WOW, that is Ugly at MB, clearly their sales are not taking off even with new models. Really surprised that they have not killed off some models by now even though they say they are going too.

Up 4.8% for the month, down 0.5% for the year in a market that is shrinking.  

SLC is a dead car, current GLA is probably out of production and new CLA just hit dealers in September, the SUVs are on fire, and they have GLB and EQ C coming to next year. I wish more people bought the sedans, but people are just leaving sedans sadly.

Final number is 4.5% for the whole company and a rare up when the last big portion of the year it has been negative.

If you want to include Vans, they are down 0.1% for the year and ahead of BMW.  But I don't like to compare MB total vs BMW since it isn't fair to throw Vans in.  

Infiniti, Lexus and Acura are suffering huge losses, when GM and Ford numbers come out tomorrow, I bet Lincoln and Cadillac are as well.   If Mercedes even ends the year even that is good when most of the luxury market is down double digits.

List of Mercedes models with positive gains for the year:

SLC

AMG-GT

GLC

G-Class

Vans

 

List of Mercedes models with negative gains:

Lets just say it's a much longer list.

 

 

But yeah, Mercedes is doing AWESOME! The Best or Nothing!

GLE and GLS could finish up for the year, they were hurt by model changeover and no inventory.  Look at the GLE now with full inventory.  GLS and CLA are just hitting dealers now.   Sedans are down every where, 3,00 E-class is great when Lexus sold 350 GS’s.  And Mercedes has EQ C, EQ B, GLB and Maybach SUV next year since all people want are more SUVs.

Good thing you explained that. It seems like Mercedes is the only with older models on the way out, model changeovers, or any other number of excuses you have given Mercedes whenever things are less than stellar for them. 
 

And if all people want are more SUVs, why are Mercedes SUVs showing a decline (save for the G Class)?

Thank you Captain Correcty. If you actually read the post above that, you would have seen that I listed the GLC under models with a positive gain.

I explained why GLE and GLS were down for the year, model change, notice the GLE has had increased the past few months.

GLE up 27% this month, yes people want their SUV’s.

That's because they can be recorded much faster on one hand lol.

"Explain" it all you want. All you can reasonably determine is that folks want the GLE and not much else. Fact.

I don't know, more than 52,000 GLCs have been sold year to date. I wouldn't say people only want the GLE.

Cadillac up was a surprise to me because all the sedans are down and XT5 is down 15%.  I didn’t think Escalade would be up with new competition in the segment, and XT4 is making up for lost ground elsewhere.

      Mercedes-Benz went the unconventional route and debuted their new GLA SUV completely online this morning. The new GLA comes on a new platform and changes up the dimensions a bit to improve interior space.  Overall length is down 0.6 inches, but height has increased 4.1 inches, and wheelbase is up 1.1 inches while width is up 1.2 inches. This translates to some minor improvements in most, but not all, interior dimensions.  (Dimensions chart on Page 2)
      The GLA initially will come in three forms, the GLA 250, GLA 250 4Matic, and AMG GLA 35.  The 250 and 250 4matic some with the same powertrain, a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder producing 221 horsepower at 5,500 RPM and 258 lb-ft of torque at 1,620 - 4,000 RPM.  Power is sent to the wheels via an 8-speed DCT.
      The AMG GLA 35 comes with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with 302 horsepower at 5,800 RPM and 295 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 - 4,000 RPM. And uses a modified version of the 8-speed DCT. Zero to 60 is estimated at 5.0 seconds.
      GLA 250 models equipped with 4Matic come with an Off-Road Engineering Package as standard.  It is an extra drive mode that adapts the characteristics of the 4Matic system and changes power delivery and ABS intervention.  The gauge cluster will present an animation of gradient, inclination angle, and technical settings to help the driver through the situation. 
      4Matic has been updated from being hydraulically activated to electro-mechanically activated.  In normal mode, the system splits torque 80:20 front:rear.  Sport mode changes that ratio to 70:30, while off-road mode moves it to 50:50. Being electro-mechanically operated allows the 4Matic system to be more efficient by not having to drive hydraulic pumps. 
      The GLA 250 is available with a host of driver assistance packages. They include:
      Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC with the functions: braking for stationary vehicles, extended automatic restarting in traffic jams in conjunction with Active Parking Assist and navigation, activation of "Gliding" in the ECO drive mode, Active Steering Assist with the functions: Active Emergency Braking Assist – with automatic unlocking and placement of an SOS call to the Mercedes-Benz emergency call center after the vehicle has come to a stop (depending on country) Active Lane Change Assist in conjunction with navigation, Emergency lane function: in freeway traffic jams at speeds below approx. 37 mph. Active Speed Limit Assist with reaction to changes in speed limits in conjunction with Traffic Sign Assist, Route-based speed adjustment when approaching bends, roundabouts, toll stations, T-junctions and before leaving highways – reduction of vehicle speed when encountering the end of a traffic jam, in conjunction with navigation, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function, PRE-SAFE PLUS: can detect a potential rear impact. If the danger of a collision persists, the system can also firmly apply the brakes of the stationary vehicle, minimizing the risk of whiplash injuries by reducing the forward jolt caused by an impact from the rear. The interior of the GLA is quite similar to the A-Class sedan. Mercedes MBUX is there and can be activated by voice simply by saying "Hey Mercedes". 
      AMG 35
      The GLA AMG 35 gets an AMG tuned suspension, including an optional ride control system that allows the driver to select between three different drive modes.  A high performance braking system with 13.8 inch disks up front and 13.0 inch disks in the rear is included. There is a speed-sensitive variable ratio steering that changes the amount of assistance offered at different speeds. The AMG also gets a special exhaust system with a gas flap to change the sound dynamics of the car depending on mode, engine speed, and engine load. 
      The exterior of the AMG GLA 35 gets a different front fascia from the regular GLA 250, fitting in with the rest of the AMG lineup. 
      The GLA 250 goes on sale Summer of 2020 with the AMG following after that.

      Mercedes-Benz is trying something new with the debut of the GLA. Rather than holding an event, they are doing an online reveal of the new GLA class. We got a preview of the new GLA in the form of a sketch released from Mercedes.  Ignore the ridiculous sized wheels and you'll get a good view of what it will look like.  
      The new GLA rides on a new platform, the same that underpins the new A-Class, CLA, and GLB. That means, yes, it is a front-wheel drive model, but expect 4matic to be available as well.  The overall size of the car will be reduced very slightly, but the wheelbase has been increased.  This should increase legroom for passengers, but we don't have any of those dimensions yet. The roof will be slightly taller too. Unlike its predecessor, it will not be shared with Infiniti to create another QX30. 
      Front end styling won't be that different from the current A-Class or CLA and expect the interior to be very similar, if not the same, as what you'd get in an A-Class. Powertrains will be the same as well, with an AMG GLA 45 coming.  Rumor has it a hybrid version could also be in the works.
