Chart Of The Day: Luxury Crossovers In May
We like to think of TTAC as something of the thinking (wo)man’s car blog: sure, we’ll try to drive the hot cars, but we’ll be just as interested in their history, sales and cultural context as their 0-60 time. One of the ways we like to help contextualize these, the most emotional artifacts of our material culture, is by breaking them down into their unforgiving sales numbers. In addition to our now-normal monthly binge of sales graphs, we will try to bring you one graph per day, illustrating a previously unexplored view of the market for automobiles. Today, we start with Luxury Crossovers, a segment invented by its current chapion, the Lexus RX.

The Acura MDX, Audi Q7, and Buick Enclave are all 'luxury crossovers.' Is this a sales chart for 'entry luxury crossovers'? I suppose that would explain why the Mercury Mariner is there.
We sold 15 Mazda CX-9 Grand Tourings last month. Average transaction price around 37K. Rumor has that we destroyed the MDX, RDX, EX, FX, etc. But not the Rx...that's a strong product.
Most sales improvement from 2009 to 2010: Cadillac SRX.
Would seem to me that Ford is killing the wrong luxo brand. Sales-wise, you know. Kinda like when GM killed Olds. It was outselling Buick over the course of the final year of its existance.
