Acura's MDX didn't fare quite so well in March or through the first four months of 2016. Year-to-date, MDX volume is down 14%. Sales of its Honda sibling, the Pilot, are down 17% this year. Nevertheless, no three-row premium brand utility in America sells more often than the MDX. 

No premium utility vehicle of any sort sells more often than the Lexus RX, America's top-selling premium brand vehicle overall. April RX sales jumped 29%, a gain of nearly 2000 sales, year-over-year.

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.
