Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In America - September 2013

2013 Mazda CX-5
The Ford Escape climbed back atop the best-selling SUV leaderboard in the United States in September 2013, but it didn't so with enough force to take back the year-to-date lead. Honda's CR-V still leads the Escape by a (virtually meaningless) 792 units with three months of 2013 remaining.

The Escape was joined by two other Fords in the top 11. The CR-V's big brother, the Pilot, was America's tenth-best-selling SUV in September 2013. 

Three Jeeps and a Dodge, two Toyotas and a Lexus, and three GM products filled in most of the gaps, The Subaru Forester climbed to ninth spot from tenth a month ago. The Mazda CX-5 moved up one spot to 18th. Kia's Sorento rose from 15th to 13th and the Hyundai Santa Fe moved up from 20th to 17th.


During a month in which auto sales predictably fell from a volume perspective - there were two fewer days included in September's total this year and no Labour Day weekend sales - seven utility vehicles managed to sell more often in September 2013's 23 days than in September 2012's 25 days. That includes the third-ranked Toyota RAV4, which rose 15.5% even as the Escape and CR-V ahead of it slid 2.3% and 3.7%.
