honda have used the names of accord and Civic for some years now and for good reason. The names sell ! it is as simply as that.. A manufacturer only changes a name if either the car was not a good one and the name stinks of reliability issues or the name is a swear word in another language. The name Granada caused a serious problem for fords! Ford use the names Fiesta and focus . In particular the fiesta name has been around for many years. Ford are a manufacturer that liked to keepnames for many years cortina to 5th Generation Escort also VW golf and polo. where a manufacturer has made a codswallop of a car they simply never continue the name. VW fox .. Honda have great names such as goldwing motorcycle (i have had 4) that name started in 1974 ! and still continues to this day..
