It's usually a tug-of-war between the Ford Escape and the Honda CR-V in compact crossover sales, and the Japanese CUV won the battle in April, selling 28,485 units versus the Escape's 24,579 vehicles sold. Per usual, the Chevrolet Equinox finished in the third spot with 20,315 units sold.
The Toyota RAV4 (18,834 units) and the Nissan Rogue(15,066 units) stayed put in the fourth and fifth positions, respectively. However, the Jeep Cherokee crept up on the Nissan crossover, selling only 59 units less than the Rogue. In the seventh position is the Subaru Forester with 11,547 Subies sold, making it the last crossover to go above the 10,000-mark in April. Although the Jeep Patriot couldn't quite reach that cap, it still came in the eighth spot with 8339 units, followed by the GMC Terrain with 7791 vehicles accounted for. The Mazda CX-5 took the last spot in the top 10 list with 6835 units moved off dealer lots.
Thanks to the popular Jeep Cherokee, the Subaru XV Crosstrek was knocked off the top list, selling only 5678 units in April. The Hyundai Tucson, Nissan Juke, and Kia Sportage all came in behind it, but the crossover that really seemed to take a hit in April was the Volkswagen Tiguan, which fell below the Mini Countryman and Paceman with only 1998 units.
