Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In America – July 2014 YTD


2015 BMW X4 red

With respective year-over-year sales gains of 14% and 13%, the Lexus RX and Acura MDX were the major players in America’s luxury crossover segment in July 2014. MDX sales are up by 13,182 units year-to-date, a pleasant increase for a brand that’s seen sales in its changing car division dwindle and the RDX slide 1%.

read 407 X6 sales, as per BMW’s correction.

Meanwhile, Lexus RX sales are up by 2667 units so far this year. The NX, arriving soon, will undercut the RX in price but should cater to a bit of a different buyer. 

BMW USA sold their first 262 X4s in July. It’s hard to imagine that the X4 will be anything but an X6-like addition to the X3 range, as the X6 is to the X5. BMW sells eight X5s for every X6. July was just the beginning, but BMW sold six X3s for every X4. 

The Lincoln MKC arrived in late May but put up its first meaningful numbers in July, with 1534 sales. Porsche sold 952 Macans, meaning sales at Porsche’s utility vehicle range jumped 60% in July 2014. 

These luxury brand utility vehicles are the key part of premium auto growth in America. Evidence of that can clearly be seen in the smaller section’s total, where sales grew 10%, or 1816 units, compared with July 2013. This isn’t just down to the addition of the MKC and Macan. And even if it was, that would still suggest increased demand in the vehicle category.

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. This explains you’ll see the XC70 listed with luxury cars as well as with SUVs and crossovers and the Touareg with luxury SUVs and mainstream SUVs… 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. BMW corrected X6 numbers for July at the beginning of September.
