Although the Mercedes-Benz C-Class led the way thanks to a 15% uptick to 1026 units, the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh-best-selling luxury vehicles in Canada were all two-row SUVs. 

Only the C-Class, Audi A4, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class/CLS-Class stood in the way of SUV/crossover dominance.

Among vehicles with base prices above $50,000, regardless of brand, 13 of the 15 top sellers in March 2017 were utility vehicles.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class continues to reign, however, as the top-selling premium brand vehicle in Canada, and C-Class sales continue to grow. In each of the last 11 months, C-Class volume has grown, year-over-year.

^ 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.
