The Audi Q5 was Canada’s 17th-best-selling SUV in November, three spots ahead of the Lexus RX, the only other premium brand member of Canada’s top 20. Q5 sales shot up 75% to 683 units, enough to make November the Q5’s best month ever. Year-to-date, the Q5 was only 101 sales behind the A4 as Audi’s top-selling model, having outsold the A4 by 239 units in November 2012.

Lexus’s RX, meanwhile, accounts for 47% of all the Lexus vehicles sold in Canada in the first eleven months of 2012. That’s down from 50% in the same period of 2011, not because RX sales are shrinking – they’re up 7% – but because the ES and GS families have kicked into a higher gear.
At BMW, 48% of the brand’s Canadian volume is branded with an X, from the top-selling X3 to the X1, X5, and low-volume X6. Aside from those four models and the 3-Series, BMW’s five other nameplates only account for 17% of the brand’s Canadian sales.
Inside Infiniti showrooms, where the company’s midsize seven-seater will soon become the QX60, the JX35 (for now) is responsible for 27% of the brand’s year-to-date sales. The JX has only been on sale since April. Since its on-sale date, the Infiniti JX35 has accounted for 35% of Infiniti’s volume and has outsold the next-best-selling G (soon to be the Q50 and Q60) by 286 units.
