A perennial favourite from BMW, the 3-Series, is down 27% this year, a loss of 1678 sales, after a 25% August 2016 tumble.
Despite rising sales of late, Mercedes-Benz C-Class sales are down by a tenth this year, but the C-Class is still Canada’s top-selling premium brand car through two-thirds of 2016.
Acura, Bentley, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo car sales are in decline this year.

Some of the worst declines belong to some of the most affordable cars. Lexus CT sales, for example, are down 42%. Cadillac ATS sales are down 26%. Acura TLX sales are down 17%. Volvo V60 sales are down 49%.
These are not the S-Classes and Mulsannes and Quattroportes of the automotive universe. These are the cars that compete at a price point where Canadians could otherwise buy a nice compact luxury crossover or a family-friendly three-row utility vehicle.
