In Canada, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, with likely very little help from its CL-Class coupe sibling, outsold all its rivals combined in January 2014.
Last January, months before Mercedes-Benz’s new S-Class was to arrive, the Jaguar XJ was the class leader. XJ sales plunged 69% in January 2014 as, incidentally, XF volume shot up 250% to 35 units.
South of the border, where CL-Class figures are known, only 2.5% of the S/CL duo’s sales were generated by the departing coupe. (It’ll be replaced by an S-Class two-door called the S-Class Coupe soon.)
If that figure held true in Canada, only three of the 118-unit S-Class January 2014 Canadian total would have been generated by the CL. In other words, even if you exclude the CL, the S-Class still outsold all its rivals combined in January 2014.
