No change in the compact class either. The VW Golf remains first, with the Mercedes A-Class and the Opel Astra taking the other places this month.

Mercedes CLS takes over luxury class

VW Passat before Mercedes C-Class and Audi A4 is the order in the Middle class. With the BMW 3 Series, buyers seem to be lurking for the successor and are exercising reluctance to buy.

On the other hand, the upper middle class sees the BMW 5 Series at the forefront again in September. Behind the Bayer come the Mercedes E-Class and the Audi A6. In the upper class, the Mercedes CLS displaces the BMW 7 Series from the top. That, in turn, can only assert itself more ahead of the Audi A8 with a registration, closely followed by the Porsche Panamera.

The picture at the top of the off-road vehicles remains unchanged. The VW Tiguan is still number one. Followed by the BMW duo X1 and X3. The Audi Q5 fell a lot from the top 3 to fifth place.

Mercedes SLK remains king of sports cars

Third strongest force was the Porsche 911. In the minivans, the Opel Meriva stayed ahead of the Nissan Qashqai. The new third was the Seat Altea.

VW Touran is also the king of large vans in September. Between him and his corporate brother Sharan, however, the Opel Zafira moved up to second place. When it comes to utilities, the VW Caddy continues to take the lead ahead of the VW T5. The Ford Transit Connect came in third.
