It looks like trucks and SUVs aren’t the only vehicles that are seeing a sales decline this year. Mercedes-Benz S-Class sales are off 23 percent in the US this year.

The S-Class is responsible for between 20-25 percent of Mercedes pre-tax profits, so a sales decline is definitely something to be worried about.
