Like its MDX utility vehicle counterpart, Acura’s mainstream $39,490-$48,990 TL sedan enjoyed strong September 2011 sales in Canada. Acura Canada reported a 63% improvement in TL sales, making it more than twice as popular as the $42,150 Lexus ES350 (down 28%) and 54 units stronger than Mercedes-Benz’s much more expensive E-Class/CLS-Class.
A big part of Acura’s autumn sales resurgence is the company’s 0.25% lease rate on 25-month leases, a deal which brings 25 months of complimentary maintenance along with it. Overall Acura sales rose 12% in September. Even the worst-selling RL reported huge gains, rising from zero sales in September of last year to four last month.
Elsewhere among Asian luxury manufacturers, sales of the soon-to-be-replaced worst-selling Lexus GS fell 67%. Lexus Canada sold one hybrid GS450h in September 2011. Lexus sold only one GS450h in September 2010, as well. Infiniti M sales were up 51% in September but are down 22% year-to-date. Sales of the Hyundai Genesis sedan shot up 129% in September – that’s the Genesis sedan’s best September yet – but sales are down 12% through the first three quarters of 2011.
