Small luxury SUV sales in Canada looked strong in 2019. The segment saw a rise overall in sales in December, too. This all bodes well for 2020.
The segment was up by about 850 units in the month of December. When you look at the year as a whole, the segment was up by about 6,800 units.
The leader for the segment was the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class by a long shot. The vehicle was up in sales considerably for the year and saw an uptick for December, too. It was followed by the Lincoln MKC and the Lexus NX. The MKC saw a dramatic rise in sales in December and a small uptick for the year. The NX was down for both the month of December and the year.
There were a few new models that drove sales forward in 2019, including the Cadillac XT4. It will be interesting to see how things go in 2020. The segment could continue to see strong numbers, but we expect things to slow down a little bit.
Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD.
