[quote]The Saminda Antana is a subcompact car manufactured by Neo Motors (a subsidiary of Saminda Motor Co.) while Antana sold in China will be manufactured in Wuhan-China, originally called the Neomo Antana but since the closure of Neomo , it will be rebranded to Saminda.

The Saminda Antana first made its debut in 2013. Specially developed for South-east Asia and China, it’s consider as a budget entry-level subcompact car positioned below the Tano and C3 family saloon. Since then, this assembled-in-Thailand car has already gone through two generations.

Providing the vroom-vroom for the new Antana is the familiar 1.5-liter RE15B3 four-cylinder engine. Like before, it develops 102bhp at 6,800rpm and 135Nm of torque at 3,500rpm. The five-speed automatic transmission is also carried over from the outgoing Antana. It may take a leisurely 12 seconds to get from rest to 100km/h but its fuel consumption is worth taking note of – 6.3 litres for every 100km (which works out to 16km per litre)

Starting from $14,850, the new Antana presents itself to bean enticing proposition, particularly for first-time car buyers and young families.

Saminda Tonaro 2.2D (Diesel)

Engine : LVD Series (Common Rail) , LVD220A

[quote]The Saminda Tonaro is a light commercial vehicle produced and marketed by the Japanese manufacturer Saminda.

Generally created pickup, the 2015 Saminda Tonaro provides something a prospective purchaser desires from a contemporary truck , elegant and fantastic outside additionally to interior style , trustworthy and potent engine, ease and luxury along with safety among the course of driving. Nicely, this truck would possibly unquestionably fulfill of these standards.

There are only two different engines to choose from. Both are four-cylinder but with either diesel or petrol , the 2.7-liter petrol engine producing 153bhp and 218nm of torque , the second a smaller but more powerful 2.2-liter common rail turbocharged diesel engine kicking out 159bhp and 300nm of torque.

Four airbags and a five-star safety rating , thanks to the addition of a seatbelt warning light , extra padding near the driver’s knee and Saminda Ultec Safe Unit (USU Bodystructure).

And you can rest easy knowing that if anything goes wrong , which is highly unlikely, considering the indestructible nature of Saminda vehicles. And owners clearly agree, as they voted Saminda a very impressive 3rd for reliability in survey’s despite their recent recalls.

#Saminda and their Chinese partner Wuhan Saminda Automobile announced an entirely new brand for the Chinese market.

The Huali marque will launch in 2016 but Saminda say that it will debut the brand’s first concept car at the 2015 Beijing Auto China.

Huali roughly translates to English as ‘beauty’ and is based on Wuhan Saminda’s desire to create a new brand by Chinese and for China. Huali hopes to pursue lofty ideals with a challenging spirit, or an affordable car with dynamics and stylishness.

The Huali Concept will be designed entirely by Wuhan Saminda Automobile Research & Development, and even though Saminda HQ in Japan is supporting the effort, Wuhan Saminda will take all initiatives and eventually sell the new brand through their existing dealer network.

As a final note, Huali is the pronunciation of the Chinese brand name, therefore, it will be purely for the Chinese market.


Can’t wait for first recall!


It won’t happen if Saminda-Auxuras (which itself has suffered plenty of recalls over the years) has told Huali to prioritize quality control first and foremost, though.

Edit: Thanks @Starfish94 for explicitly stating that the higher-ups at Saminda-Auxuras have admitted their guilt and consequently resigned.


In Saminda , quality is an importance to us , as you may not know that we have changed all 4 chiefs according to it countries , news can be seen here

as they have admit the negligence over quality issue , and had resign on their own benefit of doubt

Saminda pledge that things like this will not be repeated.


You don’t get the joke eh…
At least HQ of Saminda apologized, and I’ve seen it, but you know, you can’t change brand’s image in year or two - in Poland Alfa Romeos got known as unreliable cars expensive to maintain, and even today the stick is on despite changing quality of cars


#Huali Concept 8 introduced in 2015 Beijing Auto Show.

Wuhan Saminda Automobile announced the launch of a new brand and concept car for the Chinese market - the Saminda Huali. The Saminda Huali concept indicates the direction of the new brand that will begin selling cars in 2016. The Huali brand will develop products that are more specific for the Chinese consumers.

The styling and the engineering design of the Saminda Huali concept were developed by Wuhan Saminda Automobile R&D which was established in 2009.





The nose also reminds me of a Nissan Qashqai.
