The smallest trio of German luxury crossovers combined for a 24% July increase worth an additional 1056. One size and price class up, big gains from the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Infiniti QX50, Land Rover Discovery Sport joined with the additions provided by all new models to provide an 18% category-wide improvement.
Yet another size and/or price class up, there were many noteworthy increases in July. Sales in the seventh month of 2016 were 146% stronger for the Volvo XC90 than in July 2015.
Audi Q7 volume jumped 20%. Land Rover’s LR4 and Range Rover Sport rose by 638 sales. Mercedes-Benz GLE sales continued to rise, as well, as did sales of America’s top-selling premium utility vehicle, the Lexus RX.
But at Cadillac, where the XT5’s replacement of the Cadillac SRX is slow in taking full effect – July XT5/SRX volume was down 7%. Both of Infiniti’s mid-range crossovers posted declines. Porsche reported a 28% Cayenne drop. And at BMW, the South Carolina-built X5 reported a 54% drop, the worst decline of any continuing volume nameplate in July.
