Vauxhall recently announced they will drop the Vectra name in favor of Insignia after the 2003 luxury concept car. Fine. But Insignia sounds utterly unimaginative and to make matters worse, Insignia is a brand of aftershave lotion.
For the poll, let's start with these five names:
Aura: That's the name used by Saturn to denominate the American interpretation of the Vectra.
Calais: Holden use this name to denominate their luxury Commodore. Fine. But they also use Omega to denominate the base Commodore. Omega was the name of the luxury car built by Opel from 1986 to 2003 and Vauxhall from 1994 to 2003. Besides, Calais sounds sophisticated and very European.
Firenza: My personal choice would be to relaunch the Firenza name. The Firenza was the Sport Coupé based on the Viva. Besides, VX most certainly will call the next car with a name that ends in "A"; Firenza sounds better than "Insigniahhhh".
Magnum: Dodge already use this name for the Estate version of the Dodge Charger. It's not a bad name at all. Very manly and butch. Vauxhall also used this name from 1973 to 1978. The Magnum was an HC Viva with larger engines, more luxurious interior, vinyl roof, higher trim level and twin headlights. It shared its suspension and drive train with the Vauxhall Firenza. But I'm not so sure about this one...Magnum is not a name for a "sensible" family car; it's more a name for a sportscar.
Monza: In reference to the GT Coupé built by Opel from 1978 to 1986. GM used the Monza name on the H-Platform Coupé built from 1976 to 1980, then in 1982 to 1996 on the South American Cavalier Mk2, Opel used the name again on the Belmont for the South African market and finally, Chevrolet used the name again on the Saloon version of the Corsa sold in Mexico.
Do you have any others that might be suitable?
As it goes along other suggestions can be added to it.
