Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada - July 2015 YTD

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4Matic
Canadian sales of small luxury SUVs and crossovers jumped 43% to just under 4400 units in July 2015. The gains attributed to new contenders – Q3, GLA, Discovery Sport, and NX – were joined by increases from most established small luxury utilities.

Canadian sales of the Audi Q5, Canada's best-selling premium brand SUV/crossover, slid 4% and BMW's X3 plunged 51%. But the Acura RDX, BMW X4, Infiniti QX50, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, Lincoln MKC, Mercedes-Benz GLK, Porsche Macan, and Volvo XC60 all posted meaningful improvements compared with July 2014.

For the RDX, it was the best July ever. July was the fifth consecutive month in which Toyota Canada topped the 400-unit mark with the Lexus NX. It was the second-best month yet for the Porsche Macan.

Up a notch in size, Volvo's XC90 is on its way back. The 234% year-over-year increase in July works out to only 83 extra sales, however, and with just 117 sales in total, the XC90 isn't just well back of top sellers like the BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz M-Class, it's way below the average monthly pace Volvo Canada achieved in 2005. 

A decade ago, Volvo was selling 230 XC90s per month in Canada. As availability improves, we expect to see bigger XC90 numbers. If we don't, there'll be trouble.

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.
