Our Take On The Small And Midsize Luxury SUVs Sales Numbers

Demand for small and midsize luxury SUVs increased by 7.3% year-on-year for January 2018, with a few nameplates making a big impact on the figures for the month.

Compact luxury SUV sub-segment, the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class takes the top spot ahead of the Lexus NX. The GLC-Class was Mercedes-Benz USA’s highest volume-selling vehicle in January, with 56.4% year-on-year growth.

For the Lexus NX, meanwhile, January 2018 was its best month of sales ever.

A Lexus tops the midsize luxury SUV sales chart for January too – the RX is top there with 22.1% year-on-year sales growth putting it head and shoulders above the rest of the midsize luxury SUV market.

The only sub-segment below not to grow its sales volume year-on-year is the subcompact luxury SUVs. Dips in sales for the BMW X1 and Infiniti QX30 have taken the wind out of this segment’s sales, with the X1 – usually the top-seller here – dropping to second after a 28.7% decrease in its sales year-on-year.

BMW previewed an X2 model at the North American International Auto Show earlier in the year, which may hint at why deliveries of X1 have dropped.
