Did you know that some cars bear different names in other countries as against what we call them in Nigeria?

The major reason is, car manufacturers won’t use a name that would compromise their car sales in any country. For example, Mitsubishi “Pajero” ended up as Mitsubishi “Montero” in some countries because it means “Wanker = To Masturbate” in spanish.

See the cars below…

 





1. Toyota Highlander is Toyota Kluger in Australia and Japan
