BMW’s 7-Series scored a win over the usually victorious Mercedes-Benz S-Class (and its CL-Class coupe sibling) in September 2012. The 7-Series sedan has been joined by a four-door version of the 6-Series, the Gran Coupe. The 6-Series will continue to be listed alongside more overtly sporting cars elsewhere on GoodCarBadCar.net.
Also rare was the Lexus LS460’s ability to outsell the Jaguar XJ. Lexus did not sell any LS hybrids in September. Five have been sold in the first three quarters of 2012. The XJ was the only car in the category to suffer from declining year-over-year volume in September. The XJ, LS, and S-Class are all down on year-to-date terms, as well.

Also in September 2012, Mercedes-Benz’s GL-Class, along with its unrelated and very rare G-Class partner, outsold the Cadillac Escalade, Infiniti QX56, Land Rover Range Rover, and Lincoln Navigator combined. This is with GL (and G-Wagen) sales falling. In fact, sales of all three Escalade variants also slid on a year-over-year basis. So did sales the aging Lincoln Navigator.
