*GM has now switched to quarterly reporting so figures for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC are not up to date. We have opted against using estimated sales figures for these brands as the estimates across publications have been inconsistent.
Going forward, GoodCarBadCar will be releasing quarterly sales reports that include all figures on a quarterly basis.
Having shot ahead of the rest of the market in the first three months of the year, the Nissan Rogue fell to fourth in the SUV standings in what was a difficult month for the Japanese brand in the USA.
Rogue sales fell almost 15% year-on-year, just over half the rate at which the brand itself saw sales drop.
That handed the Toyota RAV4 the top spot for April, which managed a salubrious daily selling rate compared with last April despite not managing to top that month’s total.
The majority of Ford’s SUV lineup saw sales drop in April, with the blue oval continuing to cite fleet order timing as having a negative impact on its overall bottom line.
Hyundai, which sells three SUV models in the USA, saw its trio all increase their daily selling rate, with only the Santa Fe failing to grow volume year-on-year last month.
At the premium end of the scale, Porsche Macan sales shot up 32.5% year-on-year, a sizeable uptick for the relatively low-volume brand.
