Top 15 Best-Selling Luxury Vehicles In Canada - July 2016

2017 Audi A4
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class's 17% increase to 888 sales was more than sufficient for the best-selling premium brand car in Canada to end July as Canada's top-selling premium brand vehicle overall.

In fact, even if C-Class sales growth was suspended, the C-Class's 761-unit total from July 2015 was more than enough to fend off a challenge from the Acura RDX.

The C-Class was one of only five passenger cars on the list of Canada's 15 best-selling premium brand vehicles in July 2016.

Two of the others are direct C-Class rivals from BMW and Audi. Two more, the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA, operate one rung down the ladder.

Among vehicles with price tags above $50,000, July's 10 favourites were all SUVs/crossovers. 

Only one car, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (and its CLS-Class offshoot) cracked the top 15.

^ Mercedes-Benz Canada's figures combine the E-Class with the CLS and the S-Class with the CL.
$50,000 CDN (before delivery) is an arbitrary borderline, but if GCBC was to follow this new system of designating only expensive vehicles as luxury vehicles, $50K seemed like a safe place to begin - it equals the approximate average U.S. new car transaction price plus $15,000, plus another $5000 to account for Canadian increases. Plenty of less expensive vehicles with specific models feature prices above $50,000 - M, RS, and AMG models come to mind, specifically - but in the case of this list, we know that none of the registrations were of cars priced below $50,000.
