Canada’s four best-selling utility vehicles all set sales records in calendar year 2014, crushing in some cases the records they’d set just one year ago. The fifth-ranked Hyundai Santa Fe Sport? It came within a scant 302 units of breaking the Canadian sales record it set in 2010.
The best-selling SUV in Canada, Ford’s Escape, set a sales record in 2013 but ended 2014 with an additional 7057 sales. The Honda CR-V ended the year on a high note, outselling all other Hondas – including the oh-so-Canadian Civic – in both November and December.
Not that the CR-V and RAV4 aren’t Canadian vehicles themselves. Sold by Japanese companies, the Honda and Toyota are built in Alliston, Ontario, and Woodstock, Ontario, respectively.
