About This Quiz

Don't you just love these battle of the brands quizzes? Well, we do, so we're going to keep making them. And you're going to keep taking them. Why? Because they keep you on your toes when it comes to the automotive industry. 

Today, this fight is betweem the American Chevrolet and the German brand BMW. One has a classic, old faithful look while the other is known for luxury. Can you tell the difference between the two? 

Chevy was created just over a century ago by Louis Chevrolet. It's now a division of General Motors, a company that produces vehicles in over 35 countries.  They sell a vast range of cars, trucks and Jeeps and even some commercial vehicles. 

BMW, on the other hand, is German and has sold everything from automobiles, to motorcycles and aircraft engines. This company, which is similar in age with Chevy, was founded by Karl Rapp and is now the 12th largest vehicle producer in the world. They're known for their participation in motorsports. 

So now that you know a bit more about the brands, are you more excited to prove that you know the difference between the two? If so, let's get started in this quiz!
