Report: Crossovers and SUVs are more popular than sedans for first time

AutomotiveNews recently stumbled upon a survey by IHS Automotive, who discovered that Americans are buying more crossovers and SUVs than sedans.

According to the study, the crossover and SUV market now accounts for 36.5 percent of the US light-vehicle market while sedans trail behind at 35.4 percent. The study does only factor retail registrations through May of 2014. But either way, this doesn’t come to much of surprise–just take a look at what you see on the road every time you pop to the shops or head to work.

The SUV and mainly the crossover have been continuously hot topics as buyers seek ways to have only one car that does it all, rather than having multiple cars for various functions. Additionally, thanks to slight improvements with fuel economy and cost, the crossover has become even more popular. And the trend shows no sign of stopping.
