The Compact SUV segment grew by 13% over the period Q1-Q3 compared to the same period in 2014. As such, it is still the second fastest growing non-premium SUV segment, after the Subcompact SUV segment, and easily retains its mantle as the largest single segment in the US, widening its gap to the Mid-sized and Compact car segments (down 2% and up 2%, respectively, on Q1-Q3 2014).
Honda CR-V and Ford Escape remain at the top of the segment
Nissan Rogue seems destined to take 4th place in the segment by the end of the year, having outsold the Chevy by over 7,000 in Q3
Jeep’s happy times are evident for everyone to see, with three out of four (!) models it offers in this segment gaining sales over the period Q1-Q3, making it easily the largest brand in the Compact SUV segment
The new Hyundai Tucson went on sale in Q3, resulting in sales growing by 46% compared to the same period last year, and putting the model in the black for the year
Another model that saw its sales rise, by an even more impressive 117%, was the Land Rover Discovery Sport, although its sales are still really low for the segment
VW’s Tiguan also saw its sales rise by 44% in Q3, despite Dieselgate, or possibly because of incentives that VW has been throwing at potential customers in the wake of the scandal
