That 7167-unit improvement compared with February 2014's results was powered in large part by new models (Q3, GLA, NX, MKC, Macan), the Acura RDX, and Volvo's XC60. 

A number of more costly, mostly larger luxury SUVs and crossovers posted February gains, as well. From the BMW X5's 42% jump to the Land Rover Range Rover Sport's 25% ascent, there's reason to believe that luxury SUVs don't need to be small (or large) to expand their market share.

But the rate of expansion in the premium arena is most easily located in a look at entry-level crossovers, particularly when we consider the age of some of the entries. Mercedes-Benz's GLK and the Audi Q5 have been around since 2009 and the second-gen BMW X3 is now operating in its fifth model year.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank luxury SUVs and crossovers any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

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.
