Any regular reader of this blog will realise I am not really that keen on Audis. In that I seem out of step with many who happily part with their hard earned cash for one. For me they lack the pedigree of other premium brands and are essentially tarted up Skodas/VWs. They all look the same and have that unattractive gaping grille.
The fact is they are a big earner for the VW Group, sharing platforms with other brands mentioned already. Looking at data below, the pale blue shading shows increase and yellow the reverse. The new Q3 (pictured above) certainly gave production numbers a boost. Overall a successful year, the premium segment largely immune to the economic downturn anyway.
