Mercedes E-Class Gets Momentum Boost Over Audi & BMW

By  | 

What is there not to like about the latest Mercedes-Benz E-Class? The car is getting a lot of praises for having the best luxuries, performance and in-cabin features. Even major auto reviewers have rated the new E-Class to be better than rival BMW 5-Series and Audi A6.

As a result, the E-Class has pushed Mercedes-Benz upwards on the sales front after it recorded 68% better sales in the first half of 2017 when compared to 2016. Market analyst NordLB points their finger at the sales momentum of Mercedes-Benz which takes away any opportunity for rival makes to catch up.

In June last month, Mercedes managed to move 209,309 vehicles and this further extends its lead over BMW and Audi. BMW achieved 192,873 units whereas Audi recorded 170,650 in sales for the month of June.

It feels that the 2017 sales competition is already dusted with Mercedes claiming the bragging rights over its rivals. But of course, we still need to wait until December this year before we can truly name Mercedes as the king of 2017.
