Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In America - August 2015

2015 Honda CR-V rear
Not only was the Honda CR-V America's best-selling SUV in August 2015, the CR-V was America's best-selling SUV/crossover over the last year. 

August marked the 12th consecutive month in which the CR-V led all utility vehicles. The middle-rung Honda SUV/CUV was also America's top-selling SUV/CUV in each of the last three calendar years.

With one fewer day to sell vehicles this August than last and with Labour Day sales included in last year's figures but not this year's, a number of vehicles revealed somewhat more disappointing numbers than you might expect for a surging market. Those numbers must be placed in the context of what could be an especially forceful September.

The CR-V was joined by one other Honda in the top 20. The new Pilot was down 6% and landed in the 16th position.

In the top 20, there are four Jeeps, including three in the top ten. Jeep also sold 8156 Renegades and 7523 Compasses last month.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling SUVs and crossovers can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. GoodCarBadCar has already published the list of America's best-selling trucks in August and will shortly publish the list of America's 20 best-selling cars.
