Entry-level luxury competition is growing more numerous and more fierce, from the Audi A3 (which easily outsold the Audi A4 in January) and the Mercedes-Benz CLA, the ninth-best-selling premium brand car in America last month.
But one step above those cars, the ever-expanding 3-Series family is increasingly popular, the new C-Class is finally taking hold, and the Japanese competition has grown roots in their recently updated form.
Meanwhile, another step up the ladder, upper-crust lineups from Germany struggled to match January 2014’s output.
Audi A6 sales dropped 19% in January; the Audi A7’s volume was chopped in half. BMW’s 5-Series sales increased, but only by 90 units, and only after four consecutive months of decline. As for Mercedes-Benz’s E-Class, U.S. sales have now decreased in six consecutive months.
