1,092,264 SUVs and crossovers were sold in America in the first quarter of 2013; 426,751 in March 2013 alone. Of course, these numbers depend on the means by which you qualify vehicles to be crossovers.
GCBC has listed the Subaru Outback, Volvo XC70, Subaru XV Crosstrek, Honda Crosstour, and Toyota Venza with cars, but the Buick Encore and Mini Paceman are on this list.
Regardless, the Ford Escape is definitely the utility vehicle leader. It’s opened up a 7609-unit lead over the Honda CR-V through three months. At this time last year the Escape was nearly 16,000 sales behind the CR-V.
America’s five most popular utility vehicles account for 26.5% of the segment’s volume. In fact, the top five SUVs outsell the bottom 60 – Jeep Compass, BMW X5, Nissan Murano on down – combined.
