The Mid-sized SUV segment grew by 9% compared to the Q1-Q3 period in 2014, faster than the car market overall (5% growth).

Highlights:

  • Ford Explorer remains the market leader by a wider margin, with sales up by 29% in Q3

  • Ford Flex is the only other model that remains on sale to have lost sales compare to the Q1-Q3 2014, though in this case this is because the new model is around the corner
