Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, the world’s largest maker of luxury cars, outpaced sales growth at competitors Audi and Mercedes-Benz last month as the revamped 5-Series sedan and new X1 sport-utility vehicle attracted buyers.

Deliveries of BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce models rose 20 percent from a year earlier to 129,014 vehicles in November, the Munich-based automaker said today in a statement. Sales by Volkswagen AG’s Audi division increased 5.2 percent to 87,050 vehicles, the Ingolstadt, Germany-based unit said today. Deliveries by Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz Cars, including the Smart city-car brand, jumped 14 percent to 112,300.
