Click Chart To Expand

After a one month slide into second place, the BMW 3-Series grabbed its title as Canada’s top-selling premium brand vehicle in February 2015 thanks to a 29% year-over-year increase and a 23-unit differential over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The 3-Series was joined on the podium by its two-door (and four-door) offshoot, the 4-Series. Combined, the pair was up 67% to 1182 February sales.

There were two other BMWs in the top 15 and two Benzes to join the C-Class. Audi and Lexus each earned two positions; Acura three; Infiniti one.

^ Mercedes-Benz Canada’s figures combine the E-Class with the CLS and the S-Class with the CL.
$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 new Cadillac CTS sedan’s base price is above $50,000, but not the base price for other cars in the CTS lineup. Yet. Total CTS sales in February: down 22% to 45.
