Mercedes-Benz gained ground for a fourth consecutive month against larger luxury-car competitors Bayerische Motoren Werke AG and Audi as the CLA coupe fueled demand for the German company’s compact models.
Mercedes-Benz gained ground against larger luxury-car competitors Bayerische Motoren Werke AG and Audi AG last month as the introduction of the CLA coupe helped demand almost double for the company’s compact models.
