Then again, BMW also sold 619 copies of the 4-Series, which is essentially a 3-Series offshoot. Together, the 3-Series and 4-Series were up 1% to a C-Class-besting 1462 units in June.

Stuck in between the C and 3 was the Acura RDX, Canada's top-selling premium utility vehicle in June 2015. The RDX now trails the Audi Q5 by just 15 units heading into the second-half of the year.

° Escalade breakdown by variant
$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.
