2012 Honda CR-V: Strong Sales

October 10, 2013

2012 Honda CR-V

Last month, the Ford Escape was the best-selling SUV in the land, with sales of 22,607 units. The Honda CR-V was very close behind, selling 21,439 units.

Year to date, the CR-V has a slight lead on the Escape, and seems set to hold on to the title of "best-selling SUV" that it nabbed in 2013. Honda sold 229,082 CR-V models in the first 10 months of 2013, while Ford sold 228,290 Escape models.

Smaller SUVs like these are popular with certain market segments, due to their versatility and utility. The CR-V handles these responsibilities especially well. It offers lots of room within the cabin while boasting the sort of manageable footprint that makes it easy to maneuver and pleasant to drive.
