Foreign Word: figo

figo (adjective) [fee-go]:

Italian slang for cool.

Ford (the car company) today unveiled a small car for India called the Ford Figo. With this nomenclature, Ford joins car companies who've named their cars after European words. A couple of examples:
  • Fiat: Grande, Linea

  • Maruti Suzuki: Zen Estilo

Can you think of any other such cars?
