In fact, April 2017 was the C-Class's sixth consecutive year-over-year monthly gain. And in April, the BMW 3-Series was actually outsold by its 4-Series offshoot.

The C-Class and 3-Series are by no means the only components in the American luxury scene. Audi A4 sales are rising quickly. The Acura TLX in April had its best month since October 2015. 

Among larger, more costly luxury cars, rare is the car that sold more often this April than last. The worst declines were reported by the big Cadillacs, the Lexus GS, and the Mercedes-Benz CLS.

^ A4 includes Allroad, without which A4 sales were 3246 in April; 11,236 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. 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. Hyundai USA, not GoodCarBadCar, chooses to combine sales figures for the Genesis sedan and Genesis Coupe, forcing us to include the Genesis with volume-brand cars on pricing grounds before we even get to the "brand status" issue. The K900, Equus, and XTS are here not because of their size but because of their price points, their lack of direct comparability with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
