Our Take On The Small SUVs Sales Numbers

After a dip for October 2016, the Small and Crossover SUV segment recovered somewhat for October 2017. Sales are up 4.3% on last year, though that was a 6% drop on October 2015.

The new Jeep Compass continues to come up short of combined sales of itself and the Patriot, now amalgamated into one model. The Cherokee also fell by almost 3% on last year, and year-to-date is down by almost a fifth.

Volkswagen’s small SUV, the Tiguan, is up over 50% as the German marque begins to surf the tide of a turnaround after the dieselgate fiasco marred sales. The 2018 model has proven popular with US consumers since its introduction, though thanks to a few slow months around changeover time earlier in the year, its year-to-date doesn’t reflect its popularity.

Subaru tops the Subcompact SUV and Crossover table, almost 2,000 units ahead of its nearest competitor the Buick Encore. Year-to-date, the rugged little Subaru has over 18% market share of this section of the market, and its 13.9% growth over the course of 2017 is ahead of the segment’s 10.9% growth.
