Despite an increasing aversion to passenger cars in Canada, the C-Class has now improved its Canadian output on a year-over-year basis in ten consecutive months. It remains extremely doubtful that the current rate of improvement can hold for the rest of 2017, but even if C-Class volume flatlines from here on out, 2017 would still be the best year ever for the C-Class in Canada.

^ Mercedes-Benz Canada's figures combine the E-Class with the CLS.
$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.
