Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada – May 2015 YTD


2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover Canada began selling the company’s new entry-level SUV in May 2015. 

The Discovery Sport picks up where the LR2 left off in an attempt to challenge big-selling small SUVs from Acura, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Lincoln, and Volvo in an arena that Land Rover helped birth with the Freelander.

We await proper Discovery Sport sales figures once the model ramps up. Only 38 were sold in its first month on the market. To become a top seller, Land Rover would need to multiply that total by about 18.

With 378 sales, May marked the fourth month in the MKC’s 19-month history that more than 300 copies have been sold.

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.
