How do you pronounce Dacia?................ Europe & Top Gear pronounce it "Daysee-a" but for whatever reason the UK has renamed it "Datcher".............just curious.

It's been discused before here: http://www.daciaforum.co.uk/topic/276-dacia-pronunciation/

This was my answer:

They use the Romanian pronunciation. The name comes from the ancient kingdom of Dacia (now Romania)(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dacia).
Romanian is a Latin language so the letter group "ci" is pronounced like "chee" in English.
Written in English, to sound like the Romanian pronunciation, it will be: dha-chee-ah.

Belive me, I am Romanian. But you can read it the way you want, you are not Romanian. Even the french are pronouncing it in they're own way: dha-see-ah. So say it the way you want it. Day-cia sounds easier, and I think the majority will read it like this. It's a logical choice to read it with your own language pronunciation rules.

I pronounce it the same way the TG crew do. I think they know more about cars than a dealers that doesn't even know when mines coming.
