Plunging luxury car sales were the order of the day in the United States in April 2016. At the low end, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class slipped 17%. Among the most popular premium cars, Mercedes-Benz C-Class sales fell 15%.
And at the high end, Mercedes-Benz S-Class volume plunged 34%, a loss of 692 sales compared with April 2015.
Lost car volume at virtually every level is being made up – mostly – by healthy utility vehicle volume. In April, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class (and its GLS successor) jumped 36%, a gain of 796 sales.
