The S-Class is the freshest face in a segment that favours fresh faces. The S-Class outsold the Lexus LS by a 2.7-to-1 count in April 2014. The LS, like the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz’s own CLS, compete in a much lower price bracket.
The A7 and CLS are very much style-conscious, high-priced versions of midsize luxury cars. BMW’s 6-Series, meanwhile, is available in three different bodystyles, and sales, while slow in April, are booming this year. The 6er is priced a lot like the 7-Series, a traditional S-Class rival. But the 7-Series has sold just once in 2014 for every 2.8 S-Classes.
Segment-wide sales were up in April, whether you include the A7, 6-Series, and CLS or exclude the trio. 1% of the passenger cars sold in the United States in April 2014 are displayed in this post, and 29% of the sales displayed in this post were generated by the S-Class.
