Although the majority of Canadians who buy entry-level premium brand cars don't actually choose a BMW 3-Series, its dominance remains clearly visible when we look at the gap between the 3er and its nearest rival. For every Mercedes-Benz C-Class sold in September, BMW's 3-Series attracted 1.9 buyers. 

For every Audi A4 sold, BMW's 3-Series attracted 2.8 buyers. And BMW sold four copies of the 3-Series for every IS sold by Lexus.

3-Series sales did fall in September 2013, however, but the fall wasn't as harsh as the losses reported by a handful other high-volume luxury car nameplates. BMW's 8% 3-Series decline (a loss of 118 sales) compares with Audi's 18% A4 drop (equal to only 109 fewer sales) and Lexus's 37% ES sales slide (a 167-unit loss). 


Overall, sales of lower-end luxury cars rose 6.5% in September as the Mercedes-Benz B-Class - a $30,500 hatchback  - Cadillac ATS, Infiniti Q50, Mercedes-Benz CLA, and Lexus's new IS all posted triple-digit volume. Between those four nameplates, only the Lexus was on sale last year, and in its older iteration it sold just 160 copies last September.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? 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. 
^ Total Infiniti G/Q60/Q50 volume equalled 389 units in September, up 71%, and 2297 YTD, down 9%. The G sedan and Q50 combined for 357 September sales, up 96%, 1861 YTD, down 3%.
