Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales Figures In America - May 2013 YTD

1997 Volvo V70XC CrossCountry
The 1997 Volvo V70 XC
The Volvo XC70, a favourite wagon at GoodCarBadCar (until the Volvo V60 arrives), posted its third consecutive May sales decline in 2013. XC70 sales fell consecutively every year from 2003 to 2009, perked up by 14% in 2010, and began another long slide in 2011. XC70 volume is down 8% this year.

Is the XC70 an SUV? GoodCarBadCar reports XC70 sales data here and also with cars, but emphasizes its luxury car status by listing it with all cars. Volvo sold 4.4 times as many XC60s as XC70s in May, and the very, very old XC90 still sells more often than the XC70, too. 50% of U.S. Volvo volume comes from the three XC models. Volvo brand sales in America are down 6% this year and in 2012 totalled less than half what Volvo accomplished in 2004.

On the brighter side, Infiniti USA reported its best JX35 sales month so far in May 2013. 37% of Infiniti sales in May were JX-derived; 57% were SUVs or crossovers. The biggest gain posted by any luxury-brand SUV belonged to the Porsche Cayenne. The doubling of Cayenne sales occurred as Boxster sales shot up 2113% and Cayman volume rose 1285%. Nevertheless, the Cayenne was worth 45% of Porsche USA sales in May, up from 41% a year ago.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Volkswagen Touareg and Volvo XC70 here but also with mainstream brand SUVs and midsize luxury cars, respectively... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
