Our Take On The Top 20 Best Selling SUV Sales Numbers

February’s sales figures see the Nissan Rogue preserve its lead atop the SUV segment, keeping it well clear of last year’s top-selling SUV, the Toyota RAV4.

A dominant force in the five years prior to 2017, the Honda CR-V continues down in third, over 12,000 sales behind the market leader.

The Chevrolet Equinox’s best-ever February sales was good for fourth overall in the SUV standings, a year-on-year increase of 7.1% putting it 10,000 units ahead of last year’s performance to date after the first one-sixth of the year.

For a sixth consecutive month, sales of the Honda Pilot SUV grew, with February’s increase totaling just shy of 50% year-on-year growth.

Other sharp increases this month came from the Subaru Crosstrek (up 60.7%), the Mazda CX-5 (a 68.7% year-on-year increase handing it its eleventh best-ever month in a row), and the Jeep Compass, clearing the lot out with a 485.5% year-on-year increase, though that’s against a period of transition for the Compass this time last year.
