If you really stop and think about it, cars have some pretty interesting names. While some are made up, like Integra, others are very much real words. The funny thing is that the nature of the cars doesn't always line up with what the word really means, which makes you wonder what the marketing departments were thinking when they selected the name in the first place.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has had fun with this weirdness, and it works because we all know how ridiculous some car names are. After all, why did Ford name a car the Aspire? What is it aspiring to do? Then there's the Honda Accord, which has nothing to do with groups of people coming together in agreement. But, somehow, these names have worked to one degree or another.
The real question is how well can you identify cars if they're called by the literal definitions of their names? It can be surprisingly difficult because you must think actively about what the car model names really mean. Think you're up to the challenge? Take the quiz right now!
