In Holland we had the Daffodil, which I always thought that was kind of sweet.

Mitsubishi Legnum?

What does that mean?

Rock hard seats that will cripple you ?

Mitsubishi have a record of misspelling.

Allegedly, the Mitsubishi Starrion was really supposed to be the Mitsubishi Stallion.

Perhaps the Legnum was supposed to be the Lignum.

One that sounds as stupid as the TV ad:

SsangYong Tivoli.

edit:

Put Nissan Qashqai on there too.

Names they hope will become trendy that really sound like desperation to me.

I wonder what a kiwi car would be called. I think Mazda are very New Zealand oriented like the naming of our creeks:

Mazda 2
Mazda 3
Mazda 6

What about some of the slogans on the spare wheel covers on the Jap SUVs.  Some of them are just completely inane.

Then there's the Honda CRV - Comfortable Recreational Vehicle or the Toyota RAV - Recreational Active Vehicle

I thought RAV was Really Average Vehicle or Really Awful Vehicle?

One of my brothers has one and he is Mr Beige, so I stay well away from them.
