The C-Class and 3-Series are vitally important cars for their respective model ranges even with entry-level models accompanying them with greater gusto than in the past. 

The 3-Series brings in three out of every ten BMW Canada customers; its 4-Series offshoot another 14%. At Mercedes-Benz, excluding Sprinter van sales, the C-Class attracts slightly more than 30% of Canadian customers, up from 22% at this time a year ago.

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.
^ 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.
