Thanks to a sales surge as a result of new compact models, Mercedes-Benz outsold crosstown rival Audi in November, taking the second place spot in the luxury sales race behind BMW that month. 

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.
