There is no particular single software which is used by automobile sector. Every software has a specialty and it is used for that purpose in industries.
For example, Catia is more efficient in surfacing and is preferred in automobile sector usually for body design and related things. However, this doesn't means that its use is limited to only surfacing. There are automobile companies that use Catia for many other purposes also, eg. TATA Motors.
As far as engine design is concerned, I would recommend Pro/E for modelling and ANSYS for simulations. However the same work can be done in Catia and NX also.
