Cape Town - The Range Rover/RR Sport shot to the top of the luxury SUV market in March after tough start in 2018.

The Range Rover did not make the top 10 best-sellers in January and barely scrapped in during February. In March, however its fortunes changed dramatically to become the best-selling luxury SUV in SA.
 
During the course of March 2018, 177 buyers took ownership of a new Range Rover/RR Sport, followed by the BMW X5 on 171 units.
 
The Toyota Land Cruiser 200 was third with 136 units.

Jeep’s Grand Cherokee sits in eighth place after 52 units left the showroom floor, a single unit ahead of the Range Rover Evoque (51).
 
Former Car of the Year champion, the Volvo XC90, completes the top ten with 39 units.
