2015 Ford Edge
Back-to-back record-setting months drove the Honda CR-V out of second spot and into first place among U.S. SUV/crossover sales. August 2016 CR-V sales jumped 5% to a best-ever 36,517 units, and with that 3346-unit victory over the Toyota RAV4, the Honda now leads the RAV4 by 667 sales heading into the final one-third of 2016.

The Honda CR-V has been America's best-selling utility vehicle in four consecutive years.

By no means was the Toyota RAV4 struggling in August 2016, the best-ever August for the small Toyota crossover. In fact, August 2016 was the highest-volume month in the Toyota RAV4's history, as well. 

Indeed, August 2016 was the second-best month in the Nissan Rogue's history and the best-ever month for the fifth-ranked Jeep Cherokee and the seventh-ranked Subaru Forester.
