Growth Has Slowed, But Cadillac Is On Pace For Its
Fifth Consecutive Year Of Improved SRX Sales
Acura, Audi, and BMW all sold more than 3000 copies of their smallest utility vehicles in October 2013, the first time three small premium utilities have sold more on more than 3000 occasions since May.
RDX sales rose 25%, Q5 sales shot up 39%, and X1 volume jumped 60%, year-over-year.
Acura, Cadillac, and Lexus each sold more than 5000 copies – 7979 in the case of the Lexus – of America’s three best-selling premium brand utility vehicles. The RX, SRX, and MDX last accomplished this just two months ago.
In addition to the SUVs featured in GCBC’s large luxury SUV sales post, these premium brand utility vehicles generated 15% of SUV/CUV sales in the first ten months of 2013. Growth among the biggest and smallest is particularly healthy. Midsize/mid-priced utilities aren’t ascending as rapidly.
Pulled down by the BMW X6, Infiniti FX/QX70, Lincoln MKT, Volkswagen Touareg and the Acura MDX, sales of which have increased in three of the last four months, the segment is up just 3.7% in 2013. The overall U.S. auto market is up 8.2% this year.
