Whether you consider the Lexus RX to be small or midsize, a crossover or an SUV or a wagon, it sold really well in August 2012. RX sales jumped 52% year-over-year, it outsold the next-best-selling Lexus by 433 units, and it outsold the next-best-selling luxury utility by 187 units.

But the RX is generally popular, and with the new model now online, we’re going to see year-over-year increases for a while. August was the fourth straight. This isn’t news.

Through seven months, the Range Rover Sport accounted for 37% of all Land Rover sales. 51% of the Land Rovers sold in August, however, were Range Rover Sports. This doesn’t necessarily mean other Land Rovers sold especially rarely in August, although they did. It was the Evoque’s worst Canadian sales month so far. Range Rover Sport sales jumped 24% last month.
