Helped by a complete twelve months of selling time, the BMW X3 and Acura RDX appear as though their sales were decent in 2009. Indeed, Acura had a fairly good month in December. Take into account the shortened season of the Volvo XC60, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLK350. Now you see how different things could have been. Perhaps 2010 will bear this out; or perhaps the Canadian love of Acura will propel the RDX past the increasingly ubiquitous Mercedes-Benz GLK350.
One way or another, the GLK took off like a herd of turtles and never looked back. Based on personal experience only, an inordinate number of people are even choosing their red paint, not the most Benz-like of colours. Keep this fact in mind: though the Mercedes-Benz GLK doesn’t make a stand in The Good 12 Supersize v2.0 (and the Audi Q5 does), the GLK has a place in the heart of The Good Car Guy; as proven by the 100 Favourite Cars list. Moreover, the BMW X3 has an award to its discredit, The Bad 8 Supersize v2.0 welcomed back the X3 this year.
