For a few hundred dollars less than the 2011 Cadillac SRX, Mercedes-Benz Canada will sell you a basic rear-wheel drive GLK350. It is that vehicle that’s grabbed hold of the hearts of Canada’s small luxury SUV buyers, as the GLK out-sold the SRX by 208 units in December 2010. Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class sales were up 27.6% in the final month of 2010; SRX sales jumped 33.7%. Meanwhile, Acura had a strong #2 finish with the aging RDX but sales were actually down slightly from 337 in December 2009.
As for the aforementioned Lincoln MKX and its competitors, Mercedes-Benz was unusually strong as a 64.2% increase over December 2009 shot the M-Class up to top dog status last month. The 2011 Mercedes-Benz ML350 4Matic starts at $57,400, approximately $16,000 north of the GLK350. Acura MDX sales jumped 39.8% while Lexus faced a decline of 40.1%, a fact which didn’t trouble the RX’s year-end positioning atop the standings.
