Top 15 Best-Selling Luxury Vehicles In Canada - October 2015

2016 BMW 3-Series
The BMW 3-Series was Canada's top-selling luxury car in October 2015, the fourth consecutive month of top-selling status for the 3-Series.

But Mercedes-Benz's C-Class year-to-date lead heading into November, 686 units, means the 3-Series needs to outsell the C-Class by 343 units in November and again in December to keep its perennial crown.

Mercedes-Benz is, by a wide margin, the highest-volume premium automaker in Canada. Through the first ten months of 2015, Mercedes-Benz leads BMW by 3693 sales, Audi by 10,144, and Lexus by 14,292.


The C-Class ranked fourth among premium vehicles in October 2015, but it was one of just four Mercedes-Benzes in the top 15. Meanwhile, among vehicles priced above $50,000, three of the top seven vehicles in October in Canada were Mercedes-Benzes.

Canada's top-selling premium brand utility vehicle in 2015 is the Audi Q5. Its October lead measured only 12 units over the Lexus NX, but the Q5 leads the Acura RDX by 482 units in 2015.

° 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.
