The RAV4 has yet to be joined by a subcompact sibling, but the C-HR, initially intended for the now discontinued Scion, will soon provide an in-showroom challenge to the RAV4. Yet the arrival of the HR-V isn’t slowing CR-V sales growth at Honda – CR-V volume is up 15% so far this year.

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.
