Non-Macan/MKC/X4 sales were up 1.6% in October 2014 despite the fact that these new utility vehicles – plus the smaller Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA – were attempting to steal sales. 

They undoubtedly did, but the market for these vehicles is expanding at such a rate that slowdowns were felt by very few of the established small luxury crossover nameplates. The Acura RDX, Audi Q5, BMW X3, Infiniti QX50, and Land Rover LR2 all posted improved Canadian sales both in October and during the first ten months of 2014.

The Q5, even with 345 buyers heading the Q3’s way, still rose 4% to 772 units. Year-to-date, no premium brand SUV/crossover has sold as often as the Q5, though Lexus’s RX comes close. We’ll see soon if increased RX pricing and the NX, yet to arrive, sitting below it will harm RX volume.

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.
