Midsize luxury SUV sales in Canada looked good for the month of December, but not so great for 2019. The segment was down for the year overall.
When you look at just the month of December, the segment was up slightly, by only about 40 sales. When you look at the year as a whole, the segment was actually down by about 2,600 units. That’s not a wild amount, but it is a notable downward shift.
The Lexus RX led the way in terms of overall sales. It did so by a notable margin, though its sales were down for the year. The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class was in second place, but its sales dropped even more noticeably than the RX’s did. The BMW X5 came in third place and actually saw nearly a 10 percent rise in sales for the year.
We would expect sales to continue on their current trajectory in 2020. The segment will likely be down slightly, at least for the first few months of 2020.
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.
