Like the Q5, the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK, and Volvo XC60 all posted significant year-over-year improvements in April. The BMW X4, Lexus NX, Lincoln MKC, and Porsche Macan added another 1282 sales that couldn’t have existed in April 2014 – they weren’t yet on sale. 

The Macan’s record-setting April, together with a best-ever month for the Cayenne, pushed Porsche to record high Canadian sales, too.

A smaller trio of upmarket compact utility vehicles jumped 900% thanks to the arrival of the Audi Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA – they weren’t available in April 2014 – and a tripling of BMW X1 volume.

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.
