Agreed, the Mazda feeling is strong in this one.

Did Maesima Stop making cars??

No. They just have nothing new to show yet. I would prefer to wait patiently until their next model arrives.

The Maesima Celento also known as the NV-982 in some markets is a midsize car which was manufactured by Maesima from 1982 to 1988. The sedan, liftback and wagon models were released in February 1982, they were produced in Anikatia at the main factory facilities in Namju.

It was notable for being the first Maesima vehicle ever officially imported into the US market in 1982. It became the companies first ‘world car’ with ambitions to take on the Western markets. The NV-982 was also the companies first front-wheel-drive vehicle and was introduced above the long-running NV-975. Despite the advanced transverse layout, a simple solid rear suspension system remained.

It was powered by either a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol MC-OB1453 engine with single overhead cams and two valves per cylinder of the MCO series producing 43 kW (58 hp) and 96 Nm (71 ft-lbs). The other engine option was a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol MC-OB1992 engine with single overhead cams and two valves per cylinder of the MCO series producing 56 kW (75 hp) and 133 Nm (98 ft-lbs). The MCO series engine was introduced in 1982 and based on the MCP series OHV Inline six-cylinder petrol engines.

All models were offered with competitive warranties and servicing deals but the Celento initially struggled against the established brands. But for those that wanted a simple, practical, affordable and dependable vehicle the Celento provided.

The Maesima UF10 series I Celento also known as the NV-988 in some markets is a midsize car which was manufactured by Maesima from 1988 to 1993. It was part of Maesima’s expansion in North America and other western markets after the success of the first generation Celento.

It was introduced in 1988. Riding on an all-new UF-platform which featured a new torsion beam rear suspension replacing old solid rear design from the previous generation. This provided marked improvements in ride and handling. The exterior was all-new and followed the trend towards aerodynamic design.

The lineup was simplified with the liftback variants dropped from this generation due to poor sales in the US market. The sedan and wagon models returned and were released in March 1988, they were produced in Anikatia at the main factory facilities in Namju.

It was notable for being the first Maesima vehicle to utilise the new UF-platform which would come to underpin many of the companies new models. Despite the range of new platforms and technologies on this new model, it was powered by a revised by a largely similar engine from the MCO series.

The 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine was dropped from the lineup with the only option a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol MC-OB2000N-CL engine with single overhead cams and two valves per cylinder of the MCO series producing 68 kW (91 hp) and 142 Nm (105 ft-lbs). The MCO series engine was introduced in 1982 and based on the MCP series OHV Inline six-cylinder petrol engines.

A facelift for the UF10 series I in 1991 saw modifications to the front and rear. Improvements to the engine including the addition of electronic fuel injection (EFI) on higher grade engines. Additional refinements to the ride and handling were made in the UF10 series II.

All models were offered with competitive warranties and servicing deals which helped to establish the Maesima brand against its competitors.

The Maesima UF40 series I Celento also known as the NV-993 in some markets is a midsize car which was manufactured by Maesima from 1993 to 1997. This generation continued the success of previous generations further establishing the brands presence in the North American, European and Oceanic regions. In the hopeful spirit that ended the cold war Maesima pushed further with plans for US manufacturing plant in Alabama.

Introduced in 1993, the body was all-new but it was still riding on venerable UF-platform. Suspension was unchanged with a McPherson struts up front and torsion beam rear. Handling was tweaked and improved from the previous model, primarily to better suit the requirements of the North American market. The exterior featured a more aerodynamic body with soften organic styling than its predecessor.

The Xz, Tz models remained the American trim lines while a new high grade STz was introduced. The sedan and wagon models continued, they were still produced in Anikatia at the main factory facilities in Namju. The 5-speed manual transmission remained mostly unchanged, while the 4-speed automatic a electronically controlled unit from 4FG180-DBA from GF Friedrichshafen was further refined with hold function to prevent “gear-hunting” while driving on a sloped incline.

All Celento models received a more ergonomic interior and safety equipment like anti-lock brakes and 4-wheel disc brakes. Exclusive to the STz was the MC-GF2154N-FH version of all-new 2.2-liter 4-cylinder producing 100 kW (134 hp) and 178 Nm (103 ft-lbs), 15-inch alloy wheels, climate control, remote central locking and drivers airbag. Xz and Tz models came equipped similarly to the previous generation and were fitted with a the all-new MCG-engine a 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engine, with single overhead cams and four valves per cylinder of the MCG series.

The Xz models retained a carburettored variant this MC-GF2154N-CL engine was rated at 82 kW (110 hp) and 163 Nm (120 ft-lbs). The Tz model received a fuel injected variant, this MC-GF2154N-FL engine was rated at 91 kW (122 hp) and 174 Nm (128 ft-lbs). The MCG series engine was introduced in 1990 and replaced the long running MCO series of 4-cylinder petrol engines.

The UF40 series I Celento underwent the usual mid-generation facelift for 1995. A slightly modified front and rear fascia with new signal lights and rear taillights gave the Celento a softer look. Improvements to the engine including the addition of electronic fuel injection (EFI) and removal of the carburettored engine option in most markets. Additional refinements to the ride and handling as well as more standard safety equipment such as drivers airbags now standard across the range were made in the UF40 series II.

All models were offered with competitive warranties and servicing deals which helped to establish the Maesima brand against its competitors.
