Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada - December 2014 And 2014 Year End

2014 Audi Q3
Canadian sales of compact luxury crossovers jumped 81% in 2014 thanks to the arrival of new competitors for the BMW X1. Those competitors, the Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, arrived in the second half and, as the year progressed, had a negative impact on the popularity of the BMW X1.

Canada luxury SUV sales chart 2014
These are certainly not the most popular luxury utility vehicles, however. Move up a notch or two in terms of size and price and you'll find numerous vehicles which outsold the whole small trio. (Granted, two-thirds of the trio didn't have a full year.) The Acura RDX and MDX, Audi Q5, and Lexus RX all generated more than 6000 Canadian sales in 2014.

As for the RX, its 7913-unit total made it the country's top-selling premium brand SUV/crossover, just 51 sales ahead of the Audi Q5.

The RX was joined by a smaller Lexus crossover in December, the RAV4-related NX. 296 NXs were sold last month, a figure which didn't have a tremendous impact on the RX's total. RX sales slid just 0.3%, or two units, to 570 units.

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.
