BMW SUVs rule the luxury roost in April

BMW solidified its position as top luxury SUV producer, following a month in which two of its SUVs, the X5 and X3, topped their respective charts.

For large SUVs the X5 went top of the chart by a landslide, comprehensively beating the Toyota Land Cruiser 200 in a distant second place. The X5 managed to amess a sales figure of 143 units, followed by the 200 on 89 units.

The Range Rover/RR Sport takes third place on 73 units, while the Toyota Prado goes fourth on 68 units. Land Rover’s formidable Discovery sold 33 units last month, while Volkswagen’s Touareg managed 28 units.

Volvo’s XC90 goes seventh with 24 units sold, the same amount as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. A solitary unit behind these two SUVs sits the Jaguar F-Pace who makes its return to the top following its exclusion in March 2019.

The Lexus LX completes the top ten on 19 units.

X3 looking mighty fine

The BMW X3 put some clear space between it and the Volvo XC60 at the end of April 2019. The BMW found favour with 170 new owners, more than double of the 80 the XC60 could acquire.

Audi’s popular Q5 sold 71 units, while both the BMW X4 and Range Rover Evoque managed 68 units.

In sixth place is the Volvo XC40 on 29 units, followed by the Jaguar E-Pace on 25 units. Land Rover’s Discovery Sport acquired a sales figure of 21 units in eighth place.

Two Lexus models, the UX and NX, round out the top ten with 17 and 11 units, respectively.
