The presentation of the crossover Samsung XM3

There was a demonstration of the Samsung XM3 crossover for the South Korean car market.

The novelty is not an exact copy of Renault Arkana – instead of the Global Access platform, the cross was built on the modern architecture of CMF-B, which is the basis of the Renault Captur.

  The distance between the axles is the same as the Arkana model (2720 mm), and the clearance decreased from 205 to 186 mm. It is worth noting the presence of modern electronic assistants, such as automatic braking systems, tracking markings and monitoring “blind” zones.

 Externally, the model differs from Arkana not only in logos. The novelty was equipped with a different rear bumper, which has other inserts, with stamping of a peculiar shape, and also with its own equipment for the rear lights. Headlights have LED elements.

Salon XM3 is completely new, she borrowed from the Russian “Arcana” only the steering wheel and shift paddles. Already in the initial configuration, the machine is equipped with 6 airbags and an electromechanical handbrake. The base infotainment complex has a 7-inch screen, and the flagship variation of the Samsung XM3 comes with a 9.3-inch vertical tablet and a dashboard with a 10.25-inch display.

The standard power plant is an atmospheric 1.6-liter engine in combination with a CVT. But the alternative 1.3-liter TCe turbo engine in the new model is paired with Getrag’s 7-band robot transmission with two wet clutches. Motor performance has not been disclosed. The drive is available exclusively front-wheel.

In South Korea, sales of new items should start in March this year at a cost of $ 14,800 for a standard modification and from $ 17,900 for a cross with a turbo engine.

In addition, it was recently noted that the Hyundai Breeze crossover is in high demand. This car went on sale last November.
