    So it seems the Emgrand brand will survive, along with Englon, perhaps. But the logo looks like the one we began seeing in 2009…..or is there a subtle change?

    When viewed from the front, some might say shades of Hawtai.

    Why does their logo look like something from a cartoon… It looks like a cheaply made copy, and poorly, of Cadillacs… Which is sad

    You are right, Dragin, it is the old Emgrand logo. The new at the Beijing Show has changed colours: blue.
