The 10 Best-Selling SUVs in 2018 in Canada

We take a look at the 10 best-selling SUVs in 2018 in Canada as of December 1st with the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V set to battle it out until the very end for the top spot.

We’ve known for a while now that buyers are moving away from passengers cars and heading towards SUVs. The trend was quite apparent in 2018 with passengers cars showing a 9.6% drop in sales.

The light trucks category which includes sport utility vehicles, on the other hand, saw sales increase by 1.1% in what ended up being a sluggish year for sales overall.

As stated previously, the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V are separated by less than 200 units at the top and could switch positions depending on what happens in December. Let’s take a closer a look at the 10 best-selling SUVs so far in 2018. The percentage represents the increase or decrease in sales compared with the previous year.

Toyota RAV4 – 51,350 units sold (+6.13%)

The Jeep Wrangler is certainly the star of this list with sales jumping by 42%. Not on the list is the Volkswagen Tiguan which finished in 11th position with sales increasing by 42.97%. With less than 1,000 sales separating it from the Equinox, the Tiguan could creep into the top 10 best-selling SUVs list by year’s end.

Other notable SUVs not on this list are the Tesla Model X and Nissan Qashqai. Obviously these are two very different SUVs but they can both say they saw their sales double in 2018.

Check back tomorrow when we take a look at the best-selling vehicles in Canada overall in 2018 in Canada.
