Official figures from GM show that Chevrolet Equinox had its best Q1 ever, putting the model in fifth place in YTD rankings; our own estimates suggest that the model could have even outsold the suddenly-feeling-its-age Nissan Rogue in March, putting the American model in fourth place, by far its highest ever ranking
The compact models had a mixed March: while Honda Civic bounced back to record its first positive growth month this year, and the soon-to-be-replaced Nissan Sentra even snuck into the Top 10 for the first time, ever, after a great February Toyota Corolla sedan saw its sales collapse by almost a quarter during the transition to the new model, while our estimates suggest that Chevrolet Cruze dropped out of the Top 50 for the first time ever
A great March saw Jeep Grand Cherokee sales rise by a quarter, making the aged model’s performance a much better one than that of its much newer siblings, all of which saw sales fall in the double-digits: Wrangler (down 21%), Cherokee (down 23%), and Compass (down 13%)
Sales of both Ford Escape and Explorer fell by double digits, as customers await the already-shown by not-yet-available new models
Volkswagen Tiguan L saw its sales pass 10,000 for the first time, while its larger brother Atlas saw its sales pass 7,000 for the first time, suggesting both models have more potential still to grow their sales
By contrast, sales of the Mazda CX-5, which had its best-ever year in 2018, are already more than 12% year-to-date
Mitsubishi Outlander had a remarkable March, with sales up by 60%, allowing it to creep back sales it lost in January and February
Ram ProMaster has seen its sales double so far in 2019, a good performance, even if that means it still only sold a third as many units as its arch-rival, Ford Transit
Sales of the Nissan Murano have collapsed by almost half so far this year, despite a recent facelift
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross once again saw its sales rise more than threefold on this time last years, suggesting that last months’ sales rise was no fluke
Both new-for-March’19 models, BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class, did well, with the big Bavarian notching up more than 2,000 sales, while the small sedan from Stuttgart registered a more modest 890 sales
Kia Telluride exploded onto the market with over 5,000 sales in only its first full month on the market
By contrast, Jeep seems to be following a different, slower release strategy with the Gladiator, whose sales were only 43 in the model’s second month on the market
Sales of the new Ford Ranger and Honda Passport continue to ramp up, passing 4,000 and 2,500 for the first time, respectively
Audi Q8 saw its sales rise to almost 1,500 – almost matching the peak sales achieved by the BMW X6 in Dec’15
Sales of the new Genesis G70 continue to hover just below 1,000 barrier
