As stated in this article, Canadians have a preference for smaller vehicles. That is why Nissan brought over their X-Trail SUV for two years as a sort of stop-gap measure until the Rogue came out. They needed something to compete with the hot selling CRVs, RAV4s, Escpaes, etc. The X-Trail featured a 2.5L 165HP Inline-4 and had available FWD or AWD. The SUV was sold in Canada from 2005-2006.
