Two-door cars which were formerly part of the 3-Series’ lineup now fall under the 4-Series banner. 

Together, the 3er and 4er were up 4% even as the overall car market fell flat.

2014 was marked by the arrival of new entry-level Germans. The BMW 2-Series was as rare as the 1-Series it replaced. 
But Mercedes-Benz sold 3851 CLAs in 2014. 

Audi sold all of its 2452 A3s in the final three-quarters of 2014.

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. This explains why you’ll see the XC70 listed with luxury SUVs and the Acura ILX with mainstream cars… 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.
^ Acura combines sales figures of the outgoing RL with the new RLX. Mercedes-Benz’s Canadian sales figures combine the E-Class with the CLS-Class. Audi Canada’s A4 sales figures include sales of the Allroad. 
‡ The XTS, K900, and Equus aren’t listed here because they’re not massive – they are – but because their price points position them much more closely to, for example, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the S-Class. Genesis sales figures here do not include sales of the Genesis Coupe (as Hyundai’s U.S. Genesis sales figures do), making the comparison with premium brand vehicles much more valid.
