Small premium crossovers were collectively up 15% compared with August 2013. Setting aside the four utility vehicle nameplates which weren't on sale at this stage a year ago, sales of the continuing nameplates were down 3%. 

In other words, the segment grew last month, though partially at the expense of established vehicles like the RDX, Q5, X1, X3, and Range Rover Evoque. 

So far this year, sales of these small luxury crossovers are up 14.5%. Without the Q3, X4, MKC, and Macan, sales are up 7.5%.

Bigger and/or more costly luxury utility vehicles, of which there are many more on offer at this moment, are significantly more common. Combined, the Lexus RX, Acura MDX, and Cadillac SRX outsold the whole small premium segment. Granted, those are three of the more value-priced big brothers.

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.

    Very interesting stuff...do you create your own segmentation?

    I have a 14. I hate the seats. The bars stick out on the back and it is extremely uncomfortable. The dealer sees the issue and is in denial. It is a craftsmanship thing. We will see if they fix it. The back squeaks something awful like it is an old car too. The a/c won't come on in auto. I think that a tahoe would have been a better buy for sure.

  3. Buick Verano is going to not double ILX sales of 2013, but triple the little Acura.
