I have thought for a while a twin turbo V6 S-class at $8,000 would help steal sales off teh A8 and 7-series.  That big sedan segment is shrinking, they shouldshoot to drive the competition out.  They did the V6 with the SL.

 

The E-class/CLS is back up, while all the others in that segment are down.   C-class had a huge year last year, but I am a little surprised it is struggling this year, yes crossovers are hot, but they should still be able to hit 6,000 a month, if the 3/4 series can do over 10,000.

I just realized the bottom feeder 'GLA' sound like it should slot between the 'GL' & 'GLS'.

So little rhyme or reason to the Daimler model naming system.

So far, the crossovers are barely holding the line against the steep slide in car sales.

No rhyme or reason to A-class is A segment, C-class is C segment and E-class is D/E segment?  Pretty straight forward.  Sedan sales are down at every brand, the E-class might save their sedan sales with the new model, the growth is in the crossover line.

So the E Class is the only sedan with a year over gain for April. Seems to fit the pattern of every other make out there. Maybe some don't care about the best either.

Consumers have no idea what 'C segment is or means.

All they understand is; more letters equal higher models, IE; GL > GLA > GLS. THAT, at least, makes sense on paper.

Good thing they don't sell a GL anymore then.

 

This was Mercedes best April ever, and they have been selling cars since 1886 when they invented cars.  In 130 Aprils of selling cars, this past month surpassed them all.  Quite an achievement to have a 130 year history and be at the top of your game.

My question is, why is Smart still in business in the US? Clearly no one wants them.

CAFE.

 

Good thing it isn't too reliant on volume because Smart has no business being sold in this country since clearly nobody wants them. CAFE or not, that POS is inexcusable.

Weird enough, there's one asshole in my town who has one. I hate that car so damn much. Spend like 13-15k on a Smart? Why not go to a Chevy or Ford dealer and pick up a Fiesta, Sonic, or Spark?!?!? 

 

Edit: Sorry Smart cars START at 15k. HA.

There is no GL anymore though. All SUVs as GL(A, C, E, S - to correspond to their car counterpart) and cars are.. uhh.. C, E,..oh yeah alphabetic order..lol

CAFE.

 

Their CAFE score is probably junk too because they're so small and don't get any better fuel mileage than a Fiesta/Spark/Sonic/Versa...etc. 

 

Fuel economy of a Smart car:

Manual trans - 32/39/35(city/highway/combined)

Auto trans - 34/39/36

 

Ford Fiesta 1.0:

32/45

 

Chevy Spark:

30/41

 

Nissan Versa:

31/40

 

Nissan Sentra:

30/40

 

Chevy Sonic:

29/40

 

An Altima will get 39mpg highway! That's only 3 automakers. And the Sonic, Spark, Versa, Fiesta all start cheaper than a Smart car and the Sentra starts at 16k and change. The Smart car is a joke.

Oh I agree 100%. I get their purpose in Europe but when larger Civics and Corollas are killing them in MPGs and cars like the Sonic and Fiesta being much better looking AND larger as well, I cannot fathom why anyone would choose a Smart. On top of that, they are horribly unreliable. Only Fiat has a worse reputation in that department.

Oh I doubt many out side of us crazies that know what the deal is with them. I tried to explain to the gf the new system and she just didn't get it or why they are doing it. 

 

I understand and like the tweak but not everybody will, and I understand that view as well.

Almost all luxury car makers are doing kinda lacklustre recently in their sales figures.

Yes, if highest April sales volume in 130 years is lackluster.

      Japan is a notorious market for American automakers to make a dent in. Ford called it quits last year, while GM sells a meager number of models; Cadillac sold 327 and Chevrolet moved 373 models last year. Critics say "nontariff barriers" are the key reason as to why Detroit hasn't been able to make any headway. Talk with people in Japan and it is a different story, there is still a perception of American models having poor quality and having to fork out a fair amount of cash to keep them maintained.
      But there is an exception. Jeep has been able to carve out a nice niche in Japan's marketplace. The brand is consistently in the top 10 of foreign automakers and sales have been climbing. 2017 is on track to be the eighth consecutive year of sales growth in the country. Through August, Jeep moved 6,344 models.
      But getting to this point took a lot of work and money.
      "We have to spend money and engineering hours to do it, but we think it's worth it," said FCA Japan CEO Pontus Haggstrom to Automotive News.
      "They are things that make our jobs harder and make it more expensive and time consuming to bring cars to Japan. But are they trade barriers? My honest opinion is, no. Are they excuses for why I can't sell or succeed in Japan? No."
      Jeep has been making efforts to make their models more appealing to Japanese customers.
      Tweaking drivetrains to qualify for Japan's eco-car incentives Offering right-hand drive models Equipping models with folding side mirrors and factory-installed Japanese navigation systems. Doubling their marketing budget since 2010 Refurbishing or redesigning more than 50 showrooms by 2018 The last one is important as previous Jeep dealers in the country were basically what you find in dealers in the U.S.
      "It's more about the brand and less about the origin," says Haggstrom.
      Jeep also has an ace up its sleeve that many automakers wished they had, brand equity.
      "The image of American cars as low-quality still persists here, even though a bit underserved. But Jeep has the most brand equity of any American brand. Japan shows it has a global following," said Christopher Richter, an auto analyst with CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets in Tokyo.
