Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz brand sales increased 15 percent in February to 120,270, driven by robust demand in Europe and strong sales of its C-class, compact and SUV models.

Sales at the Smart brand, Mercedes-Benz’s city-car unit which has recently revamped its lineup, jumped 30% while demand for the expanded and refreshed range of Mercedes-Benz sedans and sport-utility vehicles rose 14%.

Through February, total brand sales were up 14 percent to 246,135, Daimler said.

Sales of Smart cars increased by 13 percent last month to 8,303, taking two-month results to 16,760, a rise of 21 percent.

February sales at the Mercedes-Benz Car unit were up 15 percent to 128,573. Through February, they rose 15 percent to 262,895.

Daimler said sales were driven by demand for the C class, SUVs and the automaker’s growing lineup of compact cars. Global deliveries of the C class were particularly strong in the first two months, rising 59 percent to 63,878, Daimler said.

Mercedes’ rivals BMW and Audi are expected to publish February sales next week.
