Canada Luxury SUV And Crossover Sales - February 2013

2013 Land Rover Range Rover Sport dirt road
Land Rover Is Selling More Range Rover Sports Than Ever, 
And Now They're Replacing It, And It Will Sell More Frequently
BMW Canada sold 667 X1s and X3s in February 2012. Sales of these two smaller luxury crossovers grew 3% in February 2013, but BMW accomplished this improvement with a very different approach than in the prior year. X1 sales plunged 64%. X3 sales more than doubled.

No premium brand SUV or crossover sold more often last month than the BMW X3, although it trails the Audi Q5 by 71 units through two months; and the Lexus RX by 40.

How mainstream are these small premium utilities? Consider the X3's February 2013 performance: it outsold the Ford Explorer, Dodge Dart, Volkswagen Passat, Subaru Outback, and Kia Soul last month.

Move up a notch to spot vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, Porsche's Cayenne, and BMW's own X5, which are by no means unpopular. Sales of the ML and X5 plunged in February, however, and are down sharply through two months. Porsche Canada has reported nine consecutive months of year-over-year Cayenne sales increases. The Cayenne was tied with the Scion FR-S as Canada's 141st-best-selling vehicle through the first 59 days of this year, outselling more than 100 different nameplates.

  1. FYI......The Lexus RX and Cadillac SRX are on both the Small Luxury SUVs and Midsize Luxury SUV lists. I believe they are both Midsize.

  2. So the asterisks suggest. Because people have differing opinions on where the RX and SRX fit - sometimes priced like smaller utilities but sized not unlike slightly larger midsizers - we show them in both charts, just as we do with the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, and many other vehicles. More information is better information. Displaying vehicles in multiple zones only allows for more comparisons. And for those who don't care about specific segmentation, there's always the All Vehicle Rankings (All Vehicles Ranked By February 2013 & YTD Canadian Sales). "Small", "Midsize", and "Large" aren't adequate segment titles, as large inexpensive vehicles may compare better with small expensive vehicles than large expensive vehicles, if you catch my drift. But the titles are the most adequate that I've come across, thus far.
