Mercedes sold 133,441 cars and SUVs worldwide in November, while Audi moved 132,050. That is a rise for both brands year-over-year, but neither could catch BMW, which delivered 149,663 vehicles.
In total, BMW has moved 1.49 million vehicles this year, while Audi has delivered 1.44 million. That still leaves Mercedes-Benz in third spot, with 1.32 million vehicles sold in the 11 months.
Though they still trail behind, this is the fifth month in a row that Mercedes-Benz has had more month-over-month growth than either of its German rivals. This can be attributed mainly to the four-door CLA coupe and A-class hatchback.
