The crossover crazy is in full swing and Honda CR-V is reaping its benefits by printing yet another record number of sales in America, rising 1.4 percent over preceding year, and ranking second only behind Toyota RAV4 in SUV market.
After the end of troubling economic recession in 2008 that profoundly affected automotive industry, Honda CR-V sales have been in a continuous uptrend, and only saw a small hiccup in 2013 when sales dropped from 311,069 to 308,454.

Even with almost nonstop growth, Honda CR-V failed to hold its position as number one selling SUV and was dethroned by Toyota RAV 4 in 2017 when its sales rose by 16 percent to 407,594 vehicles. It was actually knocked off by two positions to 3rd place as Nissan Rogue sales also jumped by 22 percent to 403,465 units in 2017, but recovered to 2nd spot in 2019 when Rogue sales declined by 15 percent to 350,447 units. RAV4 benefited with a stunning leap of 5 percent in sales to 448,068 vehicles in 2019.
