Small SUV Sales In America - September 2015 YTD

2014 Chevrolet Trax red
U.S. sales of small SUVs tracked right alongside the overall SUV/crossover sector in September 2015. 

As SUV/CUV sales jumped 31% in a particularly healthy September, U.S. sales of small SUVs/crossovers, led by the Honda CR-V, America's most popular utility vehicle, jumped 30%.

Their smaller siblings, a quickly growing list of subcompact crossovers, generated a 158% year-over-year U.S. sales increase. September marked the best month ever for the Chevrolet Trax, a fifth consecutive month above 3000 units for the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and a fifth consecutive month in which Subaru XV Crosstrek sales climbed past the 7K mark.

Nevertheless, the subcompact group of 11 nameplates produces collective volume that amounts to a relatively small slice of the pie. 

With fewer than 41,000 sales in September 2015, the subcompact category generated 17,685 fewer sales than the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape alone, not even taking into account a large number of other very popular small SUVs.

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 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.
