Feel and Flair!!! who makes up these names?
In the current times of political correctness saying "I think I will have a feel" could get you in a whole lot of trouble.

This is foreign makes using English words though. It often come out a bit wrong. Sometimes so wrong it can’t be used because it looks daft, ie Cit Jumpy became Relay for UK & I recall the original Cit turbo diesels had to be badged DTR for UK not TRD as for rest of Europe. Plenty of Japanese cars had rather odd English names as well.

I know someone who showed their Toyota MR2 to a french person who laughed at it.  If you pronounce MR2 in French it's ehmm aihr deux, which sounds almost the same as "merde", which means "crap".

Skoda's just launched a Karoq, which to me sounds just like "crock", which used to mean an old person in British English but these days it's usually used in the American sense as meaning complete rubbish, short for crock of sh*t.

This appeals to my sad sense of humour, sitting in traffic I often look to see how car names could be mis-spelt/mis-read: Volkswagen Toerag and Volkswagen Fux, Nissan N-Trail, anybody got others?

There's a reason the Honda Fita is known as Honda Jaz in Scandinavia...
(In the Scandinavian languages it's way too close to a rather 'direct' name for a woman's genitalia )
