Small SUV Sales In America - October 2016 YTD

2017 Subaru Forester grey
Despite the 6% slowdown in U.S. new vehicle sales in October 2016, a year-over-year drop worth 86,000 lost sales compared with October 2015, Americans still bought and leased more utility vehicles this October than last.

But Americans did buy fewer crossovers from the Honda CR-V/Toyota RAV4/Ford-Escape-led compact crossover category in October. And the subcompact crossover segment that had grown by a third, year-over-year, through the first three-quarters of 2016, was up just 2% in October.

The odd U.S. auto sales calendar played a role in skewing the numbers. In "October 2015," the calendar sailed into November, stretching the sales month two days longer than October 2016. Thus, the daily selling rate of these compact crossovers actually increased this year. (The Ford Escape's 5% volume decline in "October 2016" equalled a 2% DSR improvement.) 

On the other hand, surging incentives likely created an unnatural level of demand across the industry. The average discount per vehicle in October 2016 was 16% higher than during the same period one year ago.

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.
