In addition to the SUVs featured in GCBC’s large luxury SUV sales post, these premium brand utility vehicles generated 15% of SUV/CUV sales in the first ten months of 2013. Growth among the biggest and smallest is particularly healthy. Midsize/mid-priced utilities aren’t ascending as rapidly. 

Pulled down by the BMW X6, Infiniti FX/QX70, Lincoln MKT, Volkswagen Touareg and the Acura MDX, sales of which have increased in three of the last four months, the segment is up just 3.7% in 2013. The overall U.S. auto market is up 8.2% this year.

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.
