Mercedes-Benz leads all premium auto brands in Canada sales despite slowdowns from the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the entry-level utility vehicle in the brand’s SUV/crossover spectrum, and a 26% year-to-date plunge from the Mercedes-Benz GLE, the original mainstream Mercedes-Benz SUV. (The G-Class, of course, came first.)  

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, a car of all things, leads Canadian premium auto sales in total sales. Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLS sales are rising.

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.
