The Toyota RAV4’s sales were up 8.82 percent for the year and an impressive 60.63 for the month of December. The Honda CR-V saw sales increases of 8.79 percent for the year and 30.74 percent for the month of December.

The next three vehicles in terms of sales volume all saw declines for the month of December and the year as a whole.

One notable SUV, the Jeep Wrangler, saw a sales jump of 38.01 percent in December and 42.32 percent for the year. Even more impressive was the VW Tiguan’s sales increases for the year and for December. It saw rises of 42.73 percent and 40.09 percent respectively.

Although December wasn’t a great month for sales for many models, SUV sales are still strong and that should continue in 2019.
