Korean automakers also powered forward with a huge increase in sales of their four SUV nameplates. (The Hyundai Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport’s figures are combined by Hyundai into one model.) The Santa Fe, Kia Sorento, Hyundai Tucson, and Kia Sportage combined fo 46,205 sales in June 2016, a 74% increase from the 26,569 utility vehicles sold by Hyundai-Kia in June 2015.
After accounting for 22% of the new vehicles sold by Hyundai-Kia’s U.S. network in June 2015, the Santa Fe, Sorento, Tucson, and Sportage grabbed 36% of the conglomerate’s U.S. volume in June 2016.
But by no means are the increasingly popular Hyundais and Kias the only utility vehicles to gain market share in 2016. Triple-digit percentage increases have been produced so far this year by the Volvo XC90 and BMW X1. The Mitsubishi Outlander, Jeep Compass, Audi Q7, Lincoln MKX, Lexus LX570, and Volkswagen Tiguan have all grown by more than 50% in the first-half of 2016.

Reminder: these are 2016 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort SUVs/crossovers by June volume by clicking the June 2016 column header, or you can rank SUVs/crossovers by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV/Crossover column header.
As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
