Auxuras ETL (FACELIFT)


The Auxuras ETL is manufacturer by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , the new 2012 facelift now comes with a new grill , new headlight , DRL and new rear bumper design and also now available in FWD , the Auxuras ETL provides a good balance of luxurious comfort and sporty performance. The ride quality is smooth on a variety of road surfaces and the cabin remains blissfully quiet, with barely a hint of wind or road noise. The engine is also well silenced for the majority of the time. Competitors have opted to turbocharge their engines, but since the ETL uses one of the few naturally aspirated V6s in the segment and is one of the best in the market right now, drivers will need to get the revs up fairly high to tap its power potential. the ETL is well planted to the road and provides a fair amount of handling performance.

**Auxuras STL **


**The Auxuras STL is manufacturer by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , If you need proof that the Japanese can build a competitive, full-size luxury sedan, look no farther than Auxuras flagship , the STL , From its leather steering wheel to the closure of the cup holder’s cover, everything within the Auxuras STL is intended to provide comfortable and composed transport of four or five adults. Of course, you can throw as much leather, wood and technology at an interior as you’d care to, but without the right platform, and full-time commitment, the recipe will fall flat on its face. With Auxuras, the comfort begins at the contact patch of the tires and works up from there. The cabin is sumptuous, and controls and gauges are uncomplicated and easy to use. Seating is very roomy for front passengers and the driver, and visibility and sightlines are good in all directions. The rear seats are spacious, and all but the middle seat which is over the drivetrain hump , are very comfortable. The trunk is a little awkward and surprisingly small, but interior storage is good in the form of door pockets, front and rear cupholders, a roomy center console and a large glovebox.

After few decades , Saminda seems like they doesn’t want to build any V8 passenger car, so Its still uses the same old 3.7-liter V6 and is still good for 315 horsepower , the smoothness of this engine and transmission really makes this car outstanding.**

**Auxuras ELX **


**The Auxuras ELX is manufacturer by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , If you had asked us back in 2011 if the Auxuras ELX would be a success, our answer would have been yes. And why not? The Auxuras brand was still in demand, buyers were increasingly clamoring for luxury crossovers and the economy appeared to be in solid shape. The 2012 Auxuras ELX is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine that you can find it in some Saminda’s and reviewers said has plenty of power for highway passing and merging and generally is responsive and quiet. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, which is a very smooth tranmission. The 2012 ELX gets up to an EPA-estimated 20/27 mpg city/highway, which is fairly good for the class. The ELX strikes a good balance of composed handling and ride comfort, and the ELX has strong brakes.

The exterior has been redesigned all over , however, the dashboard looks largely unchanged. In historic Auxuras fashion, buttons litter the center stack and steering wheel which look pretty decent and easy to use. The ELX is the best selling lineup in Auxuras with more then 50 thousand unit sold. **

Auxuras SLX


**The Auxuras SLX is a full-size luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV) sold by Saminda, The 2012 SLX had a V6 engine powertrain, a welded steel unibody shell combined with full-size steel ladder frame (body-on-frame construction). The SLX is Auxuras largest and most expensive luxury SUV. The 8-passenger SLX is built to be as rugged as it is refined, with a sophisticated terrain-response system allowing it to traverse almost any obstacle. Befitting its status, the SLX luxury SUV isn’t cheap to purchase or to operate, with fuel-economy ratings that barely break double-digits. The SLX comes loaded with comfort, convenience, and entertainment features. Bluetooth and a nav system are included, and from features like a 180-degree camera that can see each way at a blind intersection to power-assist middle-row seats, there’s a lot to love in the everyday-useful feature department. And if that’s not enough, optional extras include a rear-seat entertainment system, radar-adaptive cruise control, and a 19-speaker Mark Levinson audio system. African Bubinga wood trim, heated and ventilated seats, and custom wheels are also available

Main complains about this ‘‘Luxury SUV’’ that Auxuras so called , which lack of V8 option , reviewers said that a true Luxury SUV should have at least a V8 engine option but Auxuras didn’t get it right , and the it is very pricey for a car without a V8 powertrain although the V6 does the job well enough but not great.**

Saminda boss , Shibuya Kuge want to splits Auxuras into its own division to revitalize brand

Working to shore up its upscale Auxuras brand, Saminda Motor Co. plans to split its sales and marketing efforts into separate divisions in the U.S.

