If the XTS can vault so close to the front of it's segment, a proper Caddy flagship should have no trouble keeping up with the S-Class and 7-Series.
      No joke there. A healthy percentage of GM's cars have volume toward the top of their classes while at the same time commanding toward the top of their classes' average price. The Cruze is a good example. I've heard it is consistently sold at higher price levels than many competitors, and at the same time it gets close to highest volume.

      Last year, 38% of sales of the 200 was to fleet and 66.2% for the Avenger.

      I wouldn't rely on one month of sales data since sales can vary quite widely month to month.

      The 7 Series did nearly 1k units in Jan. and over 1k in Feb., March, May and July with July being 1,696 (the month of the infamous inflating of sales by BMW).

      7.1% for the C Class in 2011; the 3 Series is around 2% fleet.

      Why you wouldn’t (buy an Optima SX):

      Because you have your eyes on the Frigidaire Limited Edition Camry that you saw last weekend at the neighborhood Autoplex
