The CLA, with its very non-luxury $29,900 base price, clearly wasn’t the only car helping out the entry-level premium field in 2013. Cadillac added more than 31,000 sales with the ATS. Sales of the 3-Series and its renamed 4-Series two-door offspring were up by 19,919 sales.
C-Class sales have fallen every month since the CLA arrived, but ended the year up 8%, or 6554 units. Sales of the Audi A4/A5 family were up by 4994 units. The new IS helped Lexus collect 7309 more entry-level rear/all-wheel-drive buyers. (Lexus ES sales were up 29%, as well.)
Meanwhile, the highest-profile midsize luxury cars – E-Class, 5-Series, A6 – were up 7%, 0.1%, and 18%, respectively.
