In 2014, BMW’s 3 Series touring sales account for a share of 58 percent

In 2014, BMW sold 56,414 3 Series models in Germany. Mercedes-Benz sold 60,350 units of their C-Class while the Audi A4 went to 48,278 customers.

The days when the 3 Series sedan and touring‘s sales were divided among themselves are over as well. For the first, the 3 Series family is offered in three variants, counting the new Gran Turismo. Considered initially a niche car, the 3 Series GT accounted for 15 percent of the 3 Series sales, only 11 percent lower than the sedan’s sales. With 8,591 units sold in 2014, the car can already be considered a success for the company.

Opposed to the American market, Germany remains an important market for the touring (sport wagon) sales. Last year, BMW’s 3 Series touring sales accounted for a share of 58 percent, more than double the sedans. One reason for the large delta is the 3 Series touring car fleets acquired by German banks and large corporations.

This summer, BMW will debut the 3 Series sedan and touring facelift, followed a few months later by the GT LCI.

    The Touring can be a very elegant car indeed. I quite like the Audi Concept that they just launched. BMW should make something like that instead of trying to be conservative! BMW needs a design shake up!

    • Guest says:

      Conservative? Every actual BMW looks far more aggressive and emotional than any other Audi. They are just boring, not ugly but boring. (except special cars like i8, R8 or M/RS models) And like you said, its just a concept… No one knows how the next BMWs will look like, maybe a 8/9series or other newer ones.

      • Lawrence says:

        I’d love to see the 8/9 series!! The sports car for next year would be fantastic if it is the M1!!! Can you imagine that! Earning back some of BMW’s credibility!
