D-segment (or large cars) is defined by the European Commission[1] as the fourth segment in European market car classification. It represents 8% of the cars sold in Europe in 2017.

Mercedes C-Class is the most sold model, although being a premium. Volkswagen Passat and Audi A4 are following.

BMW 3 Series is another significant seller of the segment.

New entries in the segment are Lexus RC, Infiniti Q60, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Volkswagen Arteon, and Genesis G70, all premiums.

Specs and trim-levels vary a lot in these cars. The compact executive cars generally have a sporty drive and are very driver-orientated, while large family cars or mid-size cars are geared towards every-day use for transporting people and other goods. As with E-segment cars, they can come in several body-types, coupés being common with the compact executive cars, and station wagons for practical family-use.

Typical D-segment cars include compact executive cars such as Acura TLX, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS, Genesis G70, Infiniti Q50, Jaguar XE, Lexus IS, Lincoln MKZ, Mercedes-Benz C-class and Volvo S60 as well as mid-size cars such as Citroen C5, Ford Mondeo, Honda Accord, Hyundai i40, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Mazda 6, Nissan Altima, Opel Insignia, Peugeot 508, Proton Perdana, Renault Talisman, Subaru Legacy, Toyota Camry and VW Passat.
