Brilliance CaCa, a Real Chinese Car Name?

Brilliance H120 CaCa 1 photo
There's a joke around the office that the Chinese name their cars from the sound they make when they disintegrate at the first corner. However, we'd have never expected that they would go so far!
We found at least two separate reports that this small five-door that will debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show in late November is called the the "CaCa. Yes, we searched high and low, that's how much we were bewildered by the name.

Apparently, the Chinese like to double up silables on their cars and vehicles like the YueYue, BenBen and QQ are already on sale. But come on, CaCa? Did nobody have an english dictionary at the factory?

To make it worse, the CaCa is built by Brilliance, BMW's joint venture partner in China. It has a codename, H120, and will be offered with a choice of 1-liter or 1.3-liter engines.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
