The X1's decline occurred as Audi and Mercedes-Benz now offer direct competitors. The Q3 and GLA weren't on sale at this time a year ago.

The X3's March decline was tempered somewhat by 599 sales of the X4, a less practical and more expensive X3 offshoot that posted its second-best month so far in its nine-month lifespan. U.S. sales of the larger BMW X5 and BMW X6 jumped 11% to 4975 units.

America's top-selling premium brand utility vehicle is the Lexus RX, a vehicle which was just revealed as an all-new 2016 model at the New York Auto Show. RX sales haven't slowed despite the addition of the smaller NX in Lexus's crossover lineup.

* indicates a vehicle which is also shown in another GCBC segment breakdown
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.
