The X1, Audi Q3, and better-selling Mercedes-Benz GLA combined to quadruple the lonely X1’s total from one year ago.

At the same time, after what was a difficult first half for the BMW X3, the X1’s bigger brother, sales jumped 50% in July. U.S. sales of the X4 also increased, as did sales of the big daddy, the X5.

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.
