2012 was nearly a record-setting year in Canada. Matching that level of sales in the lowest-volume month of 2013 wasn’t going to be easy for some manufacturers, and that doesn’t mean 2013 won’t end as the higher-volume year. Rare was the luxury utility that posted a year-over-year Canadian sales improvement in January 2013. Sales of the BMW X1 fell 68%. Range Rover Evoque volume fell 31%; the Land Rover LR4 was down 43%. Audi Q7 sales dropped 36%. Lincoln’s MKT and MKX slid 40% and 25%. Sales of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class slid 42%. And Volvo Canada posted a 37% decline in XC90 sales.
