ALL HAIL THE BODACIOUS RIDE
“For the first time ever, luxury SUVs have outsold luxury cars thus far in 2016. The rise of the luxury SUV mirrors the surging popularity of utilities across the automotive market but has also shaken up the typically predictable luxury landscape,” notes a new market report from Edmunds.com, an auto consumer site that predicts these bodacious rides will account for 60 percent of the luxury market next year.
“Jaguar and Volvo are enjoying the most gains, thanks to the popularity of the F-Pace and XC90. Jaguar’s overall sales were up more than 81 percent, while Volvo’s overall sales rose almost 26 percent,” the report noted.
