We live in a world of nonsense names for cars like Altima, Camry, Aveo, Achieva, Solara, Sentra etc. How about you coming up with a nonsense name for a new car i.e. Chevy __________ (etc.). What kind of vehicle is it?<p>Hyundai Terrada (SUV)<br>Volkswagen Voltec (hybrid)<p><br>

What ever happened to vehicles named after real life themes. You remember the old days when Maserati's where named after Winds, ferrari's after engine displacement and italian towns; Lancias after famous roads; Lamborghini's after Bullfighting history, etc.<p>Some companies still use these naming tactics (to great marketing success I might add). but most have just jumped head first into nonsensical alpha numeric combinations or meaningless made-up syllables.<p>Car makers, give car buyers the tools to dream with. Pick a theme and stick to it. you can then build a whole marketing campaign and brand mythos around it.

I love the name "Azera" for the A to Z ERA. That's why I proposed the name "Abgo" for a smaller city car Hyundai A to B GO. The dumbest car name is Camry. Toyota could have called the car the Pile and it would have sold because it is a great product, but they could have used "Corona".<p>A name that deserves to be used is "Chronos" which DCX probably owns.
