The Premium Compact SUV segment grew by 40% compared to the period Q1-Q3 in 2014, thanks mainly to the two models that entered the market roughly a year ago: Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q3.
Mercedes-Benz GLA remains the segment leader, widening the gap to the 2nd-placed Mini Countryman. It is clear that consumers like the (barely) jacked-up hatchback model, which bodes well for the even less rugged Infiniti QX30
The other new entrant and distant leader of the Premium Compact SUV segment in Europe, Audi Q3, hasn’t faired nearly as well as the Mercedes-Benz in the market, though part of this may be because it’s been around in Europe since 2011
