Largely due to a sharp declines from a handful of domestic nameplates, U.S. sales of small SUVs/crossovers decreased marginally in November 2016 despite the auto market's forward surge.

Jeep Cherokee volume plunged 37%, a loss of 6739 sales for the model that was – until November – Jeep's best seller. The GMC Terrain, approaching replacement, tumbled 31%. Jeep's Compass – soon transitioning – and the now dying Jeep Patriot also reported declines, and the Dodge Journey took an 11% dive. 

Add the top-selling Honda CR-V's 1% downturn – a new CR-V arrives this month – into the mix and the gains produced by numerous other compact crossovers were washed out.

November was the Volkswagen Tiguan's second-best U.S. sales month ever. The Kia Sportage jumped by a third. The Subau Forester, Mazda CX-5, and Hyundai Tucson? On the up and up. The Toyota RAV4, which led all SUVs/crossovers in November volume, rose 3%. 

Subcompact crossovers, meanwhile, jumped 24% to 48,467 units, led by the Jeep Renegade with its second-best month of U.S. sales to date. 

Renegade sales climbed into five-digit territory for the third time in the last five months, rising 30%, year-over-year. A huge Honda HR-V uptick and a surge from GM's subcompact twins propelled the segment.

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.
