(not weird, just special)
At first I thought it was Dino like short for "Dinosaur," but then I realized it was named after Alfredo "Dino" Ferrari, who was Enzo Ferrari's son.
Dodge Challenger: Fight me, bro.
Chevrolet corvette- corvettes are naval warships
Suzuki Baleno : it sounds like "baleineau" which is the young of the whale in French.
This is one of Ferrari's prettiest designs IMO.
I still wonder why Honda decided on the names Civic and Accord though.
Definitely, one of the sexiest cars ever made
Ford Kuga. Kuga means plague in Serbian, Croatian and Slovenian, so you can think what's going on here. Importers could simply ask Ford to badge this car Escape, like the Hyundai did for Portuguese market Kona, badging it as Kauai.
This isn't a rare car in mentioned countries, though.
Civic was likely chosen because it's a city car. The Accord is an interesting one because, going by the most object-relevant definition of Accord, it would be a kinda odd name for a new car (in hindsight), but it kinda holds up if you're thinking about the car's success over the years:
Most relevant definition of Accord: (of a concept or fact) be harmonious or consistent with.
That could be why they names it that but honestly I might be overthinking it.
The Nissan Rogue has always been an interesting and ironic name to me since they're (IMHO) one of the most normal, civilian SUVs on the road. I've been in both generations and there isn't anything really "Rogue" about them. Albeit, it is a pretty cool name.
I have read in the past that it was something to do the Accord being named as such to celebrate unity in Japanese car production, maybe between the management and the shop floor, but I might be wrong.
Huh, if that's true the name's actually kinda heartwarming in that context.
I think there could be some truth to it as Japan had some quite bad indistrial unrest a few years before the accord was released, so it may be related to celebrating the recovery of the industry
At that time Honda used several music related words for their cars (Quintet, Prelude, Concerto, Jazz), and in French the word accord is also used for guitar chord.
I don't know if it is related.
i thought civic was derived from the honda cvcc engine but ok
Civic isn't even a musical word. The word "civic" means something relating to a city.
what about honda city? i bet you can't guess what that's named after.
