April CUV Sales: Honda CR-V Outsells Ford Escape

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 5/1/2014 Karla Sanchez

The Ford Escape gave the Honda CR-V quite a scare earlier this year with its strong performance in March, but the Honda CR-V didn't back down in April. The Japanese crossover sold 28,485 units versus the Escape's 24,579 vehicles sold. Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Equinox remained at its usual number-three spot with 20,315 crossovers 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. 2013-toyota-rav4-right-side© Provided by MotorTrend 2013-toyota-rav4-right-side

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.
