Here you will find the Small SUV sales leaders in the United States for April 2018. Each month we compile the Small SUV sales data and reports for North American markets and analyze it to create the best selling list below.
Nissan’s widely-reported 28% drop in sales is a sharp decline in anyone’s book, with even the marque’s small SUV star, the Rogue not unfettered by the drop. The fall is thought to be due to a sudden drop in fleet sales, as well as a reduction in incentive spending on Nissan models.
Rogue sales fell by 14.8% year-on-year in April, still enough for third in the category, and not enough for it to lose the top-spot for small SUVs year-to-date.
In fairness, the Rogue’s drop in sales was not far out of step of its main rivals in the segment, with the Ford Escape’s sales even declining at a quicker pace than those of the Japanese SUV.
The Escape is long-due an upgrade, which should help sales, but in such a competitive segment the longer that is put off, the more detrimental an effect it will have on the Escape’s market share – Escape sales have fallen year-on-year in eight out of the past 12 months.
