Our Take On The SUV sales Numbers

Rogue triumphs for January in the SUV segment, starting the year with an almost 10,000-sale buffer to the Toyota RAV4.

Last month was still RAV4’s best start to the year on record, so expect more of the same jostling for the top spot in the SUV sales figures chart between these pair in the months to come.

The all-new Chevrolet Equinox launches itself into third place, putting out the Honda CR-V with a 50% year-on-year increase in its sales.

The SUV market as a whole has grown almost 10% compared with last January, providing a meaningful contribution to bring the overall vehicle sales market in the USA ahead of where it was this time last year.
