Narrowly missing the cut for Canada’s 30 best-selling luxury vehicle team were the Acura TSX, Volvo S40, Acura CSX, Audi A3, and Audi Q7. In fact, if you mix in the Volvo V50’s sales with the S40’s, you’ve got 105 in total, enough to place the Volvo duo in 28th. These cars are named mainly for those who complain that the Mercedes-Benz B-Class, Hyundai Genesis, and Volkswagen Touareg shouldn’t be included.
The BMW 3-Series was once again Canada’s best-selling luxury car and the country’s best-selling luxury vehicle overall. Its lead over the number two spot (this month held by the Benz C-Class, last month by the Lexus RX) grew from 18 to 76 units. 3-Series sales were up 2.2% in Canada in February as the wildly popular Bimmer swam among the mainstream players on Canada’s list of the 20 Best-Selling Cars.
There are four members of last month’s best-selling luxury vehicle group which are no longer present: Audi Q7, Acura CSX, Cadillac Escalade, and the Volvo C30, sales of which plummeted 80% from January. New members include the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class (and its G-Wagen sibling), Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Lincoln MKZ, and the BMW 1-Series, sales of which skyrocketed 171% from January.
16 vehicles on this list of 30 best-selling luxury vehicles carry German badges. There are four American automobiles, one Korean car, one British SUV, one Swedish crossover, and thus seven Japanese vehicles. The Lincoln MKX and Acura MDX, incidentally tied for seventh spot in February, are both built in Canada, as is the Lexus RX350
