Default So, what do we think about the new VW logo?



I get that they're going for the retro vibe, but given that VW's past (and origin) is WW2-era Germany...????

Also, it reminds me of the crudely approximated logo that came on some of the early Chinese knock-off parts, a particular example being the Mk4 "euro" headlight switch.

So they went with a little thinner lines? Is that it?

Meh - who cares. They aren't bringing in diesels anymore, and I was never a fanboy.

ZZZ....zzzzzz......ZZZZ....zzzzz...

Looks nearly identical to the '67 logo. Harking back to the glory days. It's not like they're going to the '37 logo w/ stylized swastika.

Good point - I'd forgotten about the swastika-adjacent "flags" that were on the original.
This Medium post by Sanketa Kapse contains the graphic below, which provides a good history of the evolution of the logo.



And to turbobrick240's point above...how is the "new" logo different from the 1967 iteration?!

Something feels off about the thickness of the lines. Shouldn't the W be flush with the outer circle as well?
