Chery (manufacturer) Not my cherry.
Neon - Chrylser
Doblo - Fiat Doblo, foblo, fabian, lesbian....etc.
Uno - Fiat Uno het ek *** gekoop.
Ka - Ford vodKA
Geely (manufacturer) Really? I mean...!
GoNow (manufacturer) No Go!
Hover - GWM Hoover vacuum.
Bolero - Mahindra A curry bolognaise.
Juke - Nissan I am your father Juke.
Murano - Nissan
Partner - Peugeot Manly partner...eew!
Telcoline - Tata Hello, how may we direct your call? Tata, thanks for calling.

Hyundai - Pony

Mitsubishi - Starrion (supposedly a translation error by our friends in the Far East)

It wasn't intentional that the first two I thought of were equine related! Strange...

Hmmm what else?

Nissan - Fairlady (300zx/ 350Z -manly cars, gay name)

Range Rover - Evoque (just makes me think '****' every time)

The most inapropriate name has got to be the mitsubishi charisma as its one of the most uncharasmatic cars on the road.
What were they thinking.

Oh, and Renault - Twingo
