2015 Porsche Macan S 2014 Audi SQ5

Up a notch in size, Mercedes-Benz sold 649 GLKs, BMW sold 434 X3s and 100 X4s, and Audi sold 791 copies of the best-selling premium brand utility vehicle in Canada, the Q5. 

GCBC's review of the SQ5 will be published soon, as the car's week-long visit came to an end when Porsche Canada's Macan S was delivered to GCBC Towers for the third week of October.

September 2014 sales of these smallest luxury brand crossovers clearly increased dramatically as the X1 improved and was joined by two new nameplates. The larger (but still relatively small) cast of characters led by the Q5 posted 36% gains, or 20% if the newest players (Lincoln MKC and Porsche Macan) are excluded.

Mercedes-Benz's GLA is set to arrive shortly. Buick has been selling Encores for nearly two years, but to what extent does a Q3 customer wants an underpowered ugly duckling from a Detroit automaker? The Encore isn't unpopular: 629 were sold in August along with 990 copies of the Chevrolet Trax.

These vehicles will be displayed in their own separate table once there's a large enough number of vehicles to support their own list. Far more popular than the X1 is Audi's Q5, the best-selling luxury brand utility vehicle in Canada. BMW is selling 1.9 X3s per X1 even in this year of greater X3 decline.

The Q5, X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK, and Porsche Macan owned 54.4% of the category, down from 58.2% a year ago. 

Among their larger brethren, sales did not rise as quickly in July due to losses at Infiniti (QX60 down 17%), Acura (MDX down 17%), and Volvo, where only 69 XC70s and XC90s were sold in total. 

Land Rover Range Rover Sport volume more than doubled in July. Lexus RX sales slid 2% to 649 units, a July best for premium brand utility vehicles.
