Midsize SUV Sales In America – September 2015 YTD


2014 Mazda CX-9

Even the Mazda CX-9 joined in on the fun.

The CX-9, Mazda’s biggest vehicle and the only Mazda now available with three rows of seating, posted a 2% year-over-year U.S. sales decrease through the first eight months of 2015, which was on pace to be the lowest-volume year in the CX-9’s history.

But in September 2015, a month which added one day of sales to the calendar and Labour Day weekend’s high sales output – September 2014 didn’t include Labour Day sales and was shorter overall – the U.S. auto industry exploded with a 16% year-over-year sales increase. SUV/crossover sales were up 31%. The CX-9’s direct competitors, from the Chevrolet Traverse to the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder, and Toyota Highlander, all posted meaningful year-over-year U.S. sales increases.

So did the CX-9.

Granted, the CX-9 is still one of the lowest-volume mainstream brand three-row crossovers in America. Only the… no, the CX-9 is the lowest-volume vehicle in its class. Even Ford’s perpetually declining Ford Flex sells more often.

But in September 2015, Mazda added 332 sales to the CX-9’s ledger, an increase of 332 units.

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 Outback and Venza here but also with midsize cars, too, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with smaller utilities and the Volkswagen Touareg with luxury SUVs… 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.
