Canada Car Sales Rankings By Model - March 2016 YTD


Canadian sales of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series, Audi A4, and Acura TLX combined to lose 1776 Canadian sales in the first three months of 2016. 

There are premium brand cars bucking the trend, particularly the most affordable cars sold by premium brands. 

The Acura ILX, Audi A3, BMW 2-Series, Cadillac ATS, and Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class combined for 782 additional sales. Only three premium brand cars are selling more often than the CLA. 

One such car is the wide-ranging BMW 4-Series lineup, sales of which grew 23% to 1133 units in the first-quarter.

Numerous big brothers are doing better this year than last, as well. In 2016's first-quarter, Canadian sales of the Audi A6, Audi A7, BMW 5-Series, Cadillac CTS, Infiniti Q70, Lexus GS, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class are all on the rise.

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.
