The good numbers keep on coming for Audi of America.
In November, a month where many automakers were flat or even down, Audi reports their numbers rise 12 percent to a total of 19,195 deliveries. For the year, Audi sales are up 6.7 percent, with just under 200,000 vehicles sold.

One new item that helped in November was the A5 Sportback, a new arrival in the U.S. that totaled 1,130 sales.

The biggest sales increases came on the SUV side, with Q5 sales increasing 31 percent (5,467 sold) and Q7 sales growing 31 percent (3,292 sold).

"Positive consumer response to the Q7, new Q5 and new-to-the U.S. A5 Sportback shows that Audi's award-winning engineering and technology can succeed in a highly competitive market," said Cian O'Brien, chief operating officer, Audi of America. "Encouraged by robust consumer demand and our annual Season of Audi Sales event, we're positioned for a strong finish to 2017."

Consumer demand for the new Q5 and Q7 helped drive November's sales increase.  Deliveries of the Q5 were up 31 percent to 5,467. The Q7 deliveries increased to 3,292, and have now increased 23 percent year-to-date. SUV sales for Audi increased 23 percent to 10,351.
