Talking The 'Car Antakshri' thread

This may sound stupid to some, but thought would be great fun! Just like you have 'Antakshri' for hindi songs, why not for car brands?? Lets see how long the chain goes & how many automobile names can we recall. IMHO, laying down certain rules would be customary, if not mandatory..
  1. No names can be repeated. Pl. see existing entries before posting new names.
  2. A brand name can be repeated as long as the model keeps changing.
  3. Brand names and model names, both qualify. E.g: you can quote Skoda and Fabia as seperate entries.
  4. You can use combination of both also. E.g: Maruti Esteem and Versa, both qualify individualy.
  5. Dont use names ending in numerics. E.g: Mercedes C200 or Maruti SX4 !!
  6. No BHPian can reply to this message 2 consicutive times.
  7. Kindly put your respective car names in 'BOLD'
  8. Last alphabet of one car brand/model should be the first alphabet of the other model!
To start with, My word is "Maruti Swift"

Can I have a name starting with 'T' ....?
(Seems easy now, but will be difficult once we are out of names)

It will be like the song antakshri ... initially it will be really easy.... but what if we are stuck with a alphabet for which the names of cars have exhausted. Does anyone has the authority to suggest a new alphabet or will it end there ??

anyways for a for Aveo ... next alphabet is O
