2017 Best Selling SUVs In the United States (All Models Ranked)
The 107 SUV & Crossover nameplates on sale in the USA in 2017 accounted for 42% of all vehicle sales for the year, an increase in this segment’s market share from 39.5% a year ago. 2017 saw these higher-riding vehicles put the squeeze on passenger car sales once again as US consumers flock to buy them, despite higher price tags and many models, particularly in the crossover segment, being not mechanically dissimilar from the passenger cars the automakers also sell.
Indeed, it’s this penchant for SUVs that has been a driving factor in the record high transaction value reported at the end of December. Over 352,000 extra sales over 2016’s year-end figures came from the vehicles listed below. A bumper year at the top of the chart, driven by intense rivalry between the Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 has seen a lot of change in the podium spots. Last year’s leader in this segment, the Honda CR-V, now sits third despite a 5.8% rise in its sales for the year compared with 2016’s end.
