This poll needs a massive overhaul. Too many options, too broad. Lexus and Scion shouldn't be available. Many of the American and VW brands should be combined (like VW, Skôda, and Seat). The whole thing is just a clusterf*ck of a poll.

Remove the poll and let's talk about what is our favorite.

I would've voted Ford for US, but in the last couple years, they've made their cars all look the same. Nearly identical styling across all the cars, just different body styles and configurations anymore. The new Mustang doesn't look anything more than a sportier coupe version of a Fusion... At least Dodge still has some variation in looks (as well as the Ram being Motor Trend TOTY last 2 years)

Pretty much but since the 70s mustangs have had quite bad styling

Holden aren't European. 
Mini aren't a manufacturer but a sub-brand of BMW.
Vauxhall are a sub-brand of Opel.

Holden is Australian.

I only voted for Ford as my favourite US manufacture, because they are the least worst.

 

My vote for Citroën is most referring to old Citroëns, back when they were ahead of the rest.

I think this poll needs a serious overhaul if it's going to be revived, along the lines of SingingEwe954's suggestion.

But first, is anyone actually interested in the results of this poll? If so I can re-launch it.

You mean the SM?  I'd also say the CX is a good (if not great) Citroën, in its own way.  It managed to be so different from the DS and yet so unique.

Chevy has my vote, then Subaru, then of course, BMW.

 

I always thought Fisker was European, though.

Well, Henrik Fisker who founded it is Danish, but he founded it in California.  So make of that what you want.

Ahh, thanks for that. Shouldn't Hennessey be on here, though? I mean I know they're a tuning corporation but, they did make the Venom.

 

Also, what about RUF?

Chevy. LSs all the way.

BMW because of their ///M models, 8 series and older 7 series models

Nissan because of their Fairlady Z, Silvia, Cedric/Gloria, President and of course GTR lineups. The R390 is also wicked.

 

Tesla isn't on the list by the way.

Voted Chevy for American because I own 2 of them. It's really a hard choice between Chevy, Ford and Dodge though because I like Chevy for their trucks and Ford and Dodge for their cars(I love my Maverick even though it's still a hunk of sh*t til it gets restored and the 69' Charger R/T is my dream car). Keep in mind that my opinion is based off of 1990 vehicles or older for the most part, I'm not really a fan of most new vehicles from any American manufacturer with the exceptions of the Camaro, Silverado, Mustang, and Challenger as they've brought back/kept the retro styling for the most part.

 

For European I chose Lamborghini solely because of the Countach, Miura and Diablo I'm not much of a Euro or Asian car guy so it's harder to pick a favourite from those categories.

 

As for Asian I voted Toyota because of the Supra, Corolla AE86, older model Hilux(like the Top Gear Indestructible Hilux), and FJ40.

If we are talking about present day cars then definitely ford in the US, but these models are also sold in Europe, as for the European brand then Renault is fantastic, these cars are very sexy, especially an all new Espace. some other brands are overrated, sorry

POLL RESET

Due to the cannibalistic nature of the automotive industry, I have redesigned this poll to be about contemporary auto groups for consumer vehicles. Anyone who voted must vote again (Use the 'Delete my vote' option).

Given doing the poll from a purely business point of view is a very dry, grey area and makes the poll lose much of its meaning, I have used my discretion in some areas. The following points have already been taken into consideration:

- Fiat's stake in Chrysler
- Renault's stake in Nissan
- Daimler AG's stake in Nissan-Renault
- Toyota's stake in Subaru
- Ford owns Mazda, but I have included Mazda separately anyway for the brand's strength
- Similarly Jaguar Land Rover (owned by Tata) included separately
- Motorbikes and/or heavy trucks brands have been ignored (e.g. Hero Honda, Hayabusa, Scania etc)
- More Chinese automakers will only be included on request as they are far too numerous, not very notable and will dilute the poll otherwise

I will happily take any other points I have neglected into consideration if you post them here.

So... I don't see Lotus or BMW up there. Where would they go?

 

Redid my votes. GMC, BMW, Nissan.

- BMW group added

Durr, I was bound to miss one of the obvious ones. Lotus is very small volume so I'll add it if you specifically want to vote for it.

I voted for GMC because it's my 'favourite' but Ford makes better cars and is a much more successful business.

But most scions are simply European Toyotas with a different logo

 

All Scions are rebadged Toyotas.

 

xA = ist

xB = bB

tC = Zelas (not sold in Japan)

xD = ist

iQ =iQ (lol)

FR-S = GT86

I will not be featuring Zastava because Fiat is in the list, only companies with mostly original models being produced today qualify or the list becomes dilute and meaningless like it was last time.

Edit: Wow, I think the polling system is broken:
