Mercedes-Benz, however, was Canada's top-selling luxury brand in Canada. With an additional 964 sales from the GLA in the latter portion of the year and 3851 CLAs sold in 2014, Mercedes-Benz outsold BMW by 1123 units. 

Audi, the third-ranked luxury brand, was 8291 sales back of BMW. In a record year for the Canadian auto industry, all three of those brands reported record sales in 2014, as did Infiniti, Land Rover, Lexus, and Maserati.

* A4 sales include sales of the unreported Allroad. Mercedes-Benz E-Class & CLS-Class volume is joined before the figures arrive at GCBC.
$50,000 CDN (before delivery) is an arbitrary borderline, but if GCBC was to follow this new system of designating only expensive vehicles as luxury vehicles, $50K seemed like a safe place to begin - it equals the average U.S. new car transaction price plus $15,000, plus another $5000 to account for Canadian increases. Plenty of less expensive vehicles with specific models feature prices above $50,000 - M, RS, and AMG models come to mind, specifically - but in the case of this list, we know that none of the registrations were of cars priced at $35,900, as would be the case with the BMW 320i, which costs less than a Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T Limited. The biggest problem with a $50,000 minimum price of entry? SUVs like the $49,299 Ford Expedition. The new Cadillac CTS sedan's base price is above $50,000, but not the base price for other cars in the CTS lineup. Yet.
