It’s another outstanding month for the Honda CR-V, down one rank on last month to #5 but further improving its market share to 4.2% thanks to 1,779 sales. But the hero of the month is the new generation Toyota RAV4, already in sale in the country and  taking the nameplate from a bleak 6 sales in December to 1,754 units and 4.1% this month. Notice also the Ford Focus up 3 spots to #8.
