Lexus SUVs and crossovers set a new August sales record this month with a stellar performance across the board. On the other hand, the car lineup had a difficult time, with only the ES & LC showing any real signs of life — from the press release:

“Customers took advantage of our Golden Opportunity Sales Event and we were pleased to see Lexus sedans gain momentum for the month of August, most notably the ES,” said Jeff Bracken, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “We also saw a sales increase for the NX and GX luxury utility vehicles. As the new 2018 models begin to roll in, we expect strong sales as we head toward the end of the year.”
