But CR-V sales decreased by a modest 1% in May 2015. Compared with May 2014, CR-V volume declined by 340 units after increasing by 6446 units over the first four months of 2015. Overall, however, Honda’s small utility vehicle volume was far from harmed.
May 2015 was the first month of sales for the new Fit-based HR-V crossover, and Honda sold a whole bunch of them, 6381 of them to be precise. Incidentally, the HR-V was welcomed by its rivals with a number of impressive sales performances, as well.
May was the third consecutive month above 5K for the Buick Encore (+21%), the best month yet for the Chevrolet Trax, the best month yet for the Jeep Renegade, a record month for the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and the best month ever for the Subaru XV Crosstrek.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you’ll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small cars, too, and the tweener-sized Sorento and Santa Fe are shown with midsize SUVs and small SUVs, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with midsizers, as well… because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. GCBC has historically shown the Liberty with midsize SUVs but as the Cherokee – truly not midsize inside – replaces the Liberty, proper year-over-year comparison requires seeing the Liberty listed here with these smaller utility vehicles.
