TOP 5 Best-selling SUVs*

1 MAZDA CX-5

19,013 The only SUV to regularly make it into the list of top 10 sellers, and with good reason. Great dynamics and grunty diesel option add to CX-5's all-round value.

2 HYUNDA iX35/ TUCSON

14,947 The ix35 was a sales winner, which makes you wonder why Hyundai changed the name for its far more impressive replacement.

3 TOYOTA RAV4

13,782 One of the first and still one of the most popular, the RAV4 doesn't excel in any area besides sales, but it makes for sensible buying.

4 NISSAN X-TRAIL

12,900 Sharp deals and a seven-seat option make the smooth, refined X-Trail a popular choice. Newgeneration CVT transmission works well, too.

5 TOYOTA PRADO

11,446 The most popular of all the serious offroaders, the Toyota Prado continues to be a hit with families and outback trekkers.
