Small And Midsize Luxury Car Sales Figures In America - October 2013 YTD

YOY Benz E-Class Sales Have Risen
27.5% During The Last Three Months
Audi sold not two, not three, not four, but one Audi A3 in October 2013. 

Of course, Audi dealers in America don't really have any A3s to sell. The A3 sedan arrives in a few months with a very attractive exterior, a nice array of features, and, obviously, the Audi badge. 

In the meantime, buyers looking for affordable Audis choose the A4 or, more often, the Q5. For every A4, Allroad, and A5 sold in America last month, BMW sold 2.4 copies of the 3-Series/4-Series duo.

Between the C-Class and new CLA, Mercedes-Benz didn't find quite as many entry-level luxury buyers as BMW did with the 3-Series and 4-Series, and that doesn't take into account BMW's 588 1-Series buyers. Combined, the C-Class and CLA-Class generated 11,443 sales in October. 

The CLA's presence may adversely affect the C-Class, which was down 14% in October after falling 19% in September, the CLA's first month of availability. But Mercedes-Benz is still selling more cars with their lineup expansion. Total C-Class/CLA-Class sales were 50% stronger than what Mercedes-Benz managed a year ago with the C-Class.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank small and midsize luxury cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page. The + icon has been removed from year-over-year improvements. Look for red font to designate year-over-year declines. Although BMW Canada began reporting sales of the 4-Series and 3-Series separately in October, BMW USA has yet to do so.

^ A4 includes Allroad, without which A4 sales grew 10.9% to 3040 in October; 3.1% to 30,032 YTD. Allroad sales were up 6.3% to 437 in October, 103% to 4558 YTD.
^ Combined, the new Q50 and the outgoing G were up 36.2% to 4683 in October, down 11.7% to 43,686 YTD. G sedan sales fell 45% to 1470 and 28.5% to 27,513 YTD. Q60 sales fell 8.5% to 657 in Ocotber, 19.9% to 8816 YTD.
GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Acura ILX here but also with mainstream cars like the Buick Verano, too, and the Audi A5 is also displayed with coupes and convertibles... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
