I liked the Chrysler pentastar. The replacement for it,the oval with wings, looks like it belongs on a flight attendant's uniform.
I also like the cleaned up Oldsmobile rocket logo of the 80s and 90s. And I did like the Saturn logo.I agree with just about everyone else, the Hyundai and Kia logos stink.

I always loved the Saturn logo and I also like the Subaru logo.

Both logos are very simple and understated but attractive and catch your attention.

Gotta love the graphic simplicity, power and elegance of Mercedes Benz three pointed star and the spinning propeller of BMW.

Really? No letters in Toyota log. This is ignorant statement.

In 1990, Toyota debuted the three overlapping Ellipses logo on American vehicles. The Toyota Ellipses symbolize the unification of the hearts of our customers and the heart of Toyota products. The background space represents Toyota's technological advancement and the boundless opportunities ahead.

It also looks like a candle light in a spherical glass jar. Don't see nothing wrong with it.
Lines are smooth, clear, and transparent. Took a good artist to come up with it.

I am not a fan of Cadillac's new logo, (removing the wreath from the crest.) I am sorry , that is a package deal having both of them together.

Basically the Chevy Bowtie of American makers. With them having Chevy performance parts cheaper than others it became the performance leader when a teen.

I am indifferent about all of them except:

Good: Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari
Bad: Chevy bowtie (especially since they are making it larger than ever on front grills), Lincoln (looks just old)

So ugly that its in a class of its own: KIA. What an unoriginal, boring, uninspiring piece of garbage logo.

I like the simplicity and symmetry of the number 3 displayed in the Mercedes and Mitsubishi logos which makes them the best.

Hyundai and Kia look like knock offs. Hyundai of Honda's and KIA of Ford's.

I do not like the new Cadillac logo without the wreath.

I can't think of any other logos that jump out to me as special or noteworthy except Buick's logo of 3 shields is close to being great. Infiniti's logo has potential but the kid in me just thinks Pac-Man is taking a dirtnap.

Actually that's a throw back to the old 40s Chrysler logo


1940s
