SUVs Out-sale Sedans in U.S

SUVs Out-sale Sedans in U.S

07/17/2014


Sport utility vehicles have overtaken sedans in U.S. market share, aided by more fuel-efficient, carlike crossover models, IHS Automotive said.

SUVs, including crossovers, accounted for 36.5 percent of U.S. new-vehicle registrations this year through May, compared with 35.4 percent for sedans, the IHS Inc. (IHS) unit said today in a statement. Sedans, which held the top spot for decades, had led 36.6 percent to 33.9 percent a year earlier, IHS said.

Compact and mid-sized crossover SUVs such as Ford Motor Co.’s Escape, Toyota Motor Corp.’s RAV4 and Nissan Motor Co.’s Rogue have gained in popularity in the past several years. Such models are smaller and use less fuel than traditional truck-based SUVs and are built on car-style unibody underpinnings.

“It’s not that sedans have become unpopular,” Tom Libby, a Southfield, Michigan-based analyst at IHS, said in an interview. “It’s just that CUVs have really grown. They drive like cars, but they have higher positioning, the option for four-wheel drive and better fuel economy. There’s more space for seating. It’s easy to see why they’ve taken off in popularity.”
