Datsun was an automobile marque. The name was created in 1931 by the DAT Motorcar Co. for a new car model, spelling it as "Datson" to indicate its smaller size when compared to the existing, larger DAT car. Later, in 1933 after Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. took control of DAT Motorcar Co., the last syllable of Datson was changed to "sun", because "son" also means "loss" in Japanese, and also to honour the sun depicted in the national flag, hence the name "Datsun".

Color can play tricks on color. Just as warm colors can make a room appear smaller and cozier, cool colors have the effect of making a space seem larger, more airy.
