You get the feeling Honda's (HMC) next Acura model will be named the Loss Leader. Despite a 17% upswing in overall sales, its TL, TSX and RL coupe and sedan sales slumped, with the RLs dropping 30%. Its RDX and MDX crossovers, however, revved up their sales by nearly 19% and 65%, respectively.
While the company isn't synonymous with luxury, Hyundai's Genesis is taking a larger chunk of the upscale sedan market. While its Azera model's sales slumped by more than a third, the Genesis' market has grown by a similar margin and has emerged as viable competitor to Lexus and Acura's mid-level offerings.-- Reported by Jason Notte in Boston.
