Canadian sales of the Q5 rose 4% in 2015, far slower expansion than its segment or the overall SUV/crossover sector managed. But 2015 was also the first-generation Q5's seventh year on the market. And yet, 2015 was also the aging Q5's seventh consecutive year of sales growth. Q5 sales in 2015 were 68% stronger than Q5 sales in 2010, the model's first full year on the market.


Indeed, Q5 sales increased even though Audi added a more affordable crossover late in 2014. 3596 copies of the Audi Q3 were sold in Canada in 2015, just 123 units shy of the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the Q3's top-selling direct rival.

The Lexus RX and Acura RDX were the Audi Q5's closest challengers. RX sales slipped 11% to 7036 in 2015 as Toyota Canada transitioned from the third to fourth-generation RX, and as Lexus managed to also sell 6127 copies of the more affordable NX. Acura RDX volume jumped 13% to 7380 units, a new record for the top-selling Acura.

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.
