Among vehicles with base prices above $50,000, Canada's six most popular nameplates in January 2016 were all utility vehicles.
Tops among premium brand autos in January, regardless of price point, was the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class. (In sales reports, the reference is still to the M-Class, which was renamed for model year 2016 when the "coupe" bodystyle was added. It's a similar story for the GLK and its GLC successor.)
Sales of Mercedes-Benz SUVs and crossovers jumped 52% to 1532 units in January, a greater SUV/crossover sales total than the overall total achieved by every other premium brand save for BMW.
