BMW's 3-Series continued to lead all premium brand cars, however, with 946 October sales. That represents a 12% decrease for the 3-Series, yet overall 3-Series/4-Series sales were up 0.3%. 

Overall BMW passenger car volume was up 7% as their SAVs slid 13%. Likewise, Mercedes-Benz's cars grew at a faster clip than their SUVs. A similar story was told at Acura, Porsche, and Volvo, too. 

If you're a frequent GCBC reader, you know that growth in the luxury and mass-market sectors has been generated by SUVs and crossovers of late, while Canada's car market is, if not shrinking, then suffering progressively decreasing market share. The October results for some of Canada's favourite luxury brands stand in contrast with this trend, but only temporarily.

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 cars 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 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.
^ Acura combines sales figures of the outgoing RL with the new RLX. Mercedes-Benz's Canadian sales figures combine the E-Class with the CLS-Class. Audi Canada's A4 sales figures include sales of the Allroad.
‡ The XTS, K900, and Equus aren't listed here because they're not massive - they are - but because their price points position them much more closely to, for example, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the S-Class. Genesis sales figures here do not include sales of the Genesis Coupe (as Hyundai's U.S. Genesis sales figures do), making the comparison with premium brand vehicles much more valid.
