Why are there so many Fiat logos?

Always wondered...

My car has a blue Fiat badge, and newer ones have a nice red one. Then there's many 90s models with a sort of leaning F I A T badge - also printed like that on the windows of my Fiat! And then the older ones with the //// one.

Is there any real reason as to why they've changed their logo so quickly in recent history?

Have to admit, I'm a big fan of the latest one over any of former logos! Shines well in the sun!

Probably due to company image or marketing changes.

Think this is the full collection to date.

Re: Why are there so many Fiat logos?

The simple answer is down to marketing. A new badge/logo can mean a new era equating to more sales & more profit/money. It really is that simple.

3 in 30 years.. not that much change.. there have been SOME changes behind the scenes ..but nothing drastic..

unlike DATSUN.. "ask your Grandad"

look at the Alfa Romeo badge history for a real Italian perspective..

Re: Why are there so many Fiat logos?

I got into FIAT with the Blue BLOCK lettering of the 1980's..

the RED badge is a real throw-back to the 1930's..
complete with a letter R..

EDIT - got me thinking - what / how was the aviation side of the business badged..??

Trouble is the new red logo is cheaply made and mists up and goes tacky looking. I like your nail Polish option, might try that on the van. . :-)
