Audi is closing in on Mercedes-Benz in the small but crucial market for premium cars priced that start below $30,000.

In its first three months on the market, Audi’s A3 outsold the comparable Mercedes entry-level coupe almost 2 to 1, according to researcher Autodata Corp.

In June, the A3’s U.S. sales beat the CLA’s sales 2,452 to 1,658, according to Automotive News data.

CLA sales have dropped in seven of the past eight months, a turnabout from last year, when the sporty four-door pushed Mercedes past BMW to become the U.S. best-seller and the most successful new Mercedes model in two decades.
