Mercedes-Benz is a luxury brand that prides itself on exclusivity and superior performance. Recently, sales for Mercedes-Benz have seen a good surge, raising 18% during the first 5 months of the year. Outselling the other luxury brands with a sales total of 106,364 for January 2012 – May 2012, automotive industry analysts are giving some of the credit to refreshed SUVs and SUV crossovers.
“Mercedes has upped its game,” Rebecca Lindland, an analyst with researcher IHS Automotive, told media. “The refreshes and redesigns they’ve done on their sedans are going to be very nicely complemented by the work they’ve done on their trucks.”
The redesigned M-Class deliveries rose 60% for the first five months of this year, bringing the total to 17,735. Though we won’t know the total for June, with gas prices on the decline, we can expect SUV sales to stay strong. The updated GLK, that has almost 1,000 new pieces, and the brand-new G-Class, will also give Mercedes SUV sales a nice push, continuing the momentum.
