Cars? Down. Pickup trucks? Down. Luxury utility vehicles? Not down.
The Audi Q5-led small luxury crossover class produced 6% gains thanks to gains from the Q5, Acura’s RDX, two BMWs, Infiniti’s renamed QX50, and the least costly Land Rover. Volvo XC60 sales plunged by 624 units, year-over-year, during the debut month for the V60, which attracted 322 buyers, incidentally.
Up a notch in size and/or price, the Lexus RX and Cadillac SRX lead the way, although the more costly Acura MDX, quite a bit more costly Mercedes-Benz ML and the substantially more costly BMW X5 put up very healthy figures. However, the M-Class’s figures were down compared with January 2013 and X5 sales were down 33%.
