2015 was undeniably the Honda CR-V’s year, just as 2013 and 2014 were before it. But the end of the year ends in the Toyota RAV4’s column, as November’s best seller became December’s best seller, as well.
The RAV4 outsold the stumbling CR-V by a scant 681 units in December 2015 and lost the calendar year battle by more than 30,000 units.
But the RAV4’s momentum is likewise undeniable. 2015 sales rose 18%, far faster than the pace of the overall industry, faster too than the pace of the SUV/CUV market.

Moreover, sales in December jumped 39%, trailing only the Nissan Rogue and Mazda CX-5 among the fastest-moving top sellers last month.
