The U.S. compact SUV class ranking in the first three quarters of 2020 is still led by two uncompromising competitors – the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. The TOP 5 also includes the Jeep Wrangler.
Despite the pandemic, the collapse of the U.S. car market has not happened, although demand for new vehicles really declined.
The compact SUV segment is the fastest growing and most promising in almost all countries, and the U.S., the second world market, is not an exception.
The most expensive model on this list is the Wrangler – from $28,000 in the USA. Next are the RAV4 and Rogue, both from $26,000 for a base model.
The Honda CR-V is slightly cheaper: from $25,000. The Chevy Equinox is the most affordable choice: from $24,000.
The Toyota RAV4 significantly outruns exceeding 300,000 sales. The Honda CR-V amounts 237,000 sold units, the rest of the five are ranged between 150,000 and 200,000 sales.
The TOP 10 also includes the Subaru Forester, Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, Jeep Cherokee and the Hyundai Tucson.
Overall sales of compact SUVs fell by 18% in Q1-Q3 2020 in the United States, although it remains the largest segment in the automotive market of the country.
Every fourth sold vehicle there is a compact crossover. This class is also the biggest in terms of number of offerings. Currently, 45 different models are available to Americans.
