If we subtract the BMW X3 from the equation, sales are actually up 10%. (The X3 was the class leader at this time last year.) But more than four in ten BMW SAV buyers are opting for the bigger, more costly X5 this year.
Meanwhile, sales of the Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque are down as Land Rover sells more LR4s and Range Rover Sports. The Mercedes-Benz GLK is down 13%; Mercedes-Benz’s bigger M-Class is up 26%. Sales of the Volvo XC60 are down slightly, as are sales of the XC70, but combined sales of the XC60, XC70, and new-to-Canada V60 are up 28%.
From the Acura MDX to the Porsche Cayenne, sales of luxury utility vehicles in the second table are up by more than 2000 units in 2014.
