Canadian sales of compact SUVs and crossovers jumped 15% in MArch 2017 and in the first-quarter of 2017, bolstered by huge improvements from the top-selling Nissan Rogue, surging Honda CR-V volume, and continued success from 2016’s top-selling SUV, the Toyota RAV4.
Subcompact crossovers, meanwhile, reported 12% year-over-year growth in March. 2017 Q1 sales are up 10%, a gain of 1184 sales.
Rogue volume, on its own, has grown by 3366 units through the first three months of 2017.

The Rogue’s huge improvements, helped by Nissan’s willingness to stock daily rental companies and have dealers pre-register vehicles in order for stores to receive monthly bonuses, are not unique in the industry.
As GM dealers begin receiving new the new Chevrolet Equinox, a clear-out of existing copies of the second-gen Equinox produced a 62% March improvement. A 58% GMC Terrain bump is similarly explained. Dodge Journey volume jumped 40% in March. The Hyundai Tucson, still a hot seller, was up 45% to 2589 units last month.
