Off the Grid

Test your knowledge of automotive model nomenclature here:

Here’s a little teaser to give those brain cells a workout. The grid above contains the model names of 100 passenger vehicles of all descriptions, including sports cars, SUVs and crossovers etc. Some of the names are words, some are initials, but there are no numerals in the grid. The letters shared by two different model names are shown. The names all read either horizontally from left to right or vertically from top to bottom. No model name is used more than once.

Your task is to complete the grid to reveal all the model names. Please note that there may be more than a single unique answer that fits for each model name.

If anyone would like a Word version of the grid, either to work on electronically or even print off and attack with a pencil, please just let me know in the comments below. There’s no need to reveal your e-mail address publicly as I can pick that up from your comment.

Good luck!

  1. Good morning, Daniel. A word version would be much appreciated. I’m going to exercise and get ready for work, but I’ll give it a go in my free time.

  2. I guess there are more possible solutions to this intriguing crossword. Perhaps not entirely unexpected. Montego/Montero is one such possible ambiguity.

    Thanks Daniel!

  3. Too wet to do any outside work today and too cold in the workshop – a Word version would be just the thing to go with feet up in front of the fire this afternoon! Many thanks in anticipation…..

  4. I enjoy these quizzes and challenges.
    Would there be a way to put them in a category in the archive, so that past ones are easier to find?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Bill. If you type ‘puzzles and quizzes’ into the search window above right on any DTW page, you should get all our previously published holiday teasers, including the answers that have already been published. 🙂

  5. Seasons greetings to one and all. Thank you for all the articles and comments this year.
    Could I have a word version also please sir?

  6. And to think I was only just saying to my wife that there’s never a cross word on Driven to Write.

    May I too have the Word version, please.

    1. daleward: You should be present for the editorial meetings. Pure carnage…

  7. I’ve no idea why a Word file should be necessary. screenshot -> “paint” program -> text tool.

    1. Thanks, gooddog, you’ve just revealed my tragic limitations regarding this sort of thing…😨
