Winners: VW still dominates because of its strong position in China and Brazil. Tata and BMW follow close behind. Two Chinese automakers you probably haven't heard of before -- Dongfeng, China's fourth largest producer, and Great Wall, its leading producer of SUVs -- break into the top tier.
Losers: Ford finishes well down the list because it only holds 2% of the Chinese market, the world's largest. Toyota and Nissan also score poorly, due to poor products and low market share in China. Peugeot-Citroen and Fiat -- despite making some of the least-expensive, most fuel-thrifty cars anywhere -- rank at the bottom because they lack branding and financial strength.
The Toyota comeback rolls on as the Japanese automaker takes aim at Detroit.
