After dropping below the 1,000-vehicles-a-month mark in April and May, sales of the Land Rover Discovery Sport climbed again in July. The Compact Luxury SUV outsold the company’s ageing Range Rover Evoque for the third month in a row.
Subcompact and Compact Luxury SUVs continue to show strong growth; these sectors are 12.5 and 10.8% ahead of 2016 figures to date despite slowing sales in the wider industry.
Competition from more premium brands has led Volkswagen to announce the removal of the Touareg from the US market in July. Sales jumped up last month, though YTD figures are far adrift of 2016, which was hardly a bumper year for the Touareg itself. People seeking a high-riding SUV with a VW badge on the front will have the smaller Tiguan as an option.
