US – Small Luxury Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

The small luxury car segment didn’t have a very good month in July. It’s had a tough year so far, too. The segment was down roughly 3,200 units for the month, and when you look YTD, it’s down about 33,000 units.

Very few models saw sales increase for the month of July and even fewer saw a rise in sales YTD. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class led the way in terms of sales volume. It was predictably followed by the BMW 3-Series. Rounding out the top three was the Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan, which is a new car and off to a good start.

With so many of the models in this segment seeing serious sales declines, it will be interesting to see how automakers react to the slow sales.

Below you will find sales figures for all small luxury cars sold in the United States broken down by month and by quarter.

We will report July 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Thursday, August 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
