1992 Yuro Glaze | Three Generations

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.)


Glaze RS-GT

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.

1992 Yuro Classique | Flagship Sedan; Ver. 2


“If you can afford this car, surely you can afford paying the damn taxes.”


The second generation model Yuro Classique was introduced in early 1992. This generation kept the bodystyle of the previous, meaning it was rather boxy and large looking. Differences included a revised front and rear fascia design in touch with other Yuro models such as the Glaze.
The car, like the previous generation, was offered in 3 trim models; The base S, mid-tier SL, and the range-topping GL.
The base S featured cloth upholstery, power tilt and telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel and power-operated adjustable heated seats. The only available engine choice was a 3.0L V6 producing 190HP mated to a 4-speed automatic.
The mid-tier SL featured either cloth or leather upholstery, individual front and rear climate control, headlight wipers, alloy wheels and extra chrome exterior bits. Engine was similar to the base S.
The flagship GL model featured full leather upholstery, genuine Canadian maple wood grain, leather wrapped heated steering wheel, optional genuine bear skin carpets, and body-color body moulding. Engine choices were either a 3.0L V6 with 200HP or a 5.0L V8 with 290HP.
Other features standard were; A console-mounted 6-disc CD changer, a Laxman premium sound system, heated seats, adjustable cruise control, power-operated moonroof and integrated foglights.

The car went on sale with a price tag of $30,000 for the base S trim ($55,000 adjusted for inflation), with the midrange SL going for $40,000 ($70,000 adjusted for inflation), and the top of the line GL going for $60,000 for the V6 model and $64,000 for the V8 option ($96,000 and $103,000 respectively adjusted for inflation).

I’ve just noticed that the '92 Classique uses the same body as the original - or does it? If I’m right, I would rather treat the second-generation car as a heavy facelift of its predecessor.

As for the Chieftain and Commander, both of them would have easily lived up to their names by taking huge chunks out of the American SUV and light truck markets, at a time when these vehicles really started to gain popularity among the public.

well, if the facelift is heavy enough to the point it would warrant a new generation, wouldn’t it? and its not like an updated fascia are the only new things in the second generation Classique :wink:

Happy New Year from Yuro!

Here's to another decade!

What could be the car on the left, you may ask? Let’s just say it’s rather special, and we’ll leave you up to figure out what it could be.

Given that the Sabre is one of Yuro’s most iconic models, failing to replace it would be criminal - so I suspect that the car on the left is the all-new 2020 Sabre, their first such car since the long-lived original.
