Small luxury SUV sales in the U.S. looked pretty good this past year. In 2019, the segment was up. It wasn’t up a lot, but a small gain is better than no gain at all. When you look at just the month of December, you’ll see that the segment struggled a little bit, but it wasn’t by much.
For the month of December, the segment saw sales drop by about 500 units. When you look at the year as a whole, it’s clear that the segment did pretty well. It was up by about 12,000 units.
Leading the way in terms of overall sales was the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. It was up nearly four percent for the year, though it struggled in December. The Audi Q5 was next in line and then the Lexus LX. Both the Audi and Lexus suffered losses for the year.
There were honestly more vehicles that saw sales drop than saw sales go up. Three vehicles basically carried the segment, the Cadillac XT4, Volvo XC40, and the Lexus UX. It will be interesting to see what happens with these models specifically in the new year.
