Just when the Ford Escape thought it had the 2013 crossover sales crown in the bag, the Honda CR-V challenged it in August by selling 34,654 units compared to the 26,714 Escapes sold, and finally beating its year-to-date sales by nearly 2000 units.
The Chevrolet Equinox and the Toyota RAV4 have also started their own rivalry, as the RAV4 pushed the Equinox out of its long-standing third position in July. The Japanese crossover, however, couldn't pull off a repeat performance, selling 23,502 units versus the Equinox's 25,073 crossover sales. The Nissan Rogue maintained its fifth-place position with 17,273 units, though it could give the RAV4 something to worry about when the redesigned CUV comes out.
Meanwhile, the Subaru Forester and GMC Terrain took up the sixth and seventh spots in the crossover race with 13,163 and 11,120 units, respectively. The Mazda CX-5 once again stayed in the eighth position with 8506 units, while the Jeep cousins remained close together in the ninth and tenth positions, with 7170 Patriots and 5249 Compasses sold.
The Subaru XV Crosstrek still couldn't catch a break in August, not selling enough to qualify as a top-10 crossover best-seller, though it finished ahead of the Nissan Juke, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Tiguan, and the Mini Countryman and Paceman.
