The GLA ranks just 87th among utility vehicles on year-to-date terms, with just one month under its belt compared with the nine of most other players. Other new entries in the small premium crossover category include the 85th and 86th-ranked Audi Q3 and BMW X4.

* Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
^ Escalade here does not include sales of the EXT, which is shown with pickup trucks.
Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Paceman and Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it's with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type's name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can't be squeezed through a round hole. Tribute volume had previously been reported by Mazda USA as a solitary unit in April, but Mazda has since taken away that sale.

  1. My girlfriend lease ends in a year and she wants me to keep my Encore AWD when the lease is up right before hers. I agree for commuting, hauling the dogs, or just picking the parents up for dinner the Encore doesn't all.

    Not sure why you don't think drives well as it best the CUV class benchmark for handling, Mazda .CX-5, and matches it cargo holding folding the front passenger seat down. The Encore actually allot of fun shipping into a parking place, sitting up high.

    Keeping the speedometer at 60 mph for my 120 mile daily commute I was able to see 39 mpg oover a tank of gas. Quite impressive considering is AWD.

  2. The TLX just may be Acura's hail Mary pass for passenger production. They definitely cannot come into near-luxury segment with half baked, engineered cars lime the ILX.

  3. GCBC's comment forum used to include these lines of text: "Please stay on topic. Feel free to argue and debate, but stay friendly and do not get personal. Keep in mind, kids read this site."


    A number of months ago we felt this was no longer required, but we do kindly ask that the tone of this particular conversation be elevated.

  4. Yes, I can understand it's so completely unreasonable of me to suspect the falling market share of Buick and it's shifting reliance on China sales is something other people might admit to.

  5. Your pricing seems about 10k high.
