According to analytical data, the German brand continues to enjoy a higher level of popularity among motorists than other premium brands.

In 2019, Mercedes-Benz was the leader in sales of premium cars in the United States, but it was ahead of another premium automaker – BMW.

However, it looks like the Three-Pointed Star is about to reclaim the crown. Foreign publication Automotive News received at its disposal data on quarterly sales of luxury brands, with the exception of the British Jaguar Land Rover, and based on this information they have already compiled a sales rating.

With the growing number of models, Mercedes has increased its leadership over BMW, showing a steady increase in sales in the first quarter of 2020.

Back in April 2020, Mercedes announced that 67,746 cars were sold in the United States, not including vans, and BMW sold 59,455 cars. In the 2nd quarter of 2020, a car manufacturer from the city of Stuttgart (where Mercedes headquarters is located) was also ahead of BMW: 59,461 sold Mercedes cars, compared to 50,957 sold BMW cars. This increased Mercedes’s leadership over BMW by as much as 16,795 units in the middle of the year.

Not surprisingly, crossovers and SUVs were most popular among Mercedes models in the second quarter of 2020. The mid-size GLE-class became the most popular model – a total of 9,500 units were sold, followed by the compact GLC-class with 9,461 units. The third most popular model remains the E-class with a sales result of 6,857 units.

In third place is the company Lexus, which in the second quarter of 2020 was able to sell 50,456 cars. Tesla ranks fourth with 36,800 cars sold, while Audi completes the top five for the US market with 34,843 cars sold.
