Mercedes-Benz C-Class outsells the Bmw 3-Series in January 2013

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 6, 2013

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class topped sales in January 2013 among entry-level sport/luxury sedans. A total of 7214 units of the C-Class were sold, around 10.6% higher than sales in January 2012. The second-ranked model is the BMW 3 Series, which sold 2383 units lower. While the automotive industry had a good month in January 2013, most of the entry-level sport/luxury sedans did poorly.

The 3 Series experienced a 27.9% drop in January 2012 but this can be partly attributed to BMW clearing inventories of old, E90-generation cars to prepare for the release of the new F30-generation car in February/March. The 3 Series and C-Class each got sales of more than 4000 units in January 2013 but the gap with the other competitors is quite wide.

The Infiniti G, which came in at third place, had a 26.2% decline to 2815 units in the same month that Infiniti presented the G’s successor. Audi A4 got fifth place, with a 3% increase to 2755 units.

The Cadillac ATS was at fourth place, with 2781 units sold. It is lower than half of the C-Class volume but it’s 26 units higher than the aging Audi A4. It seems that the ATS is gaining some ground. Last month, 1954 units of the Volvo S60 the Swedish sedan were sold with a 38.1% increase – the largest jump among the others in the segment.
