Though its face is hardly fresh, under the skin, the 2017 Audi A4 is very much a new car, and that newness is paying off in the United States luxury sector where premium cars are rapidly losing market share.
Cohorts from Acura, BMW, Cadillac, and Infiniti tumbled in November 2016, but Audi A4 sales jumped 26% to 3414 units, the fifth consecutive monthly improvement for the top-selling Audi car.

Four out of every ten cars sold by Audi’s U.S. dealers in November were A4s. U.S. sales of the smaller A3 are down 13% so far this year. Jointly, the larger Audi A6 and A7 are down 18% through 2016’s first eleven months.
Year-to-date, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is America’s top-selling premium brand car. Combined, the BMW 3-Series and 4-Series – the latter a 3-Series offshoot – have outsold the C-Class by a wide 26,025-unit margin.