Saminda is looking to punch some energy into Auxuras, which has lagged its bigger Saminda sibling in sales growth and has struggled to carve out a strong image. Auxuras sold less then 100,000 vehicles in North America , and less then 30,000 combined with China and Russia.

Auxuras is suffering through its second straight year of declining sales. A brand that once sold more than 200,000 units annually will be lucky to sell half that number this year.

The new plans demonstrates that Saminda is prepared to devote the resources necessary to “revitalize” Auxuras, said Eric Ballman, senior vice president of U.S Auxuras Motor Co., who will oversee both brands , he also added that he hopes Auxuras will be a worldwide brand and have plans to export its car to more countries as it brand is only available in North America , Hong Kong , China , United Kingdom and Russia, but not untill the brand have been “fixed”

Saminda said it would discontinue the rebadged C3 , the ATL, which only available in United Kingdom and only manage to sell off less then 2,000 units , it will be replaced by the all new ITL and hope to boost its overall sales by 20 percent.

The base model will use a direct-injected, 2.4-liter i-VIC , same engine which can be found on a C3 Spec-V with around 210 horsepower

The higher trim “VR” would use the new direct-injected turbocharged(i-VIC ProAIR) 2.0-liter four cylinder with more then 230hp.

The highest trim “VR-X” engine would also be new for Auxuras, a 3.5-liter V6 direct injected SOHC producing more then 280hp.

All of the engine will be mated with an all new seven speed dual clutch tranmission.

Pricing hasn’t been announced, but is expected to be close to $35,500 starting price.

**Auxuras QTL **

**Auxuras QTL ‘‘Spectal’’ **


**The Auxuras QTL is manufacturer by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , The QTL was designed by Richard Jones who labeled it a “4-door luxury sports wagon” and which Auxuras says "blurs the distinction between sedan and sport utility vehicle’’. The car has been said to be a “new level of prestige for Auxuras”. The production version includes the 3.7-liter DOHC i-VIC V6 all-aluminum engine rated 315 bhp at 7400 rpm and 365 N·m at 4700 rpm, 6-speed automatic transmission, Super Control All-Wheel Drive (SC-AWD), 19-inch alloy wheels, panoramic glass roof with movable sunshades, hand-stitched leather interior, Bluetooth connectivity, power tailgate, and a high-powered audio system with CD player, AM/FM/XM Satellite Radio and USB audio interface with iPod integration. ‘‘Spectal’’ Edition adds the Navigation System with voice recognition, an Auxuras Surround premium audio system , new multi-view rear camera , blind spot monitoring system, Collision Braking System , Adaptive Cruise Control and Auxuras Movement System (AMS), which brought multiple modes of suspension firmness and response using electronically-controlled shock absorbers.

While the QTL isn’t horribly bad in any one category, Auxuras only sold 964 of them in the U.S. on 2012 making it one of the worst selling vehicle in U.S. **

Auxuras ITL Base 2.4

Auxuras ITL VR 2.0T

Auxuras ITL VR-X 3.5 V6


**The ITL is manufactured by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , Within the growing class of compact entry-level luxury sedans, Saminda replaced the ATL (Which only sold in UK) with the ITL , Although the ITL is small and light like a C3, its sophisticated interior layout and quieter cabin make for an overall more pleasant driving experience. The light steering effort and comfortably firm ride are also at odds with its Saminda cousin, there are three models to choose from. The first has a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder connected to a 7-speed dual clutch tranmission (Standard on all trim) This version is fine around town, but don’t expect to break speed records. The second ITL packs a more powerful newly developed 2.0-liter ProAIR Turbocharged engine , if that is still not enough for you , there is a also an all new 3.5-liter V6 engine with more then 280bhp.

Saminda onces said they hope the ITL can boost the overall sales by 20% , however although the ITL become number 2 best selling in their lineup , the target is still quite diffcult to achieve.**

[size=150]Back to year 2010 , when Saminda showcased the Production version of CZ6 that will be on sales on 2013[/size]

**After nearly 30 years , Saminda finally and officially released the second-generation of its CZ6 supercar. And finally we are now left with, in production form is a mid-mounted, 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 bolted to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission with its Super Control All-Wheel Drive badge.

