One size class up the ladder, the Acura RDX-led compact luxury SUV/crossover jumped 12% in February 2017, outpacing the SUV/crossover market at large. RDX rivals – Audi Q5, BMW X3, Lincoln MKC – are all growing at a faster rate, though RDX volume is up 5% so far this year.

The still-fresh Volvo XC90 has faced rapidly declining volume as supply diminishes. Volvo plans to have more XC90s by summer. The Audi Q7, a prime XC90 competitor, continues to produce huge year-over-year U.S. sales gains. Q7 sales jumped 50% in February 2017 to 2477 units. That’s well back of the Acura MDX and BMW X5 but well ahead of the 899-unit February average Audi produced over the last seven years.

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.
