"Ford broke out of a downward trend which has been going on for about two years, Volkswagen has been going up. There's actually an ETF on autos which has performed, which has been up for about 23% over the last two months," said Ilan Arbel, a trader for Consilium Securities.

Imperial, which brings in about a quarter of its revenue from selling cars, is up 2.3% at R202.50.
