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.
