Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada - April 2016 YTD

2016 BMW X1
Canadian sales of the smallest premium utility vehicles rose 29% in April 2016 despite sliding Mercedes-Benz GLA sales. 

The Audi Q3 recorded its best month ever, as Canadians seemingly disagree with GoodCarBadCar's March review. Sales of the BMW X1, meanwhile, rose to a 25-month high of 423 units, a 59% year-over-year increase.

Up a notch in size and price – and a few notches in prestige and panache – the Audi Q5 also recorded its best-ever monthly Canadian sales total. In the Q5's case, this meant outselling all other premium SUVs and crossovers with 908 April sales, more than double the Q3's April total.

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.
