Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada – November 2013 YTD


2014 Volvo XC60 brown
Unlike Its Rivals, The Volvo XC60 Isn’t
Selling Better This Year Than It Did In 2012

After outselling its rivals in February, March, June, having sold 78% more copies at the halfway point, BMW X3 sales have fallen 33% over the last five months.

Big deal? Well, presumably BMW Canada would like to sell the maximum number of X1s (down 43% in 2013) and X3s. But the brand is finding buyers with its original SAV, the X5. 

Sales of the X5 are up 87% over the last two months. According to the Automotive News Data Center, Canadians registered 912 X5s in November 2013 – the X3 didn’t top 900 units even at its high point back in March – and the X5 ended November as the month’s 17th-best-selling SUV/crossover in Canada.

It’s hard not to pay attention to the massive gains achieved by vehicles like the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque (up 511%, reportedly, in November) and Porsche Cayenne, up 30% last month. The X5’s total, however, puts their total sales figures in perspective. 

Added together, the Audi Q7, Range Rover Sport, Mercedes-Benz M-Class, and Porsche Cayenne didn’t sell as often as the X5 in November 2013.

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 you’ll see the XC70 listed with luxury cars as well as with SUVs and crossovers and the Touareg with luxury SUVs and mainstream SUVs… 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.
