Competition for midsize cars can be seen here, in compact crossovers, sales of which jumped 6% in August, on par with the rate of growth achieved by the Honda CR-V-led category through the first two-thirds of 2016. 

Yes, the CR-V is the new leader. After record sales in July propelled the CR-V to a close second-place, another all-time record from the Honda bumped the Toyota RAV4 into second spot.

RAV4 sales are healthier than ever, mind you, but the CR-V – America's top-selling utility vehicle in each of the last four years and in eight of the last nine – is back on its usual perch. 

Heading into September, the CR-V was 667 sales ahead of the RAV4. The RAV4, meanwhile, is 15,782 sales ahead of the Nissan Rogue, which is also on a record-setting pace. Just as the Ford Escape is on track for its best U.S. sales year ever. And the Subaru Forester. And the Hyundai Tucson.

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.
