3. Honda CR-V
2018 Sales: 179,588
Vs. 2017: -4.4%
Honda’s CR-V finished 2016 as the best-selling SUV in America, but despite a redesign for 2017, a sales increase of nearly 6 percent and a new annual sales record, it dropped to the No. 3 position at the end of 2017 against strong competition. The CR-V continued to struggle in the first quarter of 2018, dropping to the No. 4 position, but since then second quarter sales have been up 4.4 percent over the second quarter of 2017, moving the small SUV back to No. 3 at the six-month mark. Redesigned for the 2017 model year, the fifth-generation CR-V continues to be Honda’s top-selling model in the U.S. market, with more than 4.2 million sold since its introduction in 1997. The CR-V offers consumers a comfortable, small crossover with great utility and excellent fuel economy. In fact, CR-V’s 2.4-liter 185-horsepower engine teamed with a new continuously variable transmission makes it one of the most fuel-efficient crossovers on the market.
