Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 6/3/2014 Karla Sanchez

The Honda CR-V continued its sales success in May with 32,430 units sold, which again means the Ford Escape came in second-best with 31,896 crossovers sold. While the Chevrolet Equinox usually rounds out the top three, it was a different story last month as the Toyota RAV4 beat it out with 23,465 units sold compared to the 22,695 Chevrolet crossovers sold.

Following the fourth-place Equinox is the Nissan Rogue in fifth with 18,722 units accounted for. The Jeep Cherokee also had a good month in May, coming up only 8 units short from selling 16,000. Meanwhile, our 2014 Motor Trend SUV of the Year, the Subaru Forester, landed in the seventh spot with 14,146 units moved off dealer lots. Although it couldn't surpass the 10,000 mark, the fuel-efficient Mazda CX-5 still brought in good numbers with 9291 sold, while the GMC Terrain and Jeep Compass rounded out the top 10 with 8734 and 8666 crossovers sold, respectively. 2014 Toyota RAV4© Provided by MotorTrend 2014 Toyota RAV4

The Jeep Patriot wasn't far from making the cutoff with 8242 units, though the Subaru Crosstrek was behind with only 5778 units. The Hyundai Tucson couldn't quite get to 5000 units with 4482, while the Kia Sportage fared better than it did in April with 4009 units. Following the Kia are the Nissan Juke, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Mini Countryman/Paceman.
