The New Audi Q3 Is Driving Big Sales

The Audi Q3 has hit the sweet spot of one of the world's hottest auto segments -- compact luxury SUVs. Photo credit: Audi.

Volkswagen (NASDAQOTH: VLKAY  ) was the most profitable big automaker in the world last year, trouncing even the two rivals that outsold it, Toyota (NYSE: TM  ) and General Motors (NYSE: GM  ) . A big part of that profit was driven by VW's wildly successful luxury brand, Audi.

Audi's clean designs and top-tier interiors have made it a favorite in markets around the world -- including China, where it has become the leading luxury-car brand. Its sales have continued to grow this year, with the Q3 SUV driving big gains recently. In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear looks at the drivers behind Audi's latest sales gains -- and at how they compare with VW's other big luxury brand, Porsche.

Speaking of Audi in China, there's good reason to believe that the most successful investors over the next few decades will be those with exposure to China's massive and growing population of domestic consumers. And there are few things these consumers are likely to purchase with more enthusiasm than cars and trucks. In this brand-new free report, our analysts get out in front of this trend by identifying two automakers that are poised to surge along with China's middle class. If you want to be among the smart investors who get rich from this growing trend, then you'd be well advised to instantly download our free report on the topic by clicking here now.
