Our Take On The SUV sales Numbers

Ford and GM’s SUV sales numbers aren’t included due to quarterly reporting practices, but despite this we can get a pretty good view of how SUV sales started in 2019.

Honda’s CR-V leads the way beating out its rivals, the Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4, for the top spot. The CR-V saw a significant sales percentage increase for January. The Rogue and RAV4 saw sales decreases for the month when compared to last year’s numbers.

Other standouts include the Dodge Journey with a huge sales percentage increase over last year. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport also saw a similar increase, and the Land Rover Range Rover saw a healthy increase in sales.

Less impressive sales percentage increases, but still notable, include the Subaru Forester and the Acura RDX.

Notable sales decreases include the Mazda CX-5 and the Subaru Outback, Honda Pilot, and Subaru Crosstrek.

It will be interesting to see where Ford and GM’s SUVs fall in relation to the others.
