DETROIT (WKZO) -- A forecast on automotive sales for 2013 by R.L. Polk and Company is likely making automakers smile today.

The company predicts that sales will surpass the 15-million mark in 2013 which will be an increase of over six-percent compared to 2012.  The report estimates new vehicle registrations will be up thanks to the number of redesigned or refurbished cars and light trucks in the market.

Last year marked the best sales performance for the auto industry since 2007, but this report indicates the market will continue to grow since the recession.
