Sales of the BMW 3-Series jumped by 4217 units in June 2013 alone, a 63% increase which came about even as sales of its chief rival, the Mercedes C-Class, rose 17%. The other major German, Audi’s A4, found 576 of its 3248 buyers via the Allroad.
June was the Cadillac ATS’s second-best month so far. Lost in the disparaging remarks so many want to cast upon General Motors is the fact that the ATS sedan is easily outselling the Audi A4 sedan and A4 Allroad, and not just by a hair.
No, the A4 isn’t the most popular car in its class. (To challenge the best-selling 3-Series, on volume terms, would be to unseat the Jordan-led Bulls in the early 90s.) The incentivized ATS isn’t selling as well as it maybe could have, but it’s not at the bottom of the pack, either, outselling as it did in June all but six premium brand cars.
Perhaps more people would be buying the ATS if they didn’t know they could wait for the ELR. Who knows?
