With BMW not releasing individual sales figures for its model line-up, including the X3, it’s left the playing open for other medium luxury SUVs to take top honours.

This past month it was the turn of the Range Rover Evoque. The British SUV found favour among 85 new owners, but it was closely followed by the Volvo XC60 on 81 units sold.

Audi’s Q3 slots into third place with 77 units, ahead of the Volvo XC40 (62 units). The Audi Q5, a former top seller in this category, sold 52 units. Some way off the Q5 is Land Rover’s Discovery Sport on 26 units.

The Jaguar E-Pace sits pretty on 20 units sold, ahead of the Lexus NX (18 units) and Alfa Romeo Stelvio (14 units). The Lexus UX rounds out the top ten with 11 units sold.

Naamsa says: "New vehicle sales continue to mirror the deteriorating economic outlook in the country. The impact of the coronavirus outbreak and potential to affect supply chains and disrupt manufacturing operations around the world are increasing daily and developments are monitored closely."
