Large Luxury Car Sales In Canada - August 2017


It was a good August for the revamped Porsche Panamera in Canada. Sales of the family friendly Porsche more than doubled year-on-year for August.


Sales of the both the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7-Series were cut in half when compared over the same period, as each failed to replicate August 2016's spike. The 7-Series remains ahead in YTD terms, while the big Mercedes is now 17 cars behind the same point in 2016.

Small And Midsize Luxury Car Sales In Canada - August 2017


August was the best month of the year so far for the BMW 3-Series, with the saloon reaching 810 sales to push its YTD 16.1% ahead of the same point in 2016.




Combined sales of it and its coupĂ© brethren the 4-Series also outsold combined sales of Audi's similarly platform sharing A4 and A5 saloon / coupĂ©, selling a total of 1,099 units to 969 from the four rings.  


This is likely to be the last month where the Infiniti Q60's sales growth is of such a magnitude as to be a four-figure percentage increase. Since the current model hit showrooms last autumn it's been a success for the brand, but come September it will need to top 106 sales if it is to continue its run of 12 months of consecutive sales growth.

This explains why you'll see the XC70 listed with luxury SUVs and the Acura ILX with mainstream cars... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. ^ Mercedes-Benz's Canadian sales figures combine the E-Class with the CLS-Class. Audi Canada's A4 sales figures include sales of the Allroad. ‡ The XTS, CT6, K900, and Continental aren't listed here because they're not massive - they are - but because their price points position them much more closely to, for example, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the S-Class. Genesis sales figures here do not include sales of the Genesis Coupe (as Hyundai's U.S. Genesis sales figures do), making the comparison with premium brand vehicles much more valid.

Large Car Sales In Canada - August 2017



While August saw some recovery for the Canadian Large Car market, sales in this sector were still down on the same month the previous year's performance by almost 10%.

This has led to another chip from the segment's 2017 YTD total, which remains 10.7% ahead of the same point in 2016.

The Dodge Charger and Chevrolet Impala both saw marginal growth in sales over last August, though both are still comfortably ahead in YTD terms.

The Ford Taurus slipped behind its 2016 YTD in August. Its Canadian sales appeared to peak for the year in June, when 910 Taurus's were sold, but since then its figures have been disappointing. Traditionally, its sales dip in Canada heading into the winter months, but this year the drop has been more severe.

Midsize Car Sales In Canada - August 2017


Only four models in the Midsize Car category posted growth on last August's figures; the Chevrolet Malibu, Honda Accord, Mazda 6 and the VW Passat & CC. 




This month last year the Hyundai Sonata outsold the Honda Accord. Its lead was short lived, lasting only until November 2016 after which the Honda overtook it and has stayed ahead every month since then. The Accord's August figures come as the brand reports its best August sales figures in Canada since 2007.


Sales of hybrid and electric cars in Canada show significant growth, with increases for the Ford C-Max and Toyota Prius as well as the addition of the Kia Niro to figures providing 26.4% more sales than in August 2016.
