Mercedes-Benz's GLA is set to arrive shortly. Buick has been selling Encores for nearly two years, but to what extent does a Q3 customer wants an underpowered ugly duckling from a Detroit automaker? The Encore isn't unpopular: 629 were sold in August along with 990 copies of the Chevrolet Trax.

These vehicles will be displayed in their own separate table once there's a large enough number of vehicles to support their own list. Far more popular than the X1 is Audi's Q5, the best-selling luxury brand utility vehicle in Canada. BMW is selling 1.9 X3s per X1 even in this year of greater X3 decline. 

No matter which way you look at it, Canadian interest in these vehicles is surging. No premium brand SUV or crossover puts up the kinds of numbers achieved by category leaders like the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4. But it's not difficult to spot a marketplace shift when many of the automakers selling these vehicles didn't offer a single utility vehicle nameplate less than two decades ago. No Acuras, Audis, BMWs, Mercedes-Benzes, Porsches, or Volvos. 

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank luxury SUVs and crossovers any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.

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.
