Subcompact crossover growth has predictably slowed in early 2017 – the massive rates of improvement seen while the category was filling up over the last two years couldn’t last forever.
But it’s still a category that’s rapidly gaining market share. In 2016’s first two months, subcompact CUVs accounted for 2.7% of the U.S. new vehicle market, up from 1.6% in the first two months of 2015.
Led by General Motors’ twins, the Jeep Renegade, and the Honda HR-V, the subcompact CUV segment now accounts for 3.1% of U.S. new vehicle sales.

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 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.
