3-Series and 4-Series sales are jointly up 38% to 4221 units through the first-third of 2015, a gain of  1171 units. Sales of the C-Class, still fresh off its fourth-gen revamp, have increased 60% so far this year and jumped 80% in April, specifically.

Mercedes-Benz car sales are up 15% this year and jumped 27% in April. The overall car market is flat as the industry sources much of its growth from pickup trucks, SUVs, and crossovers. But joining Mercedes-Benz in the car sales growth column are BMW (up 37% YTD), Audi (up 9% YTD), Acura (+35%), and Volvo (+0.3%).

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.
^ 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.
