Major changes to this monthly U.S. small SUV sales publication has resulted in multiple sortable tables, all of which are visible after the jump. You can click the accompanying chart to see them all ranked together by January 2013 U.S. volume. Vehicles are divided into sub-segments where sales results are detailed. As was already mentioned in the small car sales posts, these sub-segment breakdowns are arbitrary and are not guaranteed to fall in line with how every buyer cross-shops.

Half of America’s small, smallish, and smallest crossovers enjoyed above-average year-over-year improvements in January 2013. From the Toyota RAV4’s 18% gain through the GMC Terrain’s 51% boost to the Dodge Journey’s 94% jump, the success of the genus parva crucis super readily apparent at new car dealers in the United States last month.
