Meanwhile, sales of the Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque are down as Land Rover sells more LR4s and Range Rover Sports. The Mercedes-Benz GLK is down 13%; Mercedes-Benz's bigger M-Class is up 26%. Sales of the Volvo XC60 are down slightly, as are sales of the XC70, but combined sales of the XC60, XC70, and new-to-Canada V60 are up 28%.
Plenty of premium SUVs and crossovers are being sold, of course. The Audi Q5 is tied for the lead with the BMW 3-Series as Canada's top-selling premium brand vehicle. Land Rover's March volume was up 25% year-over-year, up 59% from March 2012, 149% compared with March 2011, and 195% from March 2010. (Their Discovery Vision Concept that was introduced in New York this week, pictured above, is a preview of the LR4's replacement.)
From the Acura MDX to the Porsche Cayenne, sales of luxury utility vehicles in the second table are up by more than 2000 units in 2014.
