After rising 15 percent in 2014, a record year for the Canadian auto industry, growth in the SUV/crossover category has levelled off in early 2015.

This is in large part due to losses from Canada’s top-selling Ford Escape which is down 9.7 percent to 4,829 sold through February.

The Utility vehicle segment as a whole still increased one percent through January and February though the overall auto industry saw bigger gains and jumped three percent.

Rounding out the Top 5 top-selling SUVs and crossovers behind the Escape so far in 2015 are the Toyota rav4, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, Hyundai Santa Fe.
