US – Small Luxury Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

Small luxury cars struggled in the month of September. The segment saw considerable declines for both the month and YTD.

When you look just at the month of September, there were roughly 4,500 fewer sales when compared to this month last year. The YTD numbers show that there have been about 52,000 fewer sales.

Leading the pack in terms of overall sales volume is the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, it saw about a 13 percent drop for the month and has seen a 10 percent drop so far this year.

We expect this segment of the market to continue to struggle in the coming months and even into next year.

Below you will find sales figures for all small luxury cars sold in the United States broken down by month and by quarter.

We will report September 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter.
