The midsized crossover segment in Europe is up 8% in 2019 to 872,500 sales, or 5.6% of the total European car market (up from 5.2% in 2018). Like the midsized car segment, this is the smallest class where luxury brands outsell their mainstream rivals, at 58.9% share of the midsized crossover class, down from 64.3% in 2018 due to some impressive gains from the top mainstream models. In 2018 the two best selling midsized crossovers were luxury models, but the Mercedes-Benz GLC is now down to third place overall and the Volvo XC60 is down to fifth place overall. The Toyota RAV4 grabs the top spot with sales up 33% to almost 92,000 thanks to the new generation and popularity of the hybrid version. However, this is not even the RAV4’s best year in Europe, it was above 100k in 2004 and 2006. The Skoda Kodiaq, without any apparent reason, is up 38% to a new annual sales record for the nameplate at over 88,500 sales, jumping above 10% share. The best selling mainstream model of 2018 Peugeot 5008 is down 3% and into 6th place overall, while the Mitsubishi Outlander also sets a new annual sales record, with a record take rate of 81.2% for the PHEV version.
