16. Subaru Crosstrek
2018 Sales: 74,475
Vs. 2017: +71.1%
Subaru’s redesigned 2018 Crosstrek moved into the top 20 best-selling SUVs at No. 17 for the first quarter of 2018 and continued to climb, finishing the first half of 2018 as the No. 16 best-selling SUV. Sales for the first half of 2018 are up 71 percent compared to the same period for the previous year, boosted by an 84 percent increase for June year-over-year. The new 2018 Crosstrek is longer and wider than the previous model, with new styling that features the familiar hexagonal grille, “hawk-eye” headlights and an impressive 8.7-inches of ground clearance. Built on an all-new global platform that significantly enhances body and chassis rigidity and strength, the Crosstrek receives suspension improvements, a lower center of gravity and more responsive steering to improve driving dynamics. Inside, the seats have been updated, there’s a redesigned steering wheel and more space is available for passengers and cargo. The infotainment system features an 8-inch touchscreen display and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are standard. Crosstrek is powered by a revised 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Boxer engine producing 152 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque — a slight increase compared to the outgoing model.
