I know, some people just like to drive whatever and not give a hoot, but hey, some people do have a favorite brand.

 

PS: No bashing.

 

Also, Only the brands I recognize in the list. If there are more popular brands I did not know about, just tell me

Holden aren't European. 

Mini aren't a manufacturer but a sub-brand of BMW.

Vauxhall are a sub-brand of Opel.

USA: Dodge, but only to mid '70s. After that US car market started to crumble by using rebranded japanese or even german cars made in Korea (Pontiac LeMans). Nothing can beat the old mopars like Challenger, Charger, Dart or Coronet, though. Classic lines and powerful engines. What's not to like?

 

Europe: Citroen as I love this wild mixes or art deco design and modern technology. One of the manufacturers being ahead of its times.

 

Japan: Toyota, which is still known for their reliability. 

 

Australia (though it's not mentioned here): Ford. Great cars, so different than European or US fords.

You're right, besides the fact Chevy was axed in western Europe to save Vauxhall, but in this case they are in category for what country they originated in

I have something for the now defunct Oldsmobile. Cutlass <3

If I had to choose a modern brand, I'd go with the 'new' Cadillac, as they are doing some pretty awesome designs lately.

About the European brand, I like some Audis but in my opinion their current styling is getting a bit repetitive. I'd go with Volvo.

Last, I find Asian cars in general ugly and boring. Maybe I would take Honda or some of the latest Hyundai models.

I probably would have added Suzuki to the Asian poll. I wouldn't have gone with it as #1, but it's certainly more deserving than most of the others.

 

P.S. Does Ymaha make cars, or are we incluuding motorcycles in this? Because if it's the later, there are a few other oversights I would have mentioned.

I drive a Suzuki, so I'm going to disagree with you there.

Never a whole car, but they have done car engines before. The first 2 Tauruses SVO had engines made by them.

They build engines for car makers, but not cars themselves.

Ferrari for european cars... well, Ferrari is what keeps my life together!

Can we narrow down the American side to Ford, GM, and Chrysler?

I mean my dream garage would have a Ram 2500, Viper, Wrangler Unlimited, and an SRT Grand Cherokee.

A problem with this poll is that some companies are split into their constituent brands and some are not.

 

e.g.

 

Cadillac, Pontiac, GMC, Chevrolet, Saturn, Hummer, Oldsmobile are listed separately.

 

Toyota, Lexus, Scion, WiLL are combined into "Toyota"

 

I don't think we have enough voters to properly divide the brands, but at the same time voting for your favourite in each continent's "big three" doesn't develop into anything meaningful.

 

Also, Volkswagen (and Skoda) are missing despite Audi, Porsche, Seat being present.

Lexus and Scion are arguably Japanese because they Toyota's children.

 

However Lexus and Scion could be interpreted as American because they are marketed very squarely at the US, and Americans are heavily involved in their design.

 

I don't think Scions are sold anywhere in Europe.
