LUXURY: Mercedes jumps out to big early lead over BMW, Lexus
Mercedes-Benz jumped out to an early lead in the race for U.S. luxury auto sales supremacy, posting a record January after winning the crown last year for the first time since 2013.

Mercedes sold 25,527 cars and light trucks in the U.S. last month, a 3.5 percent increase from a year earlier, according to a statement. Following a year in which premium car models lost market share to light trucks, the brand scored significant gains with sedans last month, as the C-class jumped 27 percent and E-class surged 49 percent.

Mercedes-Benz's rivals weren’t as fortunate last month. BMW increased sales just 0.1 percent to 18,109, while Toyota Motor Corp.’s Lexus plunged 26 percent to 15,572. The results exclude BMW’s Mini cars and Daimler’s work trucks and Smart cars, because they aren’t luxury vehicles.

A bad month for the industry, I wander if the market is taking a breather from the volume pushed out in the December end of year deals.

And thank you TSX69 for gathering the numbers.

That is shocking if that number is real. I just don't get why vehicles like that can be so popular when almost no one who buys and owns them hauls or pulls anything or goes off road.

I guess for a overall type of vehicle that is so clunky and unattractive it is not the worst looking big SUV, it does have a pretty nice interior but I can't imagine driving something like that every day.

I rarely see them on the road so I don't know where they are all going. Maybe Infiniti had some kind of blowout sale/lease for them in January.

I was really surprised that after the beating Acura took for the "beak", Lexus took off in this direction. Every time I see one of the new designs, I look to see if there is an alien (I don't mean foreign born, but real outer space, green horns, big eyes etc.) driver behind the wheel :-(

Apparently a supply issue but that excuse typically only works for Honda.

“January proved to be a challenging month driven by limited LUV availability and the strength of our December results.
“Our outstanding December of nearly 41,000 resulted in a low days’ supply for our core models, especially in metro markets. We are continuing to replenish dealer inventories and expect healthy levels in February. Our dealers did achieve a best-ever January in L/Certified sales with more than 7,900 sales.”

Because it's perfect for the mommy/family with a lot of kids, gear, friends, etc. They don't pull/tow anything...unless the husband takes it out after a snowfall, ties a rope/sled to the back and pulls the kids around the neighborhood. :) I've honestly only seen women driving this vehicle.

The outside actually isn't too bad, IMO, but it does look huge and the interior is very nice. I've never ridden in one, but can imagine it is probably a very nice, soft ride and perfect for the runs to the soccer field or to "Whole Paycheck" for groceries.

That said, they must have been blowing out 2016's or something as the Feb lease deal they have on their website now is $750-$799 a month with $6500 down...ouch. Insane to put that much down on a lease.

As always, styling is subjective, and subjectively I think these things are hideously styled. Also, the packaging is not very good for such a huge vehicle. They are for sure not the "practical" choice. Terrible fuel economy, sub-par interior space, massive bulk (parking issues).

It and the Armada are inefficient in their interior packaging as well as their fuel efficiency because it has been around since 2002 without much change, for the prices they're charging, they're just terrible value.

No wander Nissan used the Patrol as the new Armada. I guess its assembled in Japan, so Nissan gets to use under utilized production on a paid for platform. Qx80 and Armada are just printing money for Nissan in the states. No wander they offer Altimas for $6K off.

True about styling, and it certainly wouldn't be my first choice for a large SUV. Funny thing is, in my unscientific circle of soccer mom's that I know, almost all of them like the "boxy" look like this for SUV's. I would imagine practicality or economy is the last thing on a purchaser's mind for this vehicle...pricing is crazy. I'd be all over a Land Cruiser/LX470/MB GL before this thing for the $$. Oh well, there are probably some happy salesmen out there from last month with those numbers.

Honda and Toyota will not cede this segment - it is still vastly important (with good products). Naturally the CR-V does better in the winter, but Honda's sedans are equally important.

January 2017:

Accord 19,536
Civic 23,095
CR-V 29,287

2016 total:

Accord 345,225
Civic 366,927
CR-V 357,335

The fact that these big 3 are about to share a common (lauded) platform and efficient turbo powertrains is nuts... get ready to rake in the profits. (Also doesn't require as much "engineering effort," to your point.)

This segment has taken a beaten by the CUV freight train. One has to wander how much engineering effort will the automakers put in their next gen efforts compared to CUVs. This fall when the new Accord, Altima and Camry debut, we will know.

Honda and Toyota will not cede this segment - it is still vastly important (with good products). Naturally the CR-V does better in the winter, but Honda's sedans are equally important.

Good point. Not only more profit, but less upfront R&D $$$ means more room in the budget for standard tech features.

Infiniti moved 4400 of these last month??




That is shocking if that number is real. I just don't get why vehicles like that can be so popular when almost no one who buys and owns them hauls or pulls anything or goes off road.

I guess for a overall type of vehicle that is so clunky and unattractive it is not the worst looking big SUV, it does have a pretty nice interior but I can't imagine driving something like that every day.

I rarely see them on the road so I don't know where they are all going. Maybe Infiniti had some kind of blowout sale/lease for them in January.



Because it's perfect for the mommy/family with a lot of kids, gear, friends, etc. They don't pull/tow anything...unless the husband takes it out after a snowfall, ties a rope/sled to the back and pulls the kids around the neighborhood. :) I've honestly only seen women driving this vehicle.

The outside actually isn't too bad, IMO, but it does look huge and the interior is very nice. I've never ridden in one, but can imagine it is probably a very nice, soft ride and perfect for the runs to the soccer field or to "Whole Paycheck" for groceries.

That said, they must have been blowing out 2016's or something as the Feb lease deal they have on their website now is $750-$799 a month with $6500 down...ouch. Insane to put that much down on a lease.



As always, styling is subjective, and subjectively I think these things are hideously styled. Also, the packaging is not very good for such a huge vehicle. They are for sure not the "practical" choice. Terrible fuel economy, sub-par interior space, massive bulk (parking issues).



True about styling, and it certainly wouldn't be my first choice for a large SUV. Funny thing is, in my unscientific circle of soccer mom's that I know, almost all of them like the "boxy" look like this for SUV's. I would imagine practicality or economy is the last thing on a purchaser's mind for this vehicle...pricing is crazy. I'd be all over a Land Cruiser/LX470/MB GL before this thing for the $$. Oh well, there are probably some happy salesmen out there from last month with those numbers.


It's popular with the folks on car allowances and you see them in the country club golf course parking lots. The weird part is once you find one you'll see several of them.

I think the sweet spot for the upper-class luxury SUV market in the US had been the loaded Yukon Denali range, more so than the Escalades, but it seems the most recent restyle turned the big GM trucks into square looking boxes. It's strange but add in the fact that GM seems to be flipping its customer base a little by holding the line on pricing as best they can and the easy second choice becomes this Infiniti. I think I'd rather have a Range Rover.

Subaru continues to grow share with the Outback. 13,186 units sold last month, up 18 percent from a year ago. What group should it go in? The one with the CRV?

The only other wagon that I can think of is the Golf:

OutBack 13,186 +17.8%
Golf SportWagen 2,047 +189.9%


I ponder why there are not more wagons out there. I am sure that they all see the OutBack's #s. Really surprised that Toyota gave up on the Venza as they seem to want to be in as many as segments as they can (especially compared to Honda).
