Small SUV Sales In America - May 2014 YTD

2014 Chevrolet Equinox
Not even including the smallest of utility vehicles, like the Buick Encore and Mini Countryman, CR-V/Escape-class small crossovers and SUVs accounted for 47.8% of the American SUV/crossover market in May 2014. That's way up from 44.7% in May 2013 and up slightly from the 47.1% achievement in April 2014.

These small SUVs and crossovers reported 26% year-over-year volume gains in the United States in May as only one member of the vast segment reported decreased volume. 

That vehicle, the Chevrolet Equinox, was down just 1%, a loss of only 223 units. Segment-wide sales were up by 50,755 units.

The class leaders - Honda's aforementioned CR-V and Ford's Escape - combined to own 26.5% of the category's sales, down from 29.4% in May 2013. 

In part, you can blame the rise of the Jeep Cherokee - there was no Cherokee available a year ago. But many of the category's rising stars are growing their U.S. sales much faster than the CR-V. In fact, Escape sales are down slightly, albeit very slightly, through the first five months of 2014.

Through the end of May, the Mazda CX-5, Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan Rogue, and Subaru Forester have all reported year-over-year improvements above 30%.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small cars, too, and the tweener-sized Sorento and Santa Fe are shown with midsize SUVs and small SUVs, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with midsizers, as well... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. GCBC has historically shown the Liberty with midsize SUVs but as the Cherokee - truly not midsize inside - replaces the Liberty, proper year-over-year comparison requires seeing the Liberty listed here with these smaller utility vehicles.
