    With refreshed ES and GS, and new RX, I predict Lexus will finish the year at #1.

    new IS200t, GS200t and LX will likely factor in as well as brand new NX and RC.

    Interesting times.

    If the ES wasn't around Lexus would definitely sell more GS's and IS's. Spectacular numbers nevertheless, they will definitely close this year with the top spot.

    Q5, over 5000 units . Impressive for a 7-year old model run. Happy the NX is selling so well. Goes to show how much people love the design despite the haters.

    Agreed, and the Q5 has been a sort of benchmark in this class for years. NX is solidly in the mix here.
    Note: Q5's predominate engine today is a good turbo4 like the NX.

    Once the LX, GS, RX, ES and the other IS options sales will continue to grow even more. If Lexus introduces a new LS and LC next year their numbers will increase a tremendous amount leading them back to the sales record.

    Mercedes' number is only 31,250 when smart and Sprinter are counted, which they shouldn't be!

    Mercedes' August sales is really 28,373, not 31,250!!

    Is there a mis-print in the third line from the bottom of the sales table for August? It seems one more number than there are columns.

    The thing is the Q5 never sold like this before. I've noticed that it and Rdx volume jumped when the NX came. Makes we wonder what's suffering since these are up.

    The thing is Lexus sells sedans well in the NX price point whereas the A4 does average and Acura lags. The ES and IS outsell all of their sedans individually.

    I'm just curious where all this Q5 love suddenly came from. It was selling in the 3k range.

    Also note how Audi has blown past infinit, Acura and cadillac. It used to be close. Now Audi here is moving solidly up the sales rankings and they got fresh new product coming.

    I quite frankly think Q5 is a pretty "average" product and have never cared for it much. Not sure how they're blowing them out like this... maybe 2015 MY clearance deals?
