The Honda CR-V maintains its status as the compact crossover king, as the Japanese CUV once again outsold the Ford Escape in June. The CR-V sold 26,129 units last month, contributing to a total of 154,692 total units sold through the first half of this year. Trailing behind it with 25,110 units, the Ford Escape barely missed the June sales crown, but still has time to catch the CR-V in annual sales with 152,890 units sold through the first half of 2014.

As usual, the Chevrolet Equinox occupies the third spot with 21,748 units, though the Toyota RAV4 came in right behind it with 21,589 crossovers sold. The newly redesigned Nissan Rogue (15,066 units) has also been comfortable in the fifth position for the better half of this year, while the Jeep Cherokee (13,337 units) barely slipped ahead of the Subaru Forester (13,317 units) for the sixth position. The GMC Terrain finished in eighth place with 8743 units sold, followed by the Mazda CX-5, which came in just shy of 8000 units. Completing the top 10 best-selling CUVs is the Jeep Patriot with 6873 crossovers sold.

The Subaru XV Crosstrek and Jeep Compass missed the cut-off, with 5434 and 5302 units sold, respectively. Hyundai's Tucson crossover came in after them, while its cousin, the Kia Sportage (3590 units) trailed behind it. Nissan dealers sold 2559 Juke compact crossovers in June, while 2416 Volkswagen Tiguans went home with new owners. Although sales for the Mini Countryman and Paceman were combined at 2138 units, together they still couldn't break the 2500 barrier.
