The third generation (1992-1998) Yuro Glaze was launched alongside the Yuro Sabre sports car, keeping the original bodystyle as the previous two generations. This generation included a revised front end with fixed head lights, and an overall rounder and larger look than the previous.
As with the older generations, the car was initially available in 3 trims; The 2.4 S base trim, 2.4 GLS luxury-oriented trim, and the more sport-oriented LS Turbo. Power, like the previous generation, was provided by the same 2.4L SOHC inline-6.
The 2.4 S was available with air-conditioning, power adjustable heated seats and cloth upholstery with leather and maple scattered around minimally. Power was 155HP and could be paired with either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual.
The GLS had leather upholstery with maple bits scattered around, a leather wrapped heated steering wheel, and alloy wheels. Power was 210HP from a turbocharged engine and was only paired with a 4-speed automatic.
The LS Turbo was available in either coupe or sedan, and had interior amenities similar to the 2.4 S. The suspension was tuned towards handling more and the car ran on alloy wheels. Power was 245HP and was paired with either a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual.
Other standard features included a console mounted 6-Disc CD changer, power moonroof and LSDs for the LS Turbo trims.
The Glaze went on sale in summer 1992 for about $28,000 ($47,000 adjusted for inflation.) for the 2.4 S, with the fully loaded 2.4 GLS going for $35,000. ($55,000 adjusted for inflation)
The LS Turbo went on sale later in early 1993 for $32,000. ($50,000 adjusted for inflation.)
The first car to be branded with the RS-GT moniker was the Glaze. haha poor timing
The Glaze RS-GT featured a “276” HP engine, and was only equipped with a 5-speed manual. Performance and handling greatly exceeded the already very sporty LS Turbo Glazes.
These were the result of a lot of changes, including a strengthened chassis, highly tuned suspension, and a highly stripped down interior, with sound insulation, the stereo system and any other customary creature comforts deemed “unneeded” for track driving. (This includes the rear seats.)
The end result was a very capable track sedan that could tackle any track thrown at it.
Like the Sabre, these would be only sold exclusively in select European markets, and in Japan.
