Sport Utility Segment was stable (+0.1%) in 2019 and the Toyota RAV4 was the best-selling model (+13.9%) followed by the Honda CR-V which outpaced the Volkswagen Tiguan down in double-digits (-8.2%). The Haval H6 and Nissan Rogue fell at the edge of the top 10.
As first we wish to highlight as we do not assembly sales of vehicles sold under different nameplates and in this ranking we are not adding sales of Renault Duster to those under Dacia Duster, despite we know they are the same model under different umbrella. The reason behind this choice is we have chosen to look at this ranking as consumers do.
Said this, the race for the 2019 best-selling model showed the Toyota RAV4 leading with 947.919 sales (+13.9%).
This has been the first Sport Utility Vehicles sold worldwide, launched in Japan and Europe in the 1994 and actually at the 5th generation, launched during the year all over the World (in US just in December).
The second best-selling SUV is the Honda CR-V with 811.209 units (+10.8%), up one place from the previous year. Produced since the 1995, this model has been stable in the last four years despite of the introduction – in the 2017 – of the 4th generation.
In third place, the Volkswagen Tiguan, with 736.885 units, down 8.2%. The Tiguan is produced since the 2007 but is a global car just since the introduction of the second generation in the 2016.
In fourth place the Hyundai Tucson with 530.169 units (-7.1%), followed by the Nissan Qashqai with 498.915 (-3.3%).
