Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada - August 2017


The Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class received a welcome boost, with 7.9% year-on-year growth. The GLA remains the only Subcompact Luxury SUV not to have sold more cars in Canada in the year so far than it had up to the same point in 2016. A refreshed version of the GLA was shown by Mercedes-Benz at the Frankfurt Auto Show earlier in the month, which should give sales a further boost as we head towards 2018.

The Infiniti QX70 had its best month in the Canadian market by some margin in August, with 113 registrations. This is the first time the QX70 has hit three figures in Canada, after it had dragged its heels in YTD figures in previous months. It has now overtaken its 2016 performance to the end of August by 5 sales.

Large SUV Sales In Canada - August 2017




A further drop in sales for the Toyota Sequoia puts it 6.7% its 2016 YTD. This while its stable mate, the Land Cruiser, reported its best month of the year in Canada in August, rocketing its sales to 37.4% ahead of last year's YTD.


The majority of the Large SUV market continues to post strong figures, bringing the sector's YTD over the 10k mark, and 20.8% ahead of last year.


The Ford Expedition's sales fell for the fourth consecutive month. Although a drop year-on-year of almost 80% seems pretty steep, last August's exceptional 551 sales was uncharacteristic for the Expedition at this time of year. 118 sales still marks the Expedition's best August in Canada since 2011 - apart from last August, of course.
