Top 30 Best-Selling Luxury Vehicles In Canada – March 2011


Knocked off its regular perch atop the standings as Canada’s best-selling luxury car, the BMW 3-Series ceded the March 2011 crown to its rival at Mercedes-Benz, the C-Class. Sales of the small Benz sedan jumped 19.8% year-over-year and 71.7% from February. 

The most popular luxury brand utility vehicle was the Lexus RX on sales which improved by 30 units. The Lincoln MKX wasn’t far behind. Only five of the top ten most popular luxury brand vehicles in March were traditional passenger cars. 16 of the 30 Best Sellers were cars, with the BMW 1-Series bringing up the rear. Half the cars on the list wear German badges. That includes the Volkswagen Touareg’s proletarian logo – the Touareg is one of just a handful of vehicles permitted entry to this list that doesn’t boast an accepted luxury badge. The Hyundai Genesis sedan and Hyundai Equus would be, too. So would the Nissan GT-R and Chevrolet Corvette. Not a single one of those four sold in great enough volume to make it to this group.

The Genesis was here. Last month. Sales of the $38,999-$49,999 fell 41.8% in March, however. Departing along with the Genesis were the Porsche Cayenne and Land Rover Range Rover Sport. (The Range Rover Sport narrowly missed out on maintaining its position by 16 sales.) The Acura TSX (127 March sales), Audi Q7 (115), and Volvo S60 (113) deserve honourable mentions. The newbies are Infiniti’s EX35, the Acura CSX, and the fresh-to-market $30,950 2011 Lexus CT200h.
