From January to September, Mercedes-Benz Cars has sold 1,136,420 cars, up 8.9%. They were split between 1,062,638 sales for Mercedes-Benz, up 10.1%, and 73,782 sales for Smart, down 6.6%. It is confident that it will have record sales for the year.

While cars like the E-Class and S-Class grab headlines, Mercedes’ compacts are grabbing sales. Its compact range sold a total of 267,467 cars in the last nine months, up 68.3% from the year before. The introduction of the GLA-ClassGLA-ClassMercedes-Benz GLA-ClassGermany, 2013 > present32 versions

SUVs are also still a major Mercedes market with 236,129 sales since the beginning of the year, up 17.3% over last year.

Smart sales continue to be a problem, but the company is introducing new two-door and four-door models next year.
