Best 15 luxury autos with the highest sales in the USA in March 2015

The top among all luxurious cars in the US is the BMW’s 3-Series and 4-Series. Compared to the previous year, the number of cars sold has increased by 47%, and it amounts to 14,835 copies sold in the United States.

The second place in the list is taken by Lexus RX. While the fourth generation of this model was recently announced at the auto show in New York, Lexus RX stays among the most frequently sold luxury vehicles in the US despite the number of its sales has decreased by 8% this March.

The sales of the RX model ramped up by 5% this year, although this car has faced competition from the NX model, which takes the fifteenth place in the rating of the best-selling autos.

Not only Lexus introduced new autos recently. So did Cadillac. This company has presented its CT6 that should not be confused with CTS. As for the Cadillac’s presence in the top, it is represented with SRX crossover. However, generally Cadillac lost 26% in sales in March.

When it comes to expensive luxury autos priced over $45,000, four SUVs by GM are among nine best-selling cars in March.
