Thanks in small part to a new wagon version, Acura TSX sales were up 55.7% in December. But the 1467-unit bump from December 2009 includes just 126 wagons, so Acura clearly found a way to seriously improve TSX sedan sales, as well.
Another vehicle nameplate with a new model helping out the percentage gains was the Infiniti G. The 2011 Infiniti G25, a member of 2011’s The Good 12, helped boost G sedan sales from 3541 to 5596 in December. The sedan share alone tops the G’s overall total from last year. When the G37 coupe’s 1477 sales are added into the mix, Infiniti G sales were up 37% from last December.
On the other side of the ledger, in preparation for the Volvo V60, V70 sales dropped 95.7% to 7. Lincoln MKS sales fell 33.2%. Jaguar XF sales were down 51.7%. Curiously – though at first thought you wouldn’t believe the XF and 2011 Jaguar XJ were competitors – as the XF lost 524 sales from last December, the XJ gained 516.
