US – Small Luxury SUV Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The small luxury SUV segment in the U.S. managed to have a good month of July. The segment was up roughly 1,600 units for the month. When you look YTD, though, you can see that the segment has struggled this year. It’s down about 8,900 sales from last year.

The fact that the segment had a good month is somewhat surprising. If you look at the previous quarter of sales, it’s clear that the segment has been down for some time. July has proved to be a good month for small luxury SUVs, and we wonder if this marks a shift that will continue into future months.

At this time, it’s a little tough to tell. If the next couple of months prove to have similar results, the segment could possibly turn things around before the year ends.

We will report July 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Thursday, August 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
