The small luxury car segment in Canada didn’t have a very good time in the month of December. It also struggled in 2019 as a whole. The segment has struggled all year long and ended the year on a low note.
When you look at the segment for the month of December, you’ll see that it was down by about 1,000 sales. The segment was down by about 50,000 units for the year as a whole.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class led the pack in terms of overall sales volume for the year. The vehicle was down for the month of December and the year as a whole, though. The BMW 3-Series came in second place. It saw a jump in sales in December and the year as a whole. In third place, was the Acura TLX. The model saw a small rise in sales in December, but it struggled in 2019 overall.
We’d assume sales of small luxury cars to continue to struggle in the coming months of 2020. The segment has been trending down for the last couple of years, and there’s no reason to assume 2020 would be any different.
