Auburn by Kimura. The ultimate definition of a compact car.

At the 2017 International Motor Show Germany, Kimura debuted the 10th generation Kimura Auburn for the 2018 model year. The second Kimura based on the CM-T (Compact Modifiable - Transverse) Global platform (the first being the 7th generation Auriga, debuting earlier in 2017), the Auburn comes with a new level of comfort, sophistication, and poise. This means front strut-type suspension and rear multilink suspension for extra grip at the limit and more supple, more comfortable highway drives. In addition, the new high-strength steel chassis is 25% stiffer than the previous model, creating a more solid driving dynamic. Retuned 4-wheel independent suspension has been further refined to make the Auburn handle with more precision, with a tighter turning circle and lower rotations lock-to-lock on the steering wheel. With the latest in aluminium technology, the Auburn’s panels are crafted completely from aluminum, leading to a lighter, more efficient Auburn. 4 engines are available; a naturally aspirated 1.8 Liter Inline-4, and 2 turbo engines; 1.6 and 1.8 Liter powerplants, ranging from 168 to 182 horsepower, respectively. These 3 engines, produced from previous designs, can be mated to a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic. A 1.0 Liter 3-cylinder turbo petrol, 1.8 Liter turbodiesel, and 2.0 Liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel engines will release later in 2018 for European markets. Taking every lesson learned from 10 generations of experience, the Auburn is the best that it could be.

An extensive redesign was made for the latest Auburn. Now with the same innovative center console found in the Auriga, the Auburn comes with a standard 8.5” touch screen with a 10” unit optional. In addition, another evolution of infotainment comes with the Auburn; ClearSense²™ which again is compatible with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Automatic braking, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, Pedestrian Detection Systems, and KimuraGuard™ are also available. Overall, the design is more upscale than before, with richer materials used along the entire cabin. With an all-new HUD, flowing and luxurious design, and ergonomically designed to fit anyone’s driving needs, the Auburn’s interior gives way to all new Kimura’s of the future. With distinctive, modern styling, the Auburn emits a classy yet groundbreaking design. Revolutionary yet evolutionary, it remains a memorable and familiar design while staying timeless. The newest form of the Prismatic headlights return, with a more contemporary take on a well-known idea. The Auburn again is available in 3 classic body styles; a practical 5-Door hatchback, a stylish 2-door coupe, and a well-rounded 4-door saloon. With every meticulous change made to a proven formula comes out a car which has been tediously crafted to be as perfect as possible.
