March 2016 SUV sales volume grew by 9% in the United States, year-over-year growth of 48,000 units in a market which grew by approximately 49,000 units. 

SUVs and crossovers accounted for mroe than 37% of America's new vehicle market in the first-quarter of 2016, only a few points shy of the declining passenger car sector. Four out of every ten SUV/crossover sales originate with one of the ten most popular models in America: RAV4, Escape, CR-V, Rogue, Explorer, Equinox, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Highlander.

As Toyota's cars struggle, a story we covered earlier this morning, Toyota's SUVs and crossovers are surging, nearly masking the losses incurred by the Camry, Corolla, Yaris, Avalon, and Prius.


Along with the RAV4's 14% first-quarter increase, Highlander sales are up 9% in advance of the refreshed model's arrival. The Toyota 4Runner is now America's 18th-best-selling SUV thanks to a 16% year-over-year increase. Even Sequoia and Land Cruiser sales are rising. And at Toyota's upmarket Lexus division, the brand's four utility vehicles collectively reported an 11% increase in U.S. volume in 2016's first-quarter.
