How To Ruin The 3-Series And Not Influence People,
The 2014 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo
U.S. sales of the BMW 3-Series continued to decline on a year-over-year basis in April 2013, but it easily held off the Mercedes-Benz C-Class for top-selling luxury car honours. Through four months, the C-Class leads the 3-Series by 1352 units, down from 2250 units at the end of the first quarter.
Among more costly luxury cars, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is 747 sales ahead of the next-best-selling BMW 5-Series. In a slightly different midsize luxury subset, the much less costly Lexus ES outsells the E-Class and 5-Series and finished 1110 sales ahead of the surging Lincoln MKZ in April.
Size and price don’t always establish competitive sets, however. That’s why we’ve thrown all the cars into one chart this month. There’s been some rearrangement aimed at simplifying the luxury cars post, simplification we hope to further shortly with a full rundown of luxury brand car sales. Flagship cars like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class are displayed here.
You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank U.S. small and midsize luxury cars any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
