Our Take On The Small and Midsize Luxury SUV Sales Numbers

Premium small and midsize SUVs and crossovers continued to sell well through the second month of 2018, with only midsize luxury SUVs failing to post growth in February.

20% more subcompact luxury SUVs sold this February than last, pushing the segment into growth year-to-date after January’s figures fell behind as the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class dragged its heels. 4.3% more subcompact luxury SUVs were sold in Canada in the first one sixth of this year than last.

Compact premium SUV sales grew at an even faster rate; year-on-year the segment grew by 25% for February, and year-to-date the segment is up 29.6%.

Tellingly, small premium SUVs have outsold small premium passenger cars in both months of 2018 so far, with the gap year-to-date now standing at over 1200 units.

The Audi Q5 has helped there, with its 72.1% growth year-to-date contributing 703 sales to the segment total for the first two months. The BMW X3 has also added 627 sales to that year-to-date total in second.

While the GLE-Class Mercedes added 153 sales to the total sales in the midsize premium SUV end of things, next three top-sellers in the market the Lexus RX, BMW X5 and Cadillac XT5 were down almost twice that volume between them, pulling the rest of the segment with them.

Two months in a row the midsize segment has been down in 2018, while small and subcompact luxury SUVs have grown. Perhaps the value proposition offered by the smaller end of the market is tempting buyers away from the larger investment in a bigger vehicle they may only use the full capacity of once in a blue moon?
