Small And Midsize Luxury Cars Sales In America – July 2017


 
Despite strong growth for the Audi A5, the BMW 4-Series continues to outsell it by around 2.5x.
 

The Infiniti Q50 and Q60 both showed signs of sales levelling out in July. The Q50 is now almost 1,000 units behind last year’s YTD sales, while the Q60 shows healthy growth since its introduction. 

In July, the Lexus ES had its best month in the US since December 2015, and far and away its best month of 2017. It remains 5,000 units behind this point in 2016, though a new model based on Toyota’s New Global Architecture – the same basic tech as underpins the current Prius – is due for release in 2018.

^ A4 includes Allroad, without which A4 sales were 3022 in June; 2017 YTD.
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 why you’ll see the Acura ILX here but also with mainstream cars like the Buick Verano, too, and the Audi A5 is also displayed with coupes and convertibles… because readers have wanted it both ways. Hyundai USA, not GoodCarBadCar, chooses to combine sales figures for the Genesis sedan and Genesis Coupe, forcing us to include the Genesis with volume-brand cars on pricing grounds before we even get to the “brand status” issue. The K900, Equus, and XTS are here not because of their size but because of their price points, their lack of direct comparability with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
