April 2013 U.S. Luxury Car Sales Rankings By Model - Top 56 Best-Selling Luxury Car Sales In America - Every Luxury Car Ranked

2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan beige
America's luxury passenger car market has grown faster this year than the overall car market, albeit only slightly. 

Car sales in America are up 3% this year, having risen 2.8% in April 2013. But sales generated by Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Volvo are up 7% this year, having risen 13.5% in April.

For the first time, GoodCarBadCar has taken all the sales figures from the all the cars produced by these manufacturers and thrown them into one 56-nameplate list. Nearer to the bottom, you'll also find sales figures for the Chevrolet Corvette, Hyundai Equus, Nissan GT-R, Tesla Model S (estimated), and numerous brands which don't report model-specific sales data but do, for now, sell only passenger cars. When all those cars are included, luxury car sales are up 9% this year, those two extra percentage points coming in large part from the Tesla.


We hope to supply an SUV/crossover version of this post and a full luxury vehicle version in the coming days, if not the coming hours.

These are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort cars by April volume by clicking the April 2013 column header, or you can rank cars by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list an automaker's cars together by selecting the Car column header. Just remember, the list is horizontally flipped from the norm: YTD on the left, monthly data on the right.


As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page.
