February 2016 YTD U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 96 Best-Selling SUVs In America – Every SUV Ranked


2015 Jeep Renegade

America’s auto industry reported a collective 7% increase in new vehicle sales volume in February 2016. Wrapped inside the market’s 1.34 million sales was the SUV/crossover sector’s 37% market share.

SUVs and crossovers earned slightly less than 36% of the auto industry’s volume in February 2015, but sales of utility vehicles jumped 12% in February 2016, easily outpacing the growth of the industry as a whole.

Top tier candidates were responsible for much of the SUV/CUV market’s rise. Of the 55,000+ extra sales, the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and Ford Explorer contributed more than 13,000 additional sales, year-over-year.

The RAV4 claimed top spot among SUVs for a second consecutive month. The margin of victory, however, was only 273-units strong, down from 1792 units in January.

Through the first one-sixth of 2016, utility vehicles which weren’t on sale at this stage of 2015 added 30,333 sales to the ledger: Renegade, HR-V, CX-3, 500X, and Discovery Sport.

Growth among subcompact crossovers continues to easily outperform the SUV/CUV sector, not a surprising turn of events given the frequency with which all-new models are introduced. But no truly small utility vehicle has climbed all that high on the sales charts. Yet.
