2019 U.S Small Luxury Car Sales Analysis

Report Updated: With June 2019 Data on July 2nd 2019

Small luxury car sales are having a bit of a hard time recently. The segment didn’t have a good month. There were only six models that didn’t see sales drop over this time last year.

When you look at the YTD numbers it’s more of the same. Only four models YTD have managed to escape sales drops and two of them are new models with no historic data to compare them to.

For the month the segment as a whole was down over 6,000 units. When you look YTD, you’ll notice that the segment was down roughly 39,000 units. This is a trend we expect to continue as more people turn to SUVs over cars.
