BMW M outsells Mercedes-AMG globally in 2020 – but AMG remains on top in Australia

BMW M has beaten Mercedes-AMG in the international performance-car sales race in 2020, despite a global pandemic – however, the brands' Australian arms tell a contrasting tale. BMW M shifted 144,218 vehicles globally in 2020, compared to 125,129 Mercedes-AMGs – a 6 per cent increase for BMW, but a 5.3 per cent decrease for Mercedes, indicating a far more decisive sales win over BMW's 3693-unit lead over AMG in 2019.

VFACTS 2020: Toyota Camry top-selling mid-size sedan for 27th year

Even at the height of their powers, the longest winning streak for the Holden Commodore or Ford Falcon was 15 years – when the Commodore led the market until 2011. In the decades prior, both brands swapped the lead every few years or so.
