Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada - December 2016 & 2016 Year End

2017 Audi Q5 red
The Audi Q5 was Canada's top-selling luxury utility vehicle in 2016, the second consecutive year of Audi leadership among premium brand utility vehicles. 

At the end of the long-running first-gen Q5's tenure – a new model is arriving for MY2017 – sales rose 1% even as Audi boosted Q3 sales by 7% and saw Q7 sales nearly triple.

Sales of numerous Audi Q5 rivals grew at a far faster rate. The Acura RDX, BMW X3, Land Rover Discovery Sport (new in 2015), and Porsche Macan reported superior percentage growth. Jaguar also added 1289 F-Pace sales to help make 2016 the best year ever for Jaguar Canada, which grew faster on year-over-year terms than any other multi-vehicle brand in Canada.

Up a notch in size and/or price, the Lexus RX jumped 15% to 8147 units, only 166 sales behind the Audi Q5.

Just as BMW's X models and Mercedes G, GLA, GLC, GLE, and GLS models and Audi's Q models helped those brands set Canadian sales records in 2016, Lexus relied on the RX and smaller NX for nearly two-thirds of the brand's sales. 

With record annual volume, Lexus was Canada's fourth-ranked premium brand for a second year running.

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.
