Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In America - August 2016 YTD

2017 Infiniti QX30
The U.S. market hosted the arrival of a handful of new luxury utility vehicles in August 2016. Mercedes-Benz's front-wheel-drive architecture from the CLA and GLA now underpins the Infiniti QX30. The first 74 were sold in August. 

Maserati sold its first 91 Levantes, the brand's new Porsche Cayenne-fighting SUV. Levante pricing starts at a lofty $72,000.

We've included the Bentley Bentayga's first 223 sales with full-size luxury SUVs.

Not a single one of these three new utility vehicles is about to become a top seller. The Bentley is far too expensive. The Maserati Levante is, well, a Maserati. The Infiniti QX30 is a Mercedes-Benz without being a Mercedes-Benz. 

But premium utility vehicles are a booming sector. Why wouldn't Infiniti want to sell a new small entry? Sales of the current crop are up 27% this year.

Why wouldn't Maserati want to join the ranks of the sports-car-maker-turned-SUV-builders? Porsche now produces 60% of its U.S. sales with utility vehicles. 

Why wouldn't Bentley throw an SUV into the mix? Compatriot Jaguar just released its first SUV and the F-Pace already accounts for nearly six in ten Jaguar USA sales.

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.
