The Escape was Canada’s eighth-best-selling vehicle at this time one year ago; it ranks fifth now. Only one passenger car, the Honda Civic, sells more often. Among Canada’s 20 best-selling vehicles, no nameplate is growing faster than the Escape. Sales of the Escape are up 21% this year and jumped 26% in September, specifically.
New to these rankings this month are the Acura TLX and Mercedes-Benz’s GLA-Class crossover, which only barely crosses over from the car to utility vehicle category.
The GLA is only a few inches taller than the Mercedes-Benz CLA; nearly 11 inches shorter than the Mercedes-Benz ML. We hope to be able to provide TLX sales data into the future, but up until now the public report from Honda Canada has thrown the TLX in with the TL’s total.
Reminder: these are 2014 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by September volume by clicking the September 2014 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header. There are now visible brand results, so when you sort the table by vehicle names to showcase, for example, all Acuras together, you’ll also see the Acura brand’s total. Manufacturers are shown in bold to differentiate makes and models. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.

Total Maserati volume is reported, but not by specific models. It is believed that Tesla sold 25 copies of their Model S back in August 2014 (and 467 YTD), but Tesla doesn’t issue monthly sales reports. The estimate for Tesla August sales in Canada was 50 units.
