Subaru and Kia Excel in November Crossover Sales

If the Ford Escape wants to be crowned the best-selling crossover in 2013, it has lots of catching up to do. Once again, the Ford crossover couldn't match the Honda CR-V in November. A bit lower on the compact crossover sales chart, Subaru and Kia excelled in November.


Despite beating the RAV4 in year-to-date crossover sales, the Chevrolet Equinox landed in the fourth slot, while the 2014 Motor Trend SUV of the Year, the Subaru Forester (13,410 units), pulled ahead of the Nissan Rogue (10,487) for the fifth position. With the new 2014 Rogue just hitting dealerships, though, the Forester's upswing may be short-lived.

The Jeep Cherokee burst onto the scene in November with 10,169 units sold. Another Subie overtook the Jeep siblings. The XV Crosstrek jumped two spots up the chart with 5311 units, bumping the Patriot (5184 units) and the Compass (3547 units) down a spot.

The Kia Sportage also overtook the Compass in the crossover contest with its 4693 units sold, however, it still wasn't enough to land it in the top 10. Below the Sportage was the Compass, Nissan Juke, Hyundai Tucson, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Mini Countryman/Paceman.
