    Nicely done by Lexus in August, in a market that's cooling some off 2015 peaks.

    Still a tough market overall, but the light trucks are shining.

    As we know SUVs are killing the market rt now but can you imagine when the RX gets a third row how many more sales it will have?

    Also on the Lexus cars. I think the looks are fine but honestly they need more engines that are better performance related. 2.0 is fast enough for the slow people but the 3.5 isn't cutting it. I don't know if they need 3 engines but the IS and GS could be in the low to mid 5s that would help a lot. Also the IS needs a faster engine is they aren't going to bring the ISF back to compete with the Germans who all have a fast smaller sedan with an M, S, or AMG on it.

    NX great month! Get a 3.0 engine!

    Yeah no growth sedans right now. The competition as well. Look how Benz now has two SUV "coupes" suddenly. The CUVs... It's what the market wants.

    Please joke away.... :)

    You should hold off for the new LS or get the GS F.

    Congrats Mike! Darth RX ! :)


    As for the sales surprises, still a bummer that the car sales are spiraling downward fast BUT the NX at over 5K and GX at 2.5k is a pleasant shocker! WOW!

    I'd have to agree that small-to-mid-sized SUVs are the craze right now (witness the two newest mid-size additions, the Buick Envision and Cadillac XT5, with a smaller, compact Cadillac XT3 on the way). But, with Lexus already in the market with a mid-size RX and compact NX, the big question is if a smaller-than NX (sub-compact) Lexus SUV will be successful in the American market. Honda and Nissan have been successful with the HR-V and Juke (Mazda, less so with the CX-3)...but those are vehicles with mainstream, not upmarket nameplates. I know, of course, that opinions differ on that question, and, while not trying to sound evasive, mine is probably right on the borderline as to whether it would succeed or not.

    MM, I agree and something to keep an eye on with a future UX, but the GLA, X1, Q3 seem to be doing fairly well pushing 1500-2500 units per month. If this volume is measured as successful, I see no concerns for a UX to hit these volumes too.
