Mercedes-Benz May Sales 12.9% Higher than April

Mercedes-Benz reported yet another strong sales month, with May sales of 29,299 cars, 2,848 vans, and 420 smarts, bringing the USA total to 32,567 vehicles sold for the month.

The best performers were by far the automaker’s larger models as well as Mercedes-AMG’s high-performance cars. Taking the lead was the C-Class luxury sedan with 6,954 units sold, followed by the GLC-Class luxury crossover with 4,183 units sold, and the GLE-Class luxury SUV with 4,003 units sold. Meanwhile, high-performance models were up 34.6% from last year.

Mercedes-Benz May sales were 12.9% higher than in April and particularly successful in China, where they increased by more than a third within five months. In Great Britain, Italy, and Spain too, sales increased around 14%.

So far this year, Mercedes has already sold 818,000 new cars, up 12.3% compared to the same period last year; and it’s only looking up from there.

“Sales continue at a steady pace in the second-quarter,” said Dietmar Exler, president and CEO of MBUSA. “Excitement is building as we look toward the coming months with the launch of three new dream cars, including the S-Class Cabriolet, SL and SLC Roadsters and the all-new E-Class Sedan.”

2016 Mercedes GLC300 SUV Praised for Great Quality

The Mercedes GLC300 SUV is now available, and that means the former GLK’s spiritual heir is open to be test-driven and reviewed by industry critics. So far, everyone seems to love the GLC300, particularly focusing on its plush interior and luxurious driving experience. Plus, with a price tag of under $40,000 for the entry-level trim with rear-wheel drive, the GLC300 is unusually affordable for a member of the luxury SUV segment.

The large windows and thin pillars of the GLC300 provide excellent visibility and lend an extra air of spaciousness to the already roomy and comfortable interior, which offers premium comforts and amenities such as soft-touch, padded seats, and upscale insulation against wind and engine noise. Plus, since the GLC300 uses the luxury sedan C-Class as a base, that sensation of smooth, car-like maneuverability and performance extends to the SUV. It’s apparent that Mercedes didn’t hold back when making this masterpiece.

 

The Mercedes GLC300 SUV is, overall, highly customizable, with a number of standard and available features and luxuries. These include everything from standard forward collision warning with automatic brakes to optional leather seats, though the high-quality brown leatherette upholstery comes with the vehicle. That would be too good to pass up on.
