For the first time since July of last year, BMW Canada reported a year-over-year X1 sales increase. 

June 2013 also marked the first time in a while that Mercedes-Benz reported a year-over-year GL-Class sales increase. That hadn't happened since November.

At opposite ends of the German crossover spectrum, the X1 and GL-Class were both relatively popular in June 2013. The X1 ranked sixth among premium brand vehicles; the GL ranked seventh among vehicles priced above $50,000.

Red font indicates year-over-year declining sales
$50,000 CDN (before delivery) is an arbitrary borderline, but if GCBC was to follow this new system of designating only expensive vehicles as luxury vehicles, $50K seemed like a safe place to begin - it equals the average U.S. new car transaction price plus $15,000, plus another $5000 to account for Canadian increases. Plenty of less expensive vehicles with specific models feature prices above $50,000 - M, RS, and AMG models come to mind, specifically - but in the case of this list, we know that none of the registrations were of cars priced at $35,900, as would be the case with the BMW 320i, which costs less than a Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T Limited. The biggest problem with a $50,000 minimum price of entry? Cars like the Cadillac XTS, which starts at $48,995, sporty cars like the $48,600 Audi TT, and SUVs like the $49,930 Chevrolet Tahoe and $49,675 Volkswagen Touareg.
* With the new Acura MDX, set to arrive in July, Acura Canada will be dropping the base price below $50K.
