Small And Midsize Luxury Car Sales In Canada - May 2015 YTD

2014 Audi A4
In May 2015, for the first time since June 2013, Mercedes-Benz Canada sold more than 1000 copies of its C-Class.

GCBC called the C400 4Matic, "an honest-to-goodness, legitimate luxury car." Many Canadian car buyers seem to disagree, as the C-Class is currently outselling all other premium brand vehicles, not just in May but over the course of the first five months of 2015.

This latest C-Class boosted Mercedes-Benz to the brand's best ever Canadian month of sales in May.

It's not as though BMW's struggling. Combined, the 3-Series and its 4-Series offshoot easily outsell the C-Class. Respectively, their sales are up 9% and 113%, year-over-year. Like Mercedes-Benz, May 2015 was the best month ever for the BMW brand in Canada. 

Audi? Yeah, there too, the aging, about-to-be-replaced A4 was up 15% in May. But May wasn't the best ever month for Audi Canada. May was the second-best month ever for Audi, second only to the preceding month of April.

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.
