Small SUV Sales In America - March 2017

2017 Nissan Rogue orange
Small SUV/crossover volume jumped 11% to nearly 250,000 units in the United States in March 2017, propelled by huge increases from the Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V, Dodge Journey, and Mitsubishi Outlander. 

And the Subaru Forester. And the Toyota RAV4. And the Hyundai Tucson. Also, the GMC Terrain. Chevrolet Equinox sales increased, as well.

The Nissan Rogue is building its lead as America's top-selling utility vehicle in early 2017, leading first-quarter sales by 7364 units compared with the Honda CR-V, America's top-selling SUV in each of the last five years. 

A notorious fleet favourite, the Nissan Rogue was America's best-selling vehicle to daily rental fleets as recently as January, a source tells GCBC. 26% of the Rogues sold in January were sold to daily rental companies. If that percentage held through the first-quarter, retail Rogue volume stood around 75,000 units in 2017 Q1, hardly a small figure representative of a vehicle with no consumer demand.

As Nissan attempts go hold on to 10% of the U.S. market, the Rogue is central to the automaker's strategy. An in-demand vehicle in an in-demand segment is a vital product, and deriving Rogue inventory from three plants has enabled Nissan USA to keep momentum alive.

There'll be a new challenger in Nissan's showrooms later this spring. The Rogue Sport, known as the Qashqai in other markets, could eat into the Rogue's market share.

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.
