32% of the Minis sold in the United States in March 2013 were tall. After falling 8.7% a year ago, Countryman sales rose 11.5% last month. Mini USA also sold the first 169 Pacemans in March.
From a volume perspective, 1930 Mini crossover sales compare unfavourably with nothing but premium utility vehicles. From a money-making perspective, however, the Countryman and Paceman should be accomplishing more for Mini than the average tall city-sized car.
With its highest-volume month ever, the Ford Escape sold as often as the Jeep Patriot, Dodge Journey, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Mazda CX-5 combined. Well, actually, those four crossovers outsold the Escape by a solitary unit.
CX-5 sales nearly doubled, and Mazda sold more than in any prior month. Subaru posted its highest XV Crosstrek sales month yet, as well. Some Honda dealer some place sold an Element.
Jeep sold more Wranglers than in any month since 2007. Nissan sold 936 more Xterras in March than in the previous two months. Meanwhile, Kia Sportage sales have fallen in 15 consecutive months.
