions.

These are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort SUVs and crossovers by August volume by clicking the August 2013 column header, or you can rank SUVs by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV column header. Just remember, the list is horizontally flipped from the norm: YTD on the left, monthly data on the right.
As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
