Introducing the all-new 2021 C7, Not your typical sedan.


2018 C7 (left) and 2021 C7 (right)




Saminda C7 XE ECO 3.5 V6



Engine : JA Series (Introduced in 1998) , JA35B1 (with 4th generation i-VIC)





Saminda C7 XE-L 3.5 V6



Engine : JA Series (Introduced in 1998) , JA35A1 (with 4th generation i-VIC)





Saminda C7 SpectaL 3.5 V6



Engine : JA Series (Introduced in 1998) , JA35A1 (with 4th generation i-VIC)




The Saminda C7 is a luxury full-size car produced by American Saminda Motor Manufacturing Inc,. It’s Saminda largest sedan and serves as its flagship vehicle in the United States, Canada, China and South Korea, engineered and built in America. It rides on the nS platform.

Engine
The C7 now have 2 engine option instead of it usual 1, both of the engine are the same JA Series 3.5-liter SOHC V6 engine but the ECO trim will get the JA35B1 which has a lower horsepower output for better fuel efficency, and the JA35A1 on the rest of the trim level.

Safety
The C7 is available with a full suite of crash-avoidance systems which include lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward auto brake with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross path detection, adaptive radar cruise control monitors traffic ahead and slows as needed to keep a safe distance. All that plus a stiff body structure should provide peace of mind for owners

An Auxuras ETL with Saminda C7 price tag
As both vehicles are offered with nearly identical powertrains, it would be difficult for the average person to differentiate the performance characteristics of one versus the other. Still, the Auxuras ETL offers additional luxury features and overall greater refinement than the C7.

Fresh and clean styling while still looking modern, not going overboard like a lot of todays cars, I like it.


#1220

In a world where the idea of the mass-market full-sized sedan (Maxima, Avalon, Charger/300, etc.) , as opposed to similarly sized executive cars (such as the XF, S90, E-Class, 5-Series and A6) is seemingly on its last legs, Saminda-Auxuras deserves credit for persevering with the idea to this day - the C7 deserves more respect from potential buyers, especially with its distinctive yet understated post-facelift appearance.

However, the less powerful base V6 only yields an 0.4l/km improvement in fuel economy - I would prefer it if, some time down the line, the more powerful optional V6 should be made standard across the range and the ECO trim axed. Even so, as things stand right now, this is a good choice for anyone who simply cannot stomach the thought of driving and owning an SUV, with all its inherent disadvantages.
