Small SUV Sales In America – November 2014 YTD


2013 Ford Escape green

The Honda CR-V outsold every passenger car nameplate in America in November 2014 on its way to ending the month not just as America’s favourite SUV, but America’s favourite vehicle-that-isn’t-a-pickup-truck.

And it wasn’t a close margin, either, as the CR-V tromped the next-bests-selling Toyota Camry by 3532 units. In other words, Honda sold more CR-Vs by November 27, 2014, than Toyota sold Camrys in the whole month (Black Friday success implications, notwithstanding). 

As you’d expect then, the CR-V had no difficulty securing its top dog status in its own category, outselling the Ford Escape by 6850 units. It’s not as though the Escape had a poor month: sales were up 22% and it was America’s seventh-best-selling vehicle, outsold only by three pickup trucks, two cars, and the CR-V. 

Together with their three best-selling rivals from Toyota, Chevrolet, and Nissan, these most popular small SUVs account for 25.6% of all SUV/crossover sales in America this year although they account for just 5.6% of the available nameplates.

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. 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.
