Small And Midsize Luxury Car Sales In Canada – July 2015 YTD


2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

The BMW 3-Series was Canada’s leading luxury car nameplate in July 2015. Year-to-date, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the premium brand leader, but even with a doubling in July volume last month and a 10% 3-Series decline, BMW ate into the Benz’s seven-month lead.

Combined, BMW sold 1315 3-Series and 4-Series cars in July, an important figure given the fact that the 4-Series is a 3-Series offshoot and formerly operated under the 3-Series banner. Together, they’re significantly more numerous than the C-Class on year-to-date terms, as well.

Mercedes-Benz did, however, just reveal the gorgeous new 2017 C-Class Coupe, pictured above. Similarly, we’ll see a new Audi A5 Coupe in the coming months – it’s A4 donor platform is already in replacement mode. Infiniti’s Q60 replacement is coming soon, as well, and the Lexus RC is only nine months old.

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.
