June marked the first time in nine tries that U.S. sales of the fleet-only Chevrolet Captiva Sport fell on a year-over-year basis. Chevrolet hasn’t reported a year-over-year decline in Equinox sales since December 2011. Mitsubishi Outlander Sport sales have risen in ten consecutive months.
June was the fifth consecutive month in which, year-over-year, Hyundai Tucson sales dropped and the 18th consecutive month in which sales of its partner, the Kia Sportage, dropped.
The Ford Escape continues to be America’s best-selling utility vehicle, regardless of stature. Escape volume is up by 29,459 units in 2013. Sales of the next-best-selling Honda CR-V are down by 919 units this year. For the CR-V to end 2013 as America’s favourite SUV or crossover, it would need to average monthly victories of 1811 units over the remainder of the calendar year.
While that’s entirely possible, it seems unlikely given the Escape’s upward trend. Keep in mind, with half of 2013 complete, General Motors has sold 177,073 copies of its Equinox and GMC Terrain twins, up from 157,492 at this time last year.
