Cadillac SRX relinquished its spot as the segment leader while the baton is passed to its replacement, Cadillac XT5; however, Cadillac must hope sales of the latter pick up soon, as the combined sales of the two models were still 13 percent down on where the SRX was this time in 2015
Acura RDX became the new segment leader for the first half of 2016, but it may not last long in this position – the second-placed Mercedes-Benz GLC and third-placed Lexus NX were both less than 2,000 units behind in sales so far, and could easily overtake the Acura by the end of the year
BMW X3 and Infiniti QX50 both continued to attract more buyers despite their advancing ages, with sales up 32 percent for the BMW in the second quarter, and a remarkable 456 percent for the Infiniti (though from a low base)
Despite a nice 618 percent rise in sales so far this year compared to 2015, Land-Rover Discovery Sport actually had a pretty bad second quarter, selling 2,579 compared to 4,368 units in Q1 – so-so reviews may be hurting sales after the initial enthusiasm for the model has died down
Sales of Jaguar F-Pace are, ahem, gathering pace nicely, and while in overall so far this year it ranked second-to-last, it actually outsold both the Audi Allroad and BMW X4 in the second quarter, and will probably advance into the top 10 in the second half of the year
Note: Clicking on the model name opens the sales data page for that model; clicking year in the legend turns the display for that year on/off
