2017 Mercedes C-Class Unfazed By BMW 3-Series’ Sudden Uprising

By  | 

The March automotive sales figures are out and it saw a lot of changes on the figures front when compared to the January and February this year. One change that caught our attention is the sales of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which rose by a margin of 20.5%.

This is really huge as it translates to 8,021 units of the C-Class getting sold last month. The best part is that rival BMW 3-Series remains flat on sales as the numbers are near identical to the ones achieved in February this year. It is still a high number but one that is no longer threatening the C-Class.

When comparing year-to-date sales, the C-Class is well ahead of things with 20,619 units sold in the US thus far. BMW, on the other hand, has sold 22,717 vehicles but this figure consists of both the 3-Series and the 4-Series.

It goes to show that the luxury sedan domain still belongs to Mercedes-Benz and it will look to be this way for the rest of the year. It is not all doom and gloom for BMW as they are still kings in the luxury SUV market.
