Canadian auto sales continued to climb in early 2018, rising 2 percent year-over-year, as the industry attempts to post a sixth consecutive year of record volume. At the heart of the growth are SUVs and crossovers. Meanwhile, many of the most popular luxury utility vehicles are soaring, selling better than ever. The result? Only 7 of the 25 most popular luxury-brand vehicles in Canada are passenger cars. 18, including the leader, are utility vehicles.
