2019 U.S Small Luxury Car Sales Analysis

Report Updated: With October 2019 Data on November 1st, 2019

Top Level US Reports: By Manufacturer / By Brand / By Model / Best Sellers

Small luxury car sales don’t look too great. The segment is struggling to match the sales numbers of last year both for the month of October and so far this year.

When you look at just the month of October, you’ll see that the segment is down about 800 units. If you look at just the YTD sales numbers, you’ll see that the segment is actually down by about 41,000 units.

This isn’t too surprising. The segment has been trending down for some time now. Leading the pack in terms of overall sales volume is the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and it is also struggling. The model is down by about three percent when you look YTD.

We expect the segment to continue to struggle in the coming months and into 2020.

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.
