The new Jeep Wrangler is unable to repeat its amazing April performance and drops back to 13th spot, still over 25% ahead of May’17
In a mirror move, Nissan Rogue is back on top of the non-truck rankings, coming back from an April foray outside of the Top 10
After seeing its sales rise ever since the new generation model hit the forecourts, Toyota Camry once again sees its sales fall, this time by double digits, dropping all the way down to 9th spot; still, this is not as bad as the fortunes of its closest competitor Honda Accord, whose sales fell by around 20% for the second month running
Chevy Equinox is once again the model in the Top 10 with the largest gain of almost 50%, proving that the new, streamlined wagon-esque model is a real hit with the buyers
Top 11-50 highlights
Jeep Compass is once again the big winner in the Top 11-50 range, getting very close to the Top 20, a feat all the more impressive given the success enjoyed by its stablemates: the aforementioned Wrangler, and the facelifted Cherokee (up over 60%, for its highest ranking in almost two years)
In a situation that is like an exaggerated snapshot of the whole american car market, Volkswagen had a mixture of crossovers that did best in the Top 51-100 range (Tiguan L, setting a new record, and Atlas, up 143%), as well as mainstream models that did the worst: Golf, down 55%, and Jetta, down 41%
It was a less happy month for Chevrolet Camaro (down over 50%), Nissan Maxima (down 38%) and Buick Envision (down over 40%), the latter suggesting that the model may be feeling its age despite coming to the U.S. from China less than two years ago
New model highlights
Best selling newcomer is the aforementioned Volkswagen Tiguan L (#57) followed by the Tesla Model 3 (#71) and the Ford EcoSport (#76), all three models setting new monthly sales records, with the Tesla crossing 6,000 units for the first time
Hyundai Kona improved 20 spots to #80 and crossed 5,000 sales for the first time, BMW X2 improved almost 30 spots to $153 and jumped ahead of the Kia Stinger (#155) and Volvo XC40, which fell both in sales and in rankings compared to April
Range Rover Velar and Alfa Romeo Stelvio both seem to be oscillating around something like an equilibrium level, around 1,500 for the former and 1,000 for the latter, which will be rather disappointing for Alfa Romeo if it proves to be the case long-term
Further down Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross enters the Top 200 at #198 and a little under 1,000 cars, while the slow start of the Jaguar E-Pace continues, with the model only reaching 342 sales and #235
