Among their slightly larger brethren, there were a number of significant improvements in June 2016, but growth across the sector was significantly slower than that of the overall SUV/crossover segment, where sales jumped 16%. 

The Audi Q5 is only two units behind the Mercedes-Benz GLE as Canada’s top-selling premium brand utility vehicle. Q5 growth continues apace despite its old age – Audi launched the first-gen Q5 in 2009 – but the rate of growth has, as you would expect, slowed in the first-half of 2016.

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.
