Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In America - January 2017

2017 Porsche Macan
Despite tumbling 21% to a four-year low of "only" 5520 units, the Lexus RX was still America's top-selling premium brand utility vehicle in January 2017. The RX was by no means the only Lexus to report rapidly declining sales.

U.S. SUV/Crossover Sales By Model - January 2017


Not since January 2012 have Lexus sales fallen so low. Every nameplate in the range sold less often in January 2017 than in January 2016. Lexus blames a terrific December for eating into January inventory. Elsewhere, numerous luxury SUVs reported big year-over-year improvements as SUVs outsold passenger cars by a 19% margin. 

Subcompact premium utilities rose 14% thanks to a boost from the GLA-based Infiniti QX30 plus 31% and 21% gains, respectively, for the Audi Q3 and segment-leading BMW X1.

Compact luxury crossover sales rose 23% because of huge upticks from the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Land Rover Discovery Sport, and Porsche Macan.

The Infiniti QX70, Land Rover Range Rover Sport, and Lincoln MKX all grew by more than 30%. Among full-size luxury SUVs, the Infiniti QX80 and Mercedes-Benz GLS did so, as well.

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.
