July 2015 YTD U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 94 Best-Selling SUVs In America – Every SUV Ranked


2015 BMW X5 white

U.S. sales of SUVs and crossovers jumped 14% in July 2015, driving the year-to-date rate of improvement up to 13%. 

Passenger car volume dropped by nearly 18,000 units in July 2015, a 3% year-over-year drop. But the gain produced by SUVs and crossovers, led by the Honda CR-V, totalled more than 67,000 extra sales compared with July 2014.

Much as many established nameplates, like the CR-V, continue to increase their volume, a significant portion of the SUV/CUV market’s growth is derived from nameplates which weren’t on sale a year ago.

Even in Honda showrooms, the HR-V has contributed 20,050 sales already this year. The smallest Honda utility vehicle has only been on sale since May.

Together, the HR-V, Chevrolet Trax, Lexus NX, Jeep Renegade, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q3, Land Rover Discovery Sport, and Fiat 500X earned 3.5% of the SUV/CUV category’s year-to-date volume.

Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Paceman and Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it’s with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type’s name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can’t be squeezed through a round hole.
