Honda CR-V Reclaims Top Spot in September 2014 Crossover Sales

The Honda CR-V took the number one spot back in the crossover sales race in September after the Toyota RAV4 overtook it in August. With 23,722 units moved off the lot, the CR-V beat the Toyota RAV4 by just under 1000 units. That leaves the Ford Escape in third place with 21,718 units sold.

With 17,266 units sold for the month, the Chevrolet Equinox finished in the fourth spot ahead of the Nissan Rogue, but only by 37 units. Behind the Rogue was the Jeep Cherokee with 14,639 units, which is still more than combined sales of its stablemates, the Jeep Patriot (9117) and the Jeep Compass (4666). Subaru’s best-seller, the Forester, finished in the seventh spot behind the Cherokee with 12,584 units, followed by the Patriot and the GMC Terrain, which moved 8310 CUVs off the lot. Rounding out the top 10 is the Mazda CX-5 with 8097 units.

Far behind the CX-5 was the Subaru XV Crosstrek (5691), followed by the Jeep Compass. The Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson both couldn’t break the 4000-unit barrier with 3781 and 3589 units, respectively. Combined sales of the Mini Countryman/Paceman totaled 2103, while Nissan Juke sales fell to 1814 units this past month. The Volkswagen Tiguan again finshed dead last with 1674 units sold.
