Some people, far from the world of cars, find it difficult to navigate a huge number of brands and models of cars. And often they are limited to the epithets "so small," red or "jeep, although all brands of cars have their own identifying emblems and unique design and body elements. But you can learn to understand this sea of cars and become, if not an expert, then at least an amateur.
The greatest difficulty in determining the brand is caused by rare and exotic cars. True, in Russia you rarely meet them on the road. More questions about identification are caused by cars of American and Italian manufacturers, the models of which are not supplied to our market. Among the famous American brands in Russia there is Dodge, whose emblem is the head of an argali. Many people confuse this emblem with the bull, which is depicted on the nameplate of the Lambordgini sports car. And although the latter is much less common on the roads, remember - Italians do not make SUVs and pickups, unlike the American concern. In general, the theme of animals can often be found in the emblems of a particular car. Peugeot considers a lion a symbol of its cars, Skoda a green bird.
If the emblem is a kind of intricate monogram or abstraction, be sure: this is a masterpiece of the Chinese car industry. And if there is also a number of numbers next to it instead of the model name, you are definitely not mistaken. An exception is the complete antipode to Chinese cars - Maybach. His emblem is a rounded triangle with two Ms in the center. The Chinese have long been using a similar nameplate on one of their brands. Of course, look at the car itself: the Maybach is a luxury car whose design immediately attracts attention.
If there is no emblem on the car, try to determine the brand by the features of the car body structure. Most car manufacturers adhere to a certain design in their lines. The same American cars have a rather aggressive body design, with a powerful bumper, arches and a wide platform. Japanese cars have more rounded shapes, large headlights, original radiator grilles. French cars, for example, Renault, are distinguished by a certain pretentiousness of forms - a discrepancy between the size of the trunk with the hood, swollen sides.
