Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 1/6/2015 Karla Sanchez

The Honda CR-V had another golden year in 2014, clinching the sales title as the best-selling crossover for the third consecutive year. While the Japanese crossover celebrated topping 300,000 units in 2013, 2014 proved to be an even better year, with just over 335,000 units sold throughout the past 12 months. Meanwhile, the Ford Escape was left in the dust with 306,212 units, while the Toyota RAV4 became the third-best-selling CUV with 267,698 examples accounted for.

With 242,242 units moved off lots, the Chevrolet Equinox took the fourth spot in December and overall sales, while the Jeep Cherokee claimed fifth for the month with 178,786 units sold. The Subaru Forester may have been the sixth best-selling crossover last month, but the Nissan Rogue took the fifth overall spot in year-to-date sales with 199,199 examples sold versus 159,953 Foresters sold. Far behind both Japanese crossovers was the GMC Terrain, which barely surpassed the 100,000 mark with 105,016 units sold. Next in line was the Jeep Patriot, which filled the ninth position in monthly sales. Looking at year-to-date sales though, the Patriot was bumped down to the tenth spot, as the Mazda CX-5 sold 99,122 for the year compared to the 93,462 Patriots sold during the same time period.

Those that didn't make the top 10 list include the Subaru XV Crosstrek, which landed in the 11th spot with 70,956 units sold. Following the Crosstrek was the Jeep Compass with 61,264 CUVs sold throughout the year, while the Kia Sportage came in behind it in monthly sales. Looking at year-to-date sales though, the Sportage's 42,945 units sold wasn't enough to surpass the 47,306 Tucsons sold. The last three crossovers on the list were the Nissan Juke (2155), Volkswagen Tiguan (2116), and Mini Countryman/Paceman, which with combined sales, couldn't even top 25,000 for the year.

With the Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass on the way out the door, it'll be interesting to see how the new 2015 Renegade fares against the competition this year.
