IF the stories are to be believed that the motoring industry is heading for meltdown, then somebody better have a quiet word with Audi.
Recession, credit crunch and economic downturn are clearly not words being banded about in the German giant’s boardroom.
While it is fair to say that some marques are experiencing tough trading times, it is proving the complete opposite for Audi.
Life has never been so good for the premium luxury brand as they remain on track to sell more than a million cars globally this year.
And more than a 10th of these will be found on British roads.
Just when you thought that it couldn’t get any rosier for the leading motor manufacturer, well, it does, with the arrival of their best model to date, the Q5.
Having driven the Q5, I can comfortably predict that it is going to be a massive seller and will certainly double that target figure.
Just as when the TT coupe first appeared on the scene and there was a queue of buyers a mile long, the newcomer will undoubtedly become the must-have motoring fashion accessory.
