What’s in a name? A lot, to be honest. People don’t just want a car that’s priced well, looks good and meets their needs, but they also want one with a bootlid badge that won’t make following traffic laugh openly at their ride.
Which begs the question of how some cars end up with the most perplexingly bizarre names.
Take, for example, the Suzuki S-Presso. Announced this week for the Indian market, it’s a reasonably good-looking compact SUV that has nothing to do with coffee, yet its name makes us feel like you’d need to buy one from a barista, not a car dealer.
Yet the S-Presso is low on the crazy name spectrum. There are far more egregious examples out there though - flick through the captioned gallery above to see ‘em.
