Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In America - December 2016 & 2016 Year End

2017 Lexus RX450h F Sport
America's most popular luxury utility vehicle, the top-selling premium brand vehicle overall, sold more often in the U.S. in 2016 than at any point in its history. Year-over-year, Lexus RX volume jumped 9% to 109,435 units.

It's not as though the RX was light on competition. Lexus's own NX, not that much smaller than the RX, outsold all small luxury utility vehicles in 2016, narrowly edging the Acura RDX by 2523 sales. 

The RX also faced a new competitor from the typical top challenger: Cadillac. The SRX was replaced in 2016 by the Cadillac XT5. Combined sales of the SRX/XT5 fell 10% to 61,624 units.

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.
