Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada – June 2014 YTD


2014 Audi SQ5 blue

Although the Audi Q5 has taken over from the Lexus RX as Canada’s best-selling premium brand utility vehicle, the Q5 and its cohorts have seen their sales collectively fall 4% this year. June volume fell 6% despite the addition of 168 Porsche Macan sales and 53 Lincoln MKCs.

Admittedly, a significant increase in Q5 popularity does not stand in contrast to the RX’s slight 2% improvement. The RX has historically been a value-priced midsize luxury crossover, but Lexus is now making room for the NX, and the RX’s current $50,600 base price (a 12.6% jump from MY2013) reflects an attempt to carve out space for more heavily-optioned NX200Ts and the hybrid NX300h. 

Indeed, along with the Q5, sales of the Acura RDX, Infiniti QX50, Land Rover LR2, and Land Rover’s Range Rover Evoque have all increased. 

Yet combined sales of the BMW X1, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLK have fallen 25%, a 1746-unit loss. Exclude the Macan and MKC from the equation and this smaller, less expensive tier of premium utility vehicles has fallen 5.6%, or more than 1000 units, over the last six months.

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. 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.
