Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada – November 2015 YTD


2016 Audi Q7 white

Canadian sales of Canada’s best-selling luxury utility vehicle, the Audi Q5, jumped 53% in November 2015, causing the Q5 to expand its year-to-date, 11-month lead over the next-best-selling Acura RDX to 657 units. 

The Q5’s little brother, Audi’s Q3, posted a modest 4% improvement in November, more than enough to outsell the rising BMW X1 but not enough of an increase to catch the surging Mercedes-Benz GLA.

The Q5’s larger brother, Audi’s Q7, is both in the midst of a transition phase (into second-gen form) and suffering from a stop-sale notice on its popular diesel variant, just like the Volkswagen Touareg TDI and Porsche Cayenne Diesel, which isn’t as vital to the Cayenne’s volume. As a result, Q7 volume plunged 73% to only 47 units in November 2015.

No premium SUV nameplate posted a greater gain in November than the new Volvo XC90, sales of which jumped nearly 11 times to 161 units. 

The XC90 was Volvo Canada’s top-selling model, accounting for 39% of the brand’s sales. But it’s not close to catching segment leaders from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, let alone the more affordable, two-row Lexus RX.

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.
