SUVs and crossovers benefited most from Europe's first rise in annual sales since 2007. Combined sales of models ranging from the Nissan Qashqai to the Opel/Vauxhall Mokka to the BMW X5 increased 21 percent last year to more than 2.5 million units, according to data from JATO Dynamics. That rise easily outpaced the overall market's 5.3 percent growth to 12.8 million.
One out of every five car buyers in Europe chose an SUV or crossover last year, up from 17 percent in 2013.

Fiat will attack the SUV sector with the new 500X and the upcoming Nissan Qashqai-sized SUV. These models will be made profitable because they will share components with and be built alongside a pair of Jeep sister cars.
Additionally, the sophisticated platform underpinning the new 500X and Jeep Renegade can be scaled for use on the bigger Fiat and Jeep models.
Farther down the line, Fiat and Jeep may launch a truly baby SUV into the European market. The model would be around the size of a supermini, according to global Jeep boss Mike Manley. The move could result in today's Fiat Panda Cross being replaced by a pair of Fiat and Jeep SUV models.
