TOP 5 BEST-SELLING LUXURY SUVs & THE OVERALL BEST-SELLING SUVs IN CANADA

We’re quickly approaching November (November!) and while the Numbers you’ll read below will not be invalidated or forgotten, they will be added to. Changed, if you will.

Of late, GoodCarBadCar.net has been covering the story of luxury vehicle sales in the United States and overall vehicle sales in Canada at least so far as the first three quarters of 2009 – January 1st through September 30th. For example, this involves the Sales Stats of all minivans available for sale in Canada or an in-depth look at the Sales Stats of every single luxury SUV in America. As for SUVs, it’s time for a look at the favoured sport-utes north of the 49th.
This comes only weeks after The Good Car Guy profiled the Honda CR-V; its status as the best-selling SUV in the United States; and why hundreds of thousands of American consumers will buy one in the 2010 model year, too. Curiously, Canadians don’t take to the CR-V with the same fervour. In fact, more CR-Vs were sold in the U.S. in September alone than have been sold in Canada in the first nine months of 2009. Meanwhile, the third-best-selling SUV in America is by far and away the best-selling SUV in Canada. No other sport-ute even comes close. And the way the best-selling luxury SUV in America sneaks into the Top 5 overall SUV sales? That’s not gonna happen in Canada.
Read on to discover the Top 5 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada and the Top 5 Best-Selling Luxury SUVs in Canada. Enjoy the fact that none of these vehicles are actually….. ya know, true sport-utility vehicles. And argue over GoodCarBadCar.net’s inclusion of the Buick Enclave – it’s priced at $43,505, after all. Don’t like it? The sixth-place candidate is the Acura RDX at 2,195 sales through the first nine months of ’09.
