Saminda’s CR5 is one of those go-to options for families on the go. With the introduction of the all-new completely redesigned 2013 Saminda CR5, the Japanese automaker is hoping that a new, sleek skin will reinvigorate CR5 sales.

It’s is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine making 285bhp , the CR5 is no slouch, returning up to 20 MPG in the city and as much as 25 MPG on the highway. Starting at $29,995, the 2013 CR5 promises to continue Saminda’s trend of building high-quality, reliable vehicles. **[/quote]

[quote]**The Saminda CR6 (Based on the C5) is a mid-size crossover SUV manufactured by Japanese automaker Saminda

The CR6 slots below the CR5 in size in Saminda’s SUV lineup; the CR6 is longer but has two rows of seating compared to the CR5’s three and has approximately 60cu ft less interior space.

The CR6 is a hatchback/wagon variation of the C5 and shares the same platform. The CR6 is powered by the 3.5-liter V6 engine and a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive

The CR6 is highly criticism by it poor handling and ungainly styling**[/quote]

Saminda Kirei


Engine : I Series , I06F

[quote]**The Saminda Kirei is a kei car produced by Saminda for the Japanese market , Government regulations could distort the free market. In Japan, government regulations created a special kind of cars , Kei cars, or light automobiles in official terms. They are limited to 3.4 meters long and 1.48 meters wide, powered by motors no larger than 660 c.c. and produce no more than 64 ps, compared to normal cars they are benefited by lower tax rates, license fees and insurance

Compared with other K-cars, the baby Saminda is noticeably more refined and better built. Its chassis feels generally stiffer. Its sound insulation is more effective. Its interior is made of classier materials and assembled in a way more like bigger cars. **[/quote]

For some, being bold is taking on the urban life. For others, being revolutionary drives them forward. And then there are those who just do it all. Just like the all-new Saminda CR1, From its responsive 1.8-liter i-VIC® to the more powerful 1.5-liter i-VIC ProAIR® engine , the CR1 is a symbol for the bold and revolutionary. **[/quote]

Saminda C3 SpectaL 1.5T (Featuring Saminda Crystal Headlight Technology)


Engine : RB Series , RB15F2

[quote]**The C3 is a compact car manufactured and sold by Japanese automaker Saminda , available in 5 trims, ranging from the X (MT6) to the SpectaL (6spd AT) , This Saminda marks the transition from high-revving, naturally aspirated tradition to factory turbocharging. It isn’t likely to go back, so it’s pretty critical that Saminda gets it right.

Instead of trying to build a car intended specifically to excel in North America, Saminda went with a global platform. Benchmarks were set at the level of European luxury sedans from AMW , Cervus and Montes. Admittedly, that’s a pretty lofty goal. We didn’t expect that the new C3 has an AMW grade comfort while a lower price tag.

For 2014, C3 sedans get two engine options: either a naturally aspirated 1.8-liter inline-4 making 143 hp or a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-4 pumping out a healthy 160 (177hp for SpectaL trim). The engine options are determined at the trim level, with the X powered by the 1.8-liter, while the XE , XE-L and SpectaL editions come equipped with the 1.5-liter engine.

The SpectaL trim features enchanced ‘‘Saminda Crystal Headlight Technology’’. Saminda said that the Hybrid and the Spec-V model will not be available as almost 80% of the sales is on the regular C3.

Well … this is probably the best C3 to date when it comes to comfort, power and safety, and with base models starting at $19,000, it will be worthy of at least a look … if not a drive home.

[size=150]Global CEO of Saminda , Shibuya Kuge , to step down and replaced by a 25 years experience Saminda R&D Chief Engineer , Yuko Nagoya.[/size]

(C5 Teased for 2014 debut)

Saminda Motor Co. announced that Yuko Nagoya, currently the company’s R&D Chief , will become Senior Managing Officer effective in Jan 2014, and will become President, Chief Executive Officer

Mr. Shibuya Kuge : Thank you all for joining us today , i will step down as the CEO of Saminda Motor Co. and will pass my position to Yuko Nagoya which is currently the R&D Chief of Saminda , i suceeded Mr. Hiroshi Kondo and took over as CEO of Saminda on 2007 , when Saminda was going thru a massive recall of ball joint failures , more then 5 millions vehicles were affected , my immediate task was to overcome this and we finally managed to fix our reputation by 2009. Its was a crucial year which is also a diffcult task , but it’s not just me alone , i want to thanks our team onces again that make Saminda what Saminda is today.

Over the pass approximately 8 years , all of you have taken such a good care of me and supporting and providing with cooperation and i would like to extend my appreciation. Thank you so much.

Mr. Yuko Nagoya : Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen , i am Yuko Nagoya , we can see Mr. Shibuya Kuge efforts of bringing Saminda up again ever since the worst massive recall ever happened in 2007 , as a new President of Saminda from tomorrow onwards , i believe it’s my role to continue the future of Saminda with more exciting cars and bring value to our customers , as well as to provide new products with outstanding performance at an affordable price. In fact , this is what Saminda is good at , and meet all results of any expectation for Saminda. However , reviving Auxuras is a bit of challenging , The brand has struggled to carve out a clear identity of luxury label. The brand sold less then 200,000 units last year and sold less then 10,000 in China, hence, i will make my effort and rebulid a new ‘‘Auxuras’’ , to carve out a image of what a Luxury vehicles is.

Thank you guys for your time today , I would like to thank you all for your support for Saminda.
