Our Take On The Top 20 Best-Selling Luxury Vehicle Sales Numbers

Mercedes-Benz is the brand with the most sales included in the Top-20 Luxury Vehicle sales at 22,659 in total, with Lexus second (16,279) and BMW third (15,328). Audi follow up with 11,713 in the top-20, just over half of what Mercedes-Benz has managed.

Combined, the BMW 3 & 4 Series manage 2nd in the countdown, ahead of rival the C-Class, but behind the Lexus RX, the crossover from Toyota’s luxury wing proving exceedingly popular in the States.

Three out of five of Mercedes-Benz’s entries in the Luxury car countdown are also Crossovers or SUVs, with sales of its more traditionally successful saloons dwindling in the face of American consumers’ desire for a raised driving position.

Audi’s top-seller, the Q5, leaps up 43.6% on last October, as it falls just 545 sales short of a place in the top-3 (without the 3- & 4-Series joining forces). The Cadillac XT5 muscles in below the C-Class to go third in the countdown, the highest entry from an US automaker in the luxury vehicle chart for October.
