Nissan Rogue Sitting Atop SUV And Crossover Sales In 2017

The Nissan Rogue is on track to finish 2017 as America’s top-selling SUV/crossover, potentially snatching the title away from the Honda CR-V that has led the segment for five years.

In the first six months of the year, Nissan has sold a total of 195,689 units of the Rogue, an 8,433 edge over the Honda CR-V and also enough to put the Rogue ahead of other rivals including the Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, Ford Explorer, Chevrolet Equinox and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

In June, Nissan claims to have sold 34,349 Rogue vehicles in the U.S., a 17 per cent increase over June 2016 and comfortably more than the CR-V. Such a figure also represents the third month the Rogue has topped SUV and crossover sales in 2017.

A key reason why the Nissan Rogue enjoyed such a fruitful June is the fact that it is no longer doing battle with the CR-V alone. Instead, the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, America’s version of the Qashqai, joined it on the market six weeks ago and Nissan has clumped its sales figures together with those of the standard Rogue, rather than breaking down sales of the Rogue and Rogue Sport individually.

    At least a decent/inoffensive looking vehicle at the top. RAV4s are vomit inducing.

  • ck

    Another key reason for the top sales spot is the huge number of them going into rental fleets which is something Honda won’t do.

    • seriously

      yeah maybe check that ignorance at the door you can get a honda at a rental lot

    This has become the cliche in the states, but I wouldn’t rule out a Rogue Sport with a manual like they offer in other countries. I know it’s a moot issue, but if MINI can charge full price for a customized car, then why haven’t other car manufacturers caught onto this and offered an option to customers in the states to pay full price for a special order manual trans version fully-loaded only? They’re already being made with manuals elsewhere, so it seems like a no-brainer untapped niche market.

    Most of Nissan’s new cars are hideous but the Rogue pretty nice looking.

    Very sad news

  • Unlike some commenters, I find the Rogue among the best looking crossovers in its segment; its main competitors look over-styled and ugly (RAV4, CR-V, Escape (Ford messed up the refresh), Cherokee); though some like the Mazda CX-5 and Hyundai Tucson look clean and stylish, they are distant in the sales charts.
    Among the ones to fight well the Japanese trio is the new Chevy Equinox and, maybe, Buick Envision (not so sure about the GMC Terrain).
