The Honda CR-V was Canada’s best-selling utility vehicle in October 2016. The CR-V’s 21% surge occurred during the same month in which Honda quietly debuted an all-new CR-V, pictured above, for the 2017 model year. The Toyota RAV4, Canada’s leading utility so far this year, finished the month 217 sales behind the CR-V but 4128 sales ahead on year-to-date terms.
After a fire at Ford MoCo’s HQ delayed Ford’s report, we now know the Escape was Canada’s third-ranked utility vehicle in October. The Edge and Explorer ranked 10th and 11th.
Though a trio of premium brand products made their way onto the list of Canada’s 20 best-selling cars in October, premium brands were held off of this SUV/crossover list.
The biggest gain was reported by the 17th-ranked Kia Sportage.
The sharpest decline belnged to the Honda HR-V, sales of which fell 39%, year-over-year. The HR-V maintained its position as Canada’s top-selling subcompact crossover, nevertheless.
