13. Mazda CX-5
2018 Sales: 81,012
Vs. 2017: +41.9%
Redesigned for the 2017 model year, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 continues to maintain strong pace with a 42 percent increase in sales for the first half of 2018. The CX-5 moved up to No. 13 in the first quarter of 2018 after finishing 2017 at No. 16, based on a 75 percent increase for the first quarter and a 90 percent increase for March year-over year. Already the top-selling model in Mazda’s lineup, the 2018 CX-5 went on sale early last year and finished 2017 with a 13.7 percent increase for the full year — an impressive number since 2016 was already the best sales year for CX-5 since its debut as a 2012 model. Adopting the styling of the larger CX-9, the CX-5 is refined in nearly every way, with a revised chassis, an updated SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter gasoline engine, a new interior design and many available features. The new CX-5 is the first Mazda to feature G-Vectoring Control, which enhances vehicle responsiveness and stability while reducing sideways sliding of the occupants for a more comfortable ride.
