Sales of the C-Class Saloon climbed by 43.6%, placing it at the very top in a highly competitive segment.

The SMMT report also stated that the new, 13MY C-Class range was at No. 9 overall in the UK registrations for the month of July as it had achieved high sales in the private and fleet markets. Both the CLS and S-Class are leaders of their respective markets. For July, the CLS has a segment share of 44.4% while the S-Class has a 39.3% segment share.

The AMG high performance division is continuing with its admirable start to the year, driven up by sales of the C 63 AMG Saloon and the C 63 AMG Coupé. AMG experienced a 140.8% sales increase in July, contributing to an overall 149.3% climb for the year to date.
