Toyota's RAV4 continues to be the leader of the utility vehicle pack, claiming top spot for a seventh consecutive month thanks to a 1400-unit victory over the second-ranked Ford Escape in May.

Although the U.S. auto industry struggled to match May 2015's volume because of a shortened auto sales month – there were two fewer selling days, an 8% time deficit – the RAV4 and Escape were joined by 9 utility vehicles in the top 20 which outpaced their May 2015 auto sales performance. 


Leading that group were the Hyundai Santa Fe, sales of which jumped 88% to 14,732 units, and the Jeep Renegade, which climbed into the top 20 with a 146% year-over-year increase.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling SUVs and crossovers can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. GoodCarBadCar has already published the list of America's best-selling trucks in May and will shortly publish the list of America's 20 best-selling cars.
