The three luxury German competitors have revealed their total sales numbers for 2023 and the crew from Munich has taken the top spot.

With approximately 1.9 million vehicles sold in 2023, Audi trailed behind BMW by over 350,000 units.
The high-performance branch, Audi Sport, shipped around 48,000 units in 2023 whereas BMW M GmbH did over 202,000 but this number includes M Performance cars while Audi does not include anything other than the RS models.
