Surprisingly, the midsize SUV segment in Canada didn’t look so great in the month of September. The segment has had a strong year so far, so the decline in sales was uncommon.
In the month of September, the segment was down about 1,000 units. When you look YTD, the segment is actually up by about 13,000 units.
Leading the pack in terms of overall sales volume was the Jeep Wrangler. The vehicle saw a dramatic rise of nearly 29 percent for the month of September. However, it saw a 10 percent drop when you look YTD.
We’d expect the segment to see sales increases again in the coming months. It has been a good year for SUV sales, and we’d expect that to continue.
