See your favorite dictionary. Or:
Quote:
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:

pedestrian
adj 1: lacking wit or imagination; "a pedestrian movie plot"
[syn: {pedestrian}, {prosaic}, {prosy}, {earthbound}]
I left off the "noun" definition, as "pedestrian" in "pedestrian car" is clearly an adjective.

So, a "pedestrian car" is a basic, boring, run-of-the-mill car. A Camry or similar. It's not exactly a stretch to use the word in that way.
