Name confusion: Ford’s Kuga, or Mercury’s Cougar

Ford will reveal a crossover vehicle called the Kuga at Frankfurt, and this verifies my opinion that we’re running out of car names. Now, how do I know whether you’ve got a Mercury Cougar, or a Ford Kuga. Unless Ford have additionally devised a pronunciation guide: K’gar, Kahgah. Not that this will matter in NZ because we’ve got virtually no Mercury Cougars.

I’m waiting for other manufacturers to follow suit. Nissan may bring out an even more mother-focussed car than Skoda’s Roomster and call it the Wombster.
