BMW 3 Series Takes Sales Crown in 2012 for Compact Luxury Sports Sedans

COMMENTS

The BMW 3 Series has taken the sales crown for the compact luxury sports sedan segment for the year 2012. BMW sold 99,602 3 Series in 2012 compared to 81,697 C-Class sold by Mercedes Benz. The 3 Series figure includes sales of the E92, E93, F30 and F31 models.

BMW managed this feat even with some supply constraints on the F30 3 Series experienced during earlier parts of 2012.

Here is the full list of the segment's sales figures.

Impressive. Cudos! I would've thought the A4 would've been a lot more, but Audi's bark is more than their bite apparently. Still want an RS4!

I would say the E90 models, because I can count on one hand how many F30s I've seen on the road in 2012. Also my CA told me he has sold more E90s.

I had the exact same thought. Maybe the 3-er is now over done.
