Subaru danced through the downturn of 2008 and 2009, and the party didn't stop in 2010, the company's best-ever year in the United States. But Subaru's major new-model introductions are all behind it now.
Tribeca -58%, Subaru's perennial loser
DAIMLER A.G. +13%
Mercedes is looking pretty good, but Smart is a disaster.
E-class +41%, M-B's top seller
The Outlander Sport arrived too late in the year to meaningfully affect Mitsuibishi's total.
JAGUAR LAND ROVER +18%
The new XJ starts with a bang, but the XF is slipping; meanwhile, the SUVs are holding their own.
Land Rover +21%
LR4 +123%, the LR4 accounted for the large majority of Land Rover's 2010 increase Range Rover +20%
Loser LR2 -18%
The Boxster was up a bit, but it is the addition of the Panamera (along with some added Cayenne sales) that accounted for Porsche's sales increase.
Cayenne +8%, but look for an improvement in 2011, as sales have surged since the redesign (+57% in December)
Panamera, outsells all the sports cars, but not the Cayenne
