In the top 15, only the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Chevrolet Corvette, and Lexus RC break through the SUV/crossover juggernaut. Combined sales of the E-Class and 5-Series were down 27% last month.

Among all premium brand cars, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which leads on year-to-date terms, fell to the BMW 3-Series in the month of July, specifically. The Audi Q5 is Canada's top-selling premium utility vehicle so far this year, but the Lexus RX led all luxury SUVs/CUVs in July.

° Escalade breakdown by variant
^ Mercedes-Benz Canada's figures combine the E-Class with the CLS and the S-Class with the CL.
$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.
