You won't believe what these car names ACTUALLY mean!

On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
It’s fair to say that naming a car is a lot harder than you may think! Think of all the things you’ll need to get right, from picking something that sounds cool, through to making sure it works in multiple different languages.
As a result, it means that sometimes, you’ll end up with car names that have rather unusual meanings. Further to that, there’s definitely been a few occasions where manufacturers clearly haven’t done enough research on the names they’ve chosen!
Wondering which are the worst offenders? You’ll need to sit back and join Mat for our latest video to find out!

  • Porsche just did a Google search for cool names that sound like Cayenne & Carrera and found "Cajun" (which they eventually cancelled) and "Macan", not realizing that the correct pronunciation in Indonesian is "Mah-Chan" and not "May-Can". How hard was it to call up the Indonesian Embassy in Germany to ask the correct pronunciation of "Macan"? On second thought, Porsche probably would've cancelled it if they'd known that the "C" sound in "Macan" sounds very different from the "C" sound in "Cayenne" & "Carrera" & "Taycan".
