Compact luxury SUVs and crossovers
Want to build a surefire success? Design a small luxury utility vehicle: Bigger than a Volvo XC40 but smaller than an Acura MDX. Nearly every member of the segment, from the class-leading Audi Q5 (Canada’s top-selling premium brand utility vehicle) to the Mercedes-Benz GLC; from the Infiniti QX50 to the Volvo XC60, are selling more often in 2018 than in 2017. No premium segment is more popular, as compact luxury crossovers now account for 3.4 per cent of Canada’s overall market.
