Thought Saab was owned by Stryker Cars.

As for Hyundai owning Kia, that surprised me - even though they share design, chassis and many other components.

Don't forget the 2 English brands Aston Martin and Morgan who are not owned by other lafge auto companies although Aston is going into a partnership with Mercedes for the development of new engines so Mercedes will no doubt take a stake in Aston.

Ford sold Aston Martin to Dave Richards at Prodrive.

Tata are massive, they've been pretty good for jag landrover, they have let the designers and engineers over here get on with it and they're producing good cars that are in demand.

Renault have a big stake in Nissan. PSA owns Peugeot and Citroen. VAG now own Ducatti. BMW holds the rights to Rover related brands ie Austin, Leyland, gained them when it bought Rover and held onto the naming rights.

No one owns Honda and Honda don't own any other manufacturers.
Acura is the luxury division of Honda, these are sold mainly in the United States and Canada but not the UK.

The CRV, Civic & Jazz are made at Swindon in the UK

They are the worlds biggest manufacturer of internal combustion engines.
(cars, planes, motorbikes, generators, lawnmowers & marine) more than 14 million a year !Edited by: Derkie54

The same as Nissan/Infiniti and Toyota/Lexus/Scion. The same company, just different 'brands' for different market sectors.
