Buoyed by strong sales across the board, the Lexus SUVs continues to outsell its car lineup. The NX and RX are on fire, making up a full 47% of all Lexus sales in the USA. Combine these two models with the consistently strong GX and freshly updated LX, and there’s no question Lexus has the strongest SUV lineup in the US luxury market.

Things are more difficult for the car side of things, where every model is showing a percentage decrease over last year. Most notable is the GS — even after its refresh, new 2.0L turbo engine, and the introduction of the GS F, the sports sedan is down 37% compared to last year.
