Sales barely grow as performance of new BMW X3, BMW X4 and Audi Q5 is dampened by sales declines elsewhere
Sales in the US Premium Mid-sized SUV segment rose by 0.9% to 256,891 in the first half of 2019, a considerably weaker performance than the 20.4% growth the segment experienced in 2018. In fact, with only the new Lincoln Corsair (successor to the MKC) on the immediate horizon, it seems possible the segment will experience its first decline since 2008.

This segment must be one of the most competitive out there, will the top three models all selling within 5% of one another, while the top six are separated in sales by less than 20%
After losing the segment leadership battle to the Audi Q5 in 2018, the facelifted Mercedes-Benz GLC took the sales lead over the surging BMW X3 and the Q5 by the skin of its teeth
Unlike its smaller brother which entered the Top 3 in its segment, Volvo XC60 seems to have already reached the height of its potential in seventh, with sales falling by 9% in the second quarter
Most of the other models in the segment experienced mild sales rises or declines, the only exceptions being the 11% sales increase of the facelifted Land Rover Discovery Sport, and the doubling of sales of the new BMW X4
