Lexus’ August sales numbers are in, and it’s not that bad, considering the year so far:
After that 24.6% drop in July, any decrease that doesn’t hit double digits has to be viewed as a good thing. The 17.4% jump in IS sales is surprising, and would be immediately attributed to the US dealership Summer Sales Event, except the same sale happened last year. Must just be a hot month for the sporty sedan.
The LX 570 continues to be a mind-boggling success — I would have never expected so many to be sold. I suppose it’s just proof that there’s an exception to every rule.
