Car brands, more often than not, are named in their respective native languages and therefore are some distance from what’s familiar, particularly to those who don’t primarily speak the language in question. The video here gives insight into how they are pronounced by representatives of each automaker featured here.

Perhaps, have a go at pronouncing the following names before checking out the video, and see how close you’ve come. Fret not if some are difficult – it would seem that in some cases, even company representatives need more than one go at it:

Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Bugatti, Citroen, DS, Ferrari, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jeep, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Lexus, Maserati, Mazda, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Morgan, Nissan, Opel, Pagani, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Seat, Skoda, Subaru, Suzuki, Tata, Toyota, Volkswagen, Volvo.
