Our Take On The Small SUVs Sales Numbers
The Toyota RAV4 managed to comfortably outsell the rest of the small SUV market in the USA last month, despite sales falling 2.4% compared with a year ago.
RAV4 sales remained exceedingly high – at 42,222 for the month of August – as its nearest competitor, the Honda CR-V, managed just under 8000 fewer units even with an 11.7% surge in sales.
The majority of small vehicle nameplates to have reported figures for August 2018 saw sales increase, for a total increase across all models (excluding GM vehicles) of 17.9% compared with last August.
Among the brands happily riding the wave of SUV demand to increased deal value is Volkswagen. Sales of its Tiguan were up 143% last month, as the brand crossed the 100,000-SUVs in a year threshold for the first time in the US – at only eight months in.
Tiguan sales along with sales of the new large VW SUV Atlas make up more than half of VW’s SUV sales in 2018 so far.
