Samsung SM3: new official photos

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

These are new official photos of the upcoming SM3, a vehicle produced by Korean group Samsung's automotive division, Renault Samsung Motors. These photos, which were obtained by Global Auto News, show that the SM3 represents a complete change from the initial SM3 that was released in 2002.

Last June, program director Song Eung-seok told the media that the SM3 was going to be continued for as long as there is still demand. Don't be deceived by their names; the New SM3 and the SM3 are targeted at different consumers therefore there will not be any cannibalization between them.

The New SM3 uses Renault-Nissan's C-platform and is equipped with a 1.6l H4M engine, mated to a Xtronic continuously variable transmission.

Equipped with a smart card system, the car allows drivers to lock and open the door and turn on the ignition by remote control. Its safety features include Electronic Brake Force Distribution-Antilock Braking System and Brake Assist System.

The car's design borrows from the eMX (Eco Motoring Experience) concept, which was shown by Samsung at the Seoul Motor Show.

A total of 400 engineers from Renault-Samsung facilities in Japan, France and South Korea collaborated in the project. The car will be priced in Korea in the 14 million won ($11,100) range.
