The Chevrolet Captiva Sport continues to sell more frequently than the Volkswagen Tiguan. Those two vehicles have very little to do with one another. They’re both small utility vehicles, yes, but one is a high-priced German which sells to consumers, the other a copy of the old Saturn Vue which sells to fleets. Still seems strange though, doesn’t it?
GM’s two consumer-directed small crossovers, the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain, combined for 28,588 sales in June 2012. That would just have been enough to pip the Ford Escape… if the GM twins were a GM single. This was the best month ever for the Ford Escape. Honda’s CR-V is still the leader on year-to-date terms, both among small SUVs and crossovers and the whole gamut of SUVs and crossovers.
June 2012 Midsize SUV Sales Chart

GM’s Lambda platform trio is on the way back, however, as the 2012 clear out takes hold in earnest, in advance of the arrival of the revamped MY2013s. GM sold 24,573 Enclaves, Traverses, and Acadias in June 2012, up 44% from June 2011. Toyota, Honda, and Nissan combined for 24,815 sales of their highest-volume midsize utilities in June: the Highlander, Pilot, and Murano.
