After reporting only 114 sales of the Lexus LX570 five years ago, Toyota Canada is on track to sell more than 700 copies of its flagship SUV in calendar year 2016.
September 2016 marked the 11th consecutive month of year-over-year sales improvement for the LX570, a twin of the Toyota Land Cruiser not sold in Canada. LX volume jumped 738%, a gain of 59 units, to 67 sales in September.
Despite these impressive gains, the LX remains a small player in the Canadian large luxury SUV market. Cadillac Escalade sales were more than three times stronger in September; Mercedes-Benz GLS volume was more than four times stronger.
