February CUV Sales: Nissan Rogue Soars While Ford Escape Dives

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/4/2015 Karla Sanchez

The compact crossover segment saw a bit of shuffling at the top of the sales charts this past February. The Honda CR-V stayed cemented in first place with 22,298 units sold, while the Toyota RAV4 finished in the second position with 21,943 crossovers. That left the third spot for the Chevrolet Equinox, which finished the month with 21,723 units sold. The Ford Escape, on the other hand, didn't have such a good month, falling from second in January to fifth last month.

Also in the 21,000-range was the Nissan Rogue, which had an excellent February with 21,419 examples sold. The Japanese crossover managed to overtake the Ford Escape, pushing the Blue Oval-badged crossover down to the fifth position with 20,915 units sold. After the top five, it's business as usual for the most part, with the Jeep Cherokee in the sixth spot with 14,026 units sold, the Subaru Forester in seventh place with 11,459 units, and the GMC Terrain in the number-eight slot with 10,859 examples purchased by new owners. The Jeep Patriot is still alive and kicking, as the off-roader still managed to make the top 10 with 10,280 units sold. Although the Mazda CX-5 didn’t quite hit the 10,000 mark, the 7445 units sold still earned it a place in the top 10.

Unlike the popular Forester, only 6406 Subaru Crosstreks found homes in February, while Jeep only sold 4669 Compasses -- a stark contrast to how many Cherokees were sold. Following the Compass was the Hyundai Tucson with 3869 units, while its platform-mate, the Kia Sportage, came in behind it with 3407. The Nissan Juke (2183), Volkswagen Tiguan (1819), and Mini Countryman/Paceman (1001) once again landed in the bottom three.
