Small And Midsize Luxury SUV Sales In Canada – February 2017


2017 Porsche Macan Turbo Performance Package

With premium brands earning an inordinate percentage of Canadian auto industry market share in the early part of 2017, it’s no surprise to see luxury SUVs and crossovers earning an especially healthy part of that growth.

Subcompact luxury utility vehicles jumped 29% through the first two months of 2017, led by double-digit percentage increases from the BMW X1 and top-selling Mercedes-Benz GLA.

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.
