2012 Audi Q5 profile
Canada small luxury suv sales chart January 2012

Canadians made the Audi Q5 the most popular premium crossover or SUV in January 2012. Q5 sales jumped 31% year-over-year; it was Audi’s best-selling model.

It’s not as though the Audi is the only vehicle in its segment to perform well. Eight of the SUVs in the first table were on January’s list of the 30 best-selling luxury vehicles in Canada even as three of those eight suffered year-over-year declines.

The larger Mercedes-Benz M-Class was the second-best-selling luxury SUV in Canada in January 2012. Sales of the middle-rung Benz utility vehicle soared through the roof at a 91% clip. Combined sales of the Acura MDX, Acura ZDX, and BMW X5 don’t add up to what the Mercedes-Benz M-Class achieved last month.
