Name that Eco Car! Quiz: identify these aerodynamic production cars
[SPOILER ALERT: don't read past post #1 in this thread, or you may see people giving away quiz answers below.]

Added: another quiz to EcoModder's...

... series.

Test your car recognition skills & see if you can beat the average score.

Third quiz in the series: identify these (relatively) slippery production cars with drag coefficients of 0.28 or better. A somewhat international selection of vehicles from past and present makes up this quiz.

Start here: Name That Eco Car! Choose a quiz -

(More quizzes coming in the future, like a diesel quiz, hyperefficient concept cars... etc.)

I missed the Camry, the latest Prius, latest Insight and the Lexus. Got all the other lesser known correct, go figure!

EDIT: Sorry, didn't think about it when I reported the bug. In the future feel free to edit my posts!

90% here, I got the Hyundai and the Lexus at the end wrong.

PaleMelanesian 06-25-2009 01:33 PM

19/21 = 90%.

I missed 2 non-US cars.

Thanks for the bug report. Fixed! I was madly fixing bugs as you were all taking it. (Did you see any PHP errors? I think I might have crashed Kitai's browser at one point :P)

I got 100%! But I can't tell the Hyundai from a Lexus. I didn't even know about that Hyundai until I started researching. I'm sure I would have gotten those wrong if I hadn't compiled the freaking thing.

Any glaring omissions? Mostly I was working from the Wikipedia list, but also double-checking numbers because it's incomplete, and some are wrong (or debatable).

The Insight2 and Prius3 images were a little harder than usual.

The Insight because it was a slightly weird angle.

I purposely cropped the Prius3 to make it a little bit more of a challenge - less detail.

I got 100% on the hybrid cars and 84% on the electric -- and I missed the @!#%#@$ Tesla! How did I do that?

On this aero cars quiz, I got 76% - slightly better than average. I missed the last Lexus -- which naturally was my *other* choice...

The prius 3 is easy to identify because of its funky front quarter panels that have a spike in the headlight.

Got 90% 19/21

I saw a Mazda logo. Y'all got some more photoshoppin' to do!

I thought the genesis was a bmw and the Mercedes was a genesis. Go figure, the cheap car looked expensive and the expensive car looked cheap to me.

MetroMPG 06-25-2009 10:55 PM

Good eye, robbiewt. Fixed that one.

Hugh Jim Bissel 06-28-2009 02:49 PM

17/21 = 81%

Missed the 1st gen Insight, Mazda 6, Nissan GT-R, And called the Hyundai a BMW as well.

Probably the only reason I got the Civic Hybrid was cause I remember that I missed it on the hybrid quiz!

MetroMPG -

I got 90%, I missed the Hyundai Genesis (question #8, thought it was a Benz) and the Opel Insignia (question #19, thought it was a Hyundai). Maybe 1/2 my recognition is the "design language" of the manufacturer, not the car itself.

I'm happy I got the Opel Calibra. I was looking for that one.

I know this might give away my age, but all I could think of when I was taking this quiz was "Who's that Pokemon??"

[edited] Ahaha...and I just noticed the poster above me.

Crono -

(I think this one has fleas)