Sadly, Auxuras won’t yet exactly say about the powertrain , telling us it will have around more then ‘‘500 horsepower’’

Not surprisingly, Auxuras also will not give exact pricing figures, saying the CZ6 will start around the mid $120,000 mark. Buyers ready to put their money down before knowing things like exact power output, engine displacement, or 0-to-60 figures, Auxuras will start taking custom orders starting this summer with deliveries beginning later in 2013.**

Auxuras CTL


**The CTL is manufactured by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , This sedan is what Auxuras called their ‘‘Fastest Sedan Ever’’ with only 1 trim and fitted with a powerful 3.7-liter i-VIC engine making 330bhp , up from 15hp from last year , thanks to their Super Control All-Wheel Drive (SC-AWD) and fast shifting DCT , this car just need 4.7s from naught to 62mph (100km/h) , however , there are still no V8 option yet despite Auxuras claiming that this car just need to be a V6 to be as powerful as a V8.

The car gets an electronic diff lock for better traction and a sports suspension set-up. Needless to say it was a sharp piece of kit. Befitting its luxury sedan status, the 2013 Auxuras CTL has an excellent ride quality. Bumps, potholes and expansion joints are dismissed with reassuring, almost Germanic competence. The sedan is also appreciably quiet on the freeway. Few luxury sedans have truly communicative steering anymore, and the CTL holds to that standard. **

Well, CTL looks pretty nice, and it’s pretty quick too. What about 250 km/h speed cap, is it installed or not?


#36

Yes of course :smiley: , although the car can go to 280km/h , but we need to limit it to 250km/h due to government restrictions.

Auxuras ETL VR-X 3.5 V6

Auxuras ETL Sport 3.7 V6


**The ETL is manufactured by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , the best C5 you can buy right now is called an Auxuras ETL , The base ETL comes with a 211 hp, 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine, mated with a new seven-speed dual clutch transmission. For more power, buyers can opt for the 285 hp, 3.5-liter V6 or a 330 hp , 3.7-liter V6 engine all mated with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, The cabin of the ETL is driver-focused. Everything is nicely finished with soft touch materials, it is comfortable, extremely quiet and can be loaded with all the latest technology available in the Auxuras automotive world. There is seating for five adults and a cargo capacity of 401 litres in the trunk. The 60/40 split rear seats fold for added cargo room when needed. All in all, the ETL is a good effort from Auxuras. Will it be enough to grow sales? Only time will tell. However, traditional fans of the brand should be pleased and techies will love all the exciting features that are too numerous to mention here.

**Auxuras STL 3.7 **

**Auxuras STL LUX SC-AWD , 3.7 and 4.2 **


**The STL is manufactured by Saminda and sold under their Luxury division , Auxuras , The 2013 STL is a good car. But that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Despite the fact that Auxuras is subject to a lot of criticism for things like its odd positioning in the automotive landscape, and the fact that, more or less, its products feel like lux’d-up Saminda rather than something truly unique, the cars have always been inherently good – decent to drive, nice to sit in and reliable to own. That’s what happens when you ride that sort of “affordable luxury” line.

Many people claimed that the 2013 STL is the best car Auxuras produced. And they may be right. But is it truly good enough to be a more renowned player in this higher-end segment than the QTL was? (That shouldn’t be too hard, given the fact that the QTL was the worst-selling car of 2012.)

All STL models come standard with the ‘‘Auxuras Crystal Headlamps’’ you see here , the standard STL is powered by Saminda’s 3.7-liter i-VIC V6, with 320 horsepower. Power runs to the ground via a seven-speed dual clutch tranmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters , also Saminda introduced a new powertrain that is a 4.2-liter i-VIC V6 making 350bhp. The STL is the first lineup to receive this new powertrain. **

Saminda boss to cancel V8 plans and is a no to Rear Wheel Drive

Most traditional luxury automakers offer at least one model with V8 power and rear-wheel drive, but Saminda chief says the Auxuras luxury brand will focus on fuel-efficient drivetrains rather than trying to emulate some of the more well established premium marques. Saminda president Shibuya Kuge says Auxuras has no plans to go V8 or rear-wheel any time soon, but will continue to work on fuel efficient offerings - including hybrids. “I don’t think we need a classic front-engine, rear-drive car,” Kuge said on a press during Los Angeles Motor Show.“We are considering incorporating new engines, motors, transmissions and chassis into mid- to large-sized hybrid vehicles, and I think this is a good opportunity for change.” Kuge noted that buyer’s new found preference for fuel efficient vehicles falls right into lines with Saminda business plans. Saminda canceled its V8 production plans in the last few months and introduced a new 4.2-liter engine which is also a V6. It remains to be seen if Auxuras can climb to the ranks of a top-tier luxury brand without a rear-wheel drive, V8 offering.
