    After I saw this car in the Car Throttle's video, I can't forget the name.

    The Opel Combo.
    Personally, I think it works decent as an van name, although I don't see an combination reference at all.

    Early Combos were all combined/panel vans, hatches with cargo boxes at the rear. :)

    Elan (Lotus): refined, sounds great and fits the car, especially the 1st one.
    Quattroporte (Maserati): simple and elegant, I can smell rich leather and mahogany by just saying this out loud.
    Karif (Maserati): sharp, svelte like a monsoon that storms the surroundings... too bad the car actually sucked balls...
    Aristo (Toyota): shame they didn't keep the name for export...
    Corolla, Corona (Toyota): Toyota, there's only so many synonims for "Crown". These sounded great, but please, shtap.
    Concerto (Honda): the car was kinda bland but the musical reference was sweet.
    Murano (Nissan): from the venetian district of glass artists, the car was less delicate than the glass masterpieces it evoked, but cool name nonetheless.

    Daewoo Racer. This name doesn't fit this car at all.

    YES FINALLY!!!

    On topic:
    I've been working in Automation on a midsize FWD/AWD sedan by Hirochi, kind of a premium car. I'm very proud of the name too. I've called it the Levara, which sounds fitting to a midsize premium, no? I googled it and Levara means (in music) to remove all stops. Even better!

    Not necessarily good news. The US market kinda rejected most non-premium Euro products before. I don't see Citroën/DS going very far in North America...
