Obviously, SUV sales are much higher than passenger cars, even in the luxury-brand market.
- There are two models from Lexus, Acura, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz in the top ten.
- In the first half of 2020, light-truck sales fell by 18.3 percent.
- The Lexus RX is the best-selling luxury SUV in the country once again.
Despite the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic knocked the car industry to its knees, things are steadily picking up in dealerships. Sales were especially poor in the second quarter of 2020, with just a few nameplates posting positive results as compared to the same time in 2019. Light-truck sales, which include SUVs and pickup trucks, dropped 18.3 percent, but that’s nothing compared to passenger car sales, which fell 35.8%. Nonetheless, after the first six months of 2020, here are the most common luxury SUVs in the United States.
Here Are The Most Popular Luxury SUVs in the U.S
10- Cadillac XT5 (14,806 units)
The Cadillac XT5 is now in its fourth year of production, and the 2020 model year brings a slew of new features and enhancements. Despite being ranked 10th on this chart, sales fell by 43.9 percent in the first half of 2019.
9- Acura MDX (17,974 units)
The Acura MDX will be redesigned at some point in the future, but in the meantime, the midsize three-row crossover is selling well. In the first half of 2020, sales fell by 20.6 percent, significantly less than the overall light-truck average.
8- Audi Q5 (18,031 units)
The Audi Q5 is another model that has stayed in the top ten list of the most successful luxury SUVs in the United States, but sales have fallen by 43.7 percent in the first half of 2019. The SQ5 with performance improvements is included in the sales figures.
7- BMW X5 (19,155 units)
The BMW X5 has been redesigned for the 2019 model year and now comes with six- and eight-cylinder engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid option. There’s also the X5 M, which is a high-performance model. As compared to the same time last year, sales are down 21.6 percent.
6- BMW X3 (20,074 units)
On the list of most popular luxury SUVs in the United States, the BMW X3 has remained ahead of the X5. We claim this because revenue fell 36.7 percent in 2019 compared to the previous year.
5- Mercedes-Benz GLE (21,305 units)
The Mercedes-Benz GLE, which includes the Mercedes-AMG GLE43, GLE53, and GLE63 models, is currently the most common midsize luxury SUV in the United States. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, sales actually increased by 19.5 percent in the first half of 2020, which is unusual.
4- Mercedes-Benz GLC (22,560 units)
Despite a 33.5 percent decrease in sales, the Mercedes-Benz GLC remained at the top of the list of most successful luxury SUVs. The Mercedes-AMG GLC43 and GLC63 editions are, of course, included in the overall sales figure.
3- Lexus NX (22,725 units)
The Lexus NX, which was launched for the 2015 model year, has successfully established a customer base among buyers who think the RX is too big—or too costly. Just 15.4 percent of sales have dropped.
2- Acura RDX (22,750 units)
The Acura RDX saw its revenue plummet by 24.6 percent, but it still managed to ascend a couple of places on the list because its competitors posted lower figures. Not that it doesn’t have a right to be at the top.
1- Lexus RX (36,813 units)
The Lexus RX is once again tops among the most popular luxury SUVs in the United States, despite a 23.4% decrease in sales. It also outsold all luxury passenger cars—except one: the Tesla Model 3.
