Small And Midsize Luxury Car Sales In Canada – February 2017


Canadian sales of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class jumped 75% to 1044 units in February 2017, enough for the C-Class to easily lead all premium brand vehicles and rank seventh among passenger cars overall.

February 2017 was also the first month in which Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Canada sold Alfa Romeo Giulia sedans. The first three Giulias in Canada found homes last month. Not surprisingly, there have been some quality concerns with the Giulias driven by major publications

The C-Class is by no means the only luxury car to report Canadian sales growth. The new Audi A4 is surging, on track for a record sales year. The Acura TLX, BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz CLA, Audi’s A6 and A7, Lincoln MKZ, and Maserati Ghibli are all on the rise, as well.

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 XTS, CT6, K900, and Continental 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.
