The most popular Japanese SUVs in America in October 2010 were all more successful this year than last. Sales increases ranged from a relatively low 2.2% gain for the Nissan Murano to the 1161.5% improvement put up by the Toyota 4Runner, a Good 12 Supersize winner. Five of the vehicles in the list below also made it into the more prestigious Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In America group, the Honda Pilot wasn’t far from it.

Officially, The Good Car Guy isn’t a fan of the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, Lexus RX350, or Honda Pilot, but that wouldn’t stop GoodCarBadCar.net from declining to extinguish these vehicles from the Marketplace, a rare decline indeed. Sure, the CR-V and Lexus are dull. The Rogue is awkward and the Pilot is ugly, but none of these vehicles are trademark bad. Any CR-V buyer should take a longer look at the boxy Honda Element, even as Rogue buyers should consider the smaller 2011 Nissan Juke; RX350 customers should be squeezed into an Audi Q5; and Honda Pilot buyers should examine a Toyota 4Runner. If people are still intent on the CR-V, Rogue, RX, and Pilot, so be it. Perhaps they’re a bit dull, too.
