As GM Canada reported the best calendar year of Cadillac sales since 1979, Cadillac’s cars slid 5% in 2015.
2016 begins on a much better note. Cadillac’s cars jumped 45% in an admittedly low-volume January, an increase of 250 units thanks to a doubling of Cadillac ATS sales, a 73% CTS increase, and a 44% XTS uptick.
For the ATS, 259 sales represented the fifth-best total among small and entry luxury cars. Only two Mercedes-Benzes and two closely related BMWs sold more often.
For the Cadillac CTS, sales remained rather low in this increasingly unpopular category. But the CTS outsold the Hyundai Genesis, Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and numerous other potential rivals in January.
The Genesis, A6, and 5-Series all outsold the CTS in calendar year 2015. The Genesis, A6, 5-Series all declined in January. Mercedes-Benz’s E-Class and its CLS-Class offshoot jumped 44% to 231 units last month.
