Small And Midsize Luxury Cars Sales In America – August 2017


 

No sign of the late-summer spike of previous years for the BMW i3. BMW are due to unveil a revised version of the i3, including a sportier S version, in Frankfurt later in September thought consumers seem to be opting for more traditional models featuring electrification from the German automaker as their eco-concious vehicle.

The Audi A5 came within 100 sales of overtaking its saloon stablemate, the A4, in August’s sales figures. As sales have risen greatly since the new model’s introduction, is this the time for Audi to truly take the fight to the mighty BMW 4-Series coupe in the US market?

^ A4 includes Allroad, without which A4 sales were 3022 in June; 2017 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.
