Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In America – January 2014


2013 Lexus RX350 F Sport

No surprises here. Although U.S. auto sales slid back partway to 2012 levels in January, luxury SUVs and crossovers were selling more often, not less often.

Cars? Down. Pickup trucks? Down. Luxury utility vehicles? Not down.

The Audi Q5-led small luxury crossover class produced 6% gains thanks to gains from the Q5, Acura’s RDX, two BMWs, Infiniti’s renamed QX50, and the least costly Land Rover. Volvo XC60 sales plunged by 624 units, year-over-year, during the debut month for the V60, which attracted 322 buyers, incidentally.

Up a notch in size and/or price, the Lexus RX and Cadillac SRX lead the way, although the more costly Acura MDX, quite a bit more costly Mercedes-Benz ML and the substantially more costly BMW X5 put up very healthy figures. However, the M-Class’s figures were down compared with January 2013 and X5 sales were down 33%.

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.

    I know there is some old bias on here, but I think Buick should be on this list. Especially if vow is on. They are not the buicks of yesterday by any means. Ps I absolutely LOVE your site!
