The NX led a category which surged to a 24% year-over-year improved, helped along by all-new players like, for example, the NX, and Land Rover’s Discovery Sport.

Yet even without the new players adding volume to the segment, small luxury SUV/CUV sales – including a trio of compact contenders from Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz – was up 3% last month. 

New rivals haven’t made it impossible for the Acura RDX, BMW X1, Range Rover Evoque, and Porsche Macan to record continual growth.

Bigger things will be expected from the X1, BMW’s smallest SAV, now that the all-new, second-generation X1 is arriving on Canadian shores. 

The newer model isn’t the rear-wheel-drive/AWD pseudo-performance wagon that the first X1 was, but it’s a roomier car that’ll still prove sufficiently athletic to most buyers.

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.
