Audi Q5

Audi is almost considered the Subaru of the luxury market segment with its popular quattro all-wheel-drive system. No luxury automaker builds or sells more all-wheel-drive vehicles worldwide than Audi. During the first 8 months of 2009, Audi built a total of 190,500 vehicles with quattro all-wheel-drive.

The recently introduced Audi Q5, which recently tested, is the most successful SUV in its class worldwide – selling a total of 63,119 units in the first 8 months of 2009.

Audi confirmed today that it will expand its market position as the worldwide all-wheel-drive leader with the new Q3 SUV model.

“Starting in 2011, there will be a new member of the Audi SUV family: the Audi Q3, for which the company expects high unit sales,” Audi said in a statement.

The Q3 will fit under the Q5 in Audi’s vehicle lineup. Technical and availability details will be announced closer to launch.
