The luxury D-crossover segment contracted nearly 14 percent to 115,548 units in Q3 2020, meaning XT5 sales underperformed the segment average.

We should note that Lexus RX sales now include the two-row RX and the three-row RX L, with the three-row RX L being a rival to the new Cadillac XT6. As such, a more apt comparison would be to pit XT5 and XT6 sales against those of the RX.

The Cadillac Society Take

We believe that sub-optimal XT5 inventory at the dealer level caused by COVID-relate disruptions was responsible for the negative Cadillac XT5 sales performance. We’re hopeful that XT5 sales will rebound during the fourth quarter of the 2020 calendar year, barring any further COVID-related interruptions in production (supply).
