Toyota might be the biggest automaker in the world, but General Motors and Volkswagen are the two most popular light vehicle manufacturers in the world's fastest growing auto market, China, and both are in a hot heat to claim top spot.

Automotive News is reporting that Volkswagen will sell 2.7 million new vehicles in China next year, stating that Audi sedans are popular with Chinese bureaucrats, but that the luxury brand's new Q3 compact crossover is selling well too, as well as the automaker's Skoda Octavia and its namesake brand's Golf and Santana models.

GM is also expected to move 2.7 million new vehicles in China during 2013, and will introduce three Opel models as well as its new Cadillac XTS luxury sedan in order to do so.

The Chinese market is expected to grow by 10-percent this year, a far cry from the shrinkage that's going on in Europe.
