Small And Midsize Luxury Car Sales In Canada – November 2016 YTD


2017 Audi A4 blue

In a world that’s increasingly favouring luxury crossovers, not luxury cars, Audi Canada is managing to sell more of both. 

Year-over-year, Audi Canada volume is up 15% above and beyond 2015’s record sales pace. Thanks doesn’t just go to the Q5, Canada’s top-selling luxury utility, or the steadily growing small Q3 or the surging Q7. Audi car sales are up 7% this year. In fact, Audi car volume jumped 13% in November 2016 because of improvements from the A4, A5, A7, and TT.

The A4, Canada’s third-best-selling premium brand ca,r jumped 61% to 540 units, the A4’s fourth consecutive month above 500 units.

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 CT6, 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.
