No one has more fun giving vehicles ridiculous names than Geely, and the Geely King Kong is no different. Even though it's essentially a small four-door hatchback, which is nothing like King Kong, it is named after the jungle beast. Also, King Kong is resilient and this little hatch isn't even close.
