U.S. sales figures for the vast majority of smallerish luxury utility vehicles in July 2012 were significantly better than they were a year ago in July 2011. An all-new version propelled the Acura RDX to a 142% increase. Volvo XC60 sales jumped 73%. Sales of the outdated Land Rover LR2 rose 33%. And the class-leading Cadillac SRX (up 19%) and Lexus RX (up 35%) each did far better than simply keep pace with the market’s 9% improvement.

Acura also sold more MDX crossovers this July than last. Audi sold more Q5s and Q7s. BMW X3 sales increased slightly, as did sales of Land Rover’s Range Rover Sport. The Lincoln MKT posted a notable improvement. Sales of the Mercedes-Benz GLK and Volkswagen Touareg also improved, by 252 and 218 units, respectively.
