Year-to-date, BMW’s core model line is America’s 20th-best-selling car, easily leads the U.S. premium car sales race, and accounts for four out of every ten BMW USA sales. May 3-Series/4-Series volume jumped 18%. So far this year, sales are up 20%.

The 3-Series and its direct rivals and many of their affordable “luxury” siblings combined for a 22% May improvement even as the overall car market decreased by more than 3%. New product helps, but many established nameplates are faring significantly better now than they did a year ago.
Along with the 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class sales were up 40% in May 2015. The Acura ILX, TSX/TL-replacing TLX, Audi A3, BMW 2-Series, BMW i3, Infiniti Q50, and Mercedes-Benz’s CLA all posted meaningful increases.
