The BMW X3 has been the best-selling luxury SUV for most of 2019, and it continued that trend in the second-last month of the year.

In November 2019, the X3 sold an impressive 161 units; this in a month that saw sales drop substantially in relation to the rest of the year. In second place is the Audi Q3 with 73 units sold.

The Audi Q5 just missed out on a top-two finish on 70 units.

Volvo’s XC60 slots into the fourth position with 64 units sold, ahead of the Range Rover Evoque on 60 units. The Volvo XC40 did well to go sixth with 45 units sold, and the Land Rover Discovery Sport sold 27 units last month.

Do note: the new Discovery Sport is set for imminent arrival, which should, theoretically, see a spike in sales.

BMW's X4 also sold 27 units, followed by the Jaguar E-Pace on 21 units. The Lexus NX closes out the top ten on 12 units.
