    "Also set for global introduction is the Haval Dagou (or Big Dog) - a retro-styled Subaru Forester type SUV contender based on GWM's new LEMON platform."

    I swear, I wonder if they do this on purpose?

    I can just think what the folk currently driving Hilux bakkies, fitted with BFs, are going to call this bakkie.

    Yep, found that one out a couple of years ago when a large group of Spanish tourists laughed their heads off and insisted on having their picture taken whilst standing next to my rental Pajero's badge. ALL of them - one by flipping one....

    I eventually just buggered off and went and had a beer.

    I checked, apparently it's the name Pajero drivers call others not clever enough to buy one.

    When I read this I was think to myself it would be funny if it means what it means, and then I Googled it. I almost fell off my chair!
