Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada – February 2016 YTD


2017 Porsche Macan GTS grey

If a luxury car that’s selling more often in Canada this year than last is rare, rare is the luxury SUV/crossover that’s selling less often in Canada this year than last.

The Audi Q3, Acura RDX, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, Volvo XC60, Lexus GX460, and Porsche Cayenne are exceptions to the rule. Yet at each of their respective brands, total sales of premium SUVs and crossovers are rising despite their individual deficits.

At Audi, sales of the Q5 are up slightly, and Q7 sales have more than quadrupled. At Acura, the RDX’s 11% loss is cancelled out by the MDX’s 18% gain. 

Range Rover Evoque sales are down, yes, but Land Rover’s four other models have essentially doubled their volume. Volvo’s 28-unit XC60 drop is more than made up for by an additional 205 XC90 sales. 

Lexus’s minor 24-unit GX460 decline comes as Lexus’ other three utilities rise 10%. Porsche’s modest Cayenne decline is nothing in comparison to a doubling of Macan volume.

Strength in the SUV/crossover market is by no means limited to the premium sector, of course. But boosted by these strong performances, it’s no wonder Canadians are now buying and leasing 1.2 utility vehicles for every single passenger car.

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.
