Here's something that may draw some interesting responses. What are your favorite current vehicle brand-logos?...and/or among those you think are the worst?

I'll start with mine: Those I did not list are all somewhere in the middle.

BEST:

Chevrolet

Worst: Subie or Buick (yawn)

A logo should be elegant but simple and immediately recognizable.

Top 4 Logos (doesn't mean top 4 brands) in no particular order:

Lexus
Mercedes
Audi
BMW
(Honda would by my fifth)

GMC, Ford, Kia, Hyundai are garbage.

I don't know anyone of you here have heard of a Chinese car manufacturer called Chery, but their logo straight up looks like an off-brand version of Infiniti's logo lmao.

I present to you Wuling also known as poorman's Corvette in China. It has become such a meme that Chinese people who own Corvettes in USA often swap out their Corvette badge with this one. The Wuling Hongguang minivan is also a meme car due to its MR layout and an 'overpowered' 100hp engine (for a Kei car) making it a drift machine for ~$9000 (nowadays they even offer a sport model with 145hp 1.5L turbo).

And even more ironically, Wuling has a JV with SAIC-GM.

The Infiniti logo is supposed to evoke Mt. Fuji, which makes a knockoff of it from outside Japan funnier.
Thanks for the info. I wasn't aware of the Fuji connection to the Infiniti logo.

If anything, one might (?) expect Subaru to use it instead of the six-star logo, since its parent corporation is Fuji Heavy Industries, same name as the mountain.

You do know that Subaru is the Japanese name for the Pleiades star cluster right? Also FHI wasn't named after Mount Fuji, your logic makes no sense.
