Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In America – April 2017


2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Despite losing one-tenth of its sales, year-over-year, the Lexus RX is still America’s best-selling SUV/crossover through the first one-third of 2017.

By a wide margin.

The RX has already collected 29,480 U.S. sales in 2017. It’s likely that only 15 or 16 of its premium brand alternatives will generate that many sales over the entire course of the year.

Indeed, while the RX is by far the most common premium utility vehicle in 2017, it’s clearly not gaining momentum. 

The fastest-growing luxury SUVs in America: Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, Infiniti QX70, BMW X3, and Porsche Macan.

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.
