Canadian sales of small luxury SUVs and crossovers jumped 51% to 5092 units in June 2015 and shot up 51% to 26,249 units in the first-half of 2015.
Propelled along by five new nameplates which weren’t on sale a year ago – those five vehicles added 6470 units on their own – the group of 16 combined for nearly 9000 total more sales in the first six months of 2015 than during the same period one year earlier.
Despite its own 0.5% decrease, no premium utility vehicle is selling as often as the Audi Q5 in Canada. (Acura’s RDX is just 15 sales abaft.) Among vehicles which were on sale at the beginning of 2014, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque’s 39% improvement is the greatest.
