Small And Midsize Luxury Car Sales In Canada - November 2015 YTD

2014 Cadillac CTS red
BMW Canada reported a 31% year-over-year increase in 3-Series sales, decreasing the year-to-date lead of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class by 446 units to a surmountable 240 units heading into December.

The 3-Series is Canada's perennial luxury car favourite, although the latest C-Class, reviewed by GCBC 13 months ago in C400 4Matic form, kicked the "luxury" component up a notch. Year-over-year, C-Class sales dipped 1% in November 2015, but 2015 is expected to be the best year for the former baby Benz since 2012.

There are other baby Benzes now, of course. The Mercedes-Benz CLA's sales dropped 4% to 341 units in November but have risen 4% in 2015's first eleven months. The CLA's chief rival, Audi's A3, trails the CLA by 162 units heading into December. A3 sales fell 6% in November, a loss of 15 sales. The A3 TDI, the only Audi in North America which uses Volkswagen's 2.0L diesel, is not currently allowed to be sold.

Unlike the C-Class, Acura TLX, A3, CLA, BMW 2-Series, and Volvo V60, less affordable and larger luxury cars aren't selling more often this year than last. Rare exceptions to the rule include the Cadillac XTS, Infiniti Q70, Kia K900, and Volvo S80, all relatively unpopular cars. (Mercedes-Benz S-Class volume, displayed in the large luxury category, are up 5% this year.)

November's exceptions were somewhat more numerous. Canadian sales of the Acura RLX, Audi A6, Audi A7, Cadillac CTS and XTS, and Infiniti Q70 all increased compared with November 2014.

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.
