2019 U.S Small SUV Sales Analysis

Report Updated: With all 2019 Sales Data on January 3rd, 2020

Top Level US Reports: By Manufacturer / By Brand / By Model / Best Sellers

Small SUV sales in the U.S. struggled in the month of December. The segment was down for 2019 as well. This is somewhat surprising considering SUV sales have been so strong over the course of the last couple of years.

When you look at just the month of December, the segment was down by about 38,000 sales. When you look at the year as a whole, you’ll notice that the segment was behind 2018’s sales numbers by about 85,000 sales. This would suggest that December was truly a bad month for the segment.

With all that said, the Toyota RAV4 led the way in terms of sales volume. The vehicle saw sales rise for both the month of December and 2019 as a whole. The Honda CR-V was in second place, and it saw sales drop in the month of December but rise for all of 2019. The Nissan Rogue came in third place, though it saw sales decline for both the month of December and 2019 as a whole.

We expect more of the sale in 2020. We would think that the segment might close the gap a little bit, but overall, the end of 2019 should serve as an indicator of what is to come in 2020.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
