Promoted by Karin as an "attainable luxury vehicle", the Asterope is the perfect car for the middle manager who knows deep down he'll never be a senior executive but can't quite bring himself to admit it yet.

From the front, I can definitely see similarities.

Three vents on the bumper, similar shape and layout, including fog lamps.

The headlights aren't the same shape, but are a little similar.

The shape of the grille is similar, but the design is obviously different. The trim around the grille is also split by the hood on both cars.

The rest of the car looks less like the Avalon, and more like a Camry, especially in the rear.


In headlights u can see the orange detail, is the same on the 2 cars

In Toyota model range, the Avalon 2010 is the most compatible model in my opinion

Oh, for the love of god, can we not start another flame war!?

He's saying that the developers are based in the U.K, the game takes place in the U.S, so there are bound to be some cars that are not U.S bound. They probably never heard of the Brazilian Cobalt, but the one in the game is the Premier, which is based on the 2005-2010 Cobalt, and it's the NA-Spec. Also, Rockstar is U.K based, but they do have studios in North America and other parts of Europe.

To cut it short, it's a Camry, not a Brazilian Cobalt.

Excuse me, but I don't think that this car was modelled after a Brazilian four-door. It clearly is a 2007-2011 Toyota Camry. Plus, the Cobalt you're talking about was never sold in America, only the 2005-2010 model was, which looks nothing like this car.


Never sold in north america* yes, i know, but in design, it's much more like brazilian Cobalt than any japanese sedan.

Why are you comparing it to your local Brazilian car? It looks nothing like it and Karin (Toyota) is supposed to be Japanese. Also, Los Santos is in the USA, not Brazil.


First of all, the vehicle don't need to be american to appear in GTA V, second, the Cobalt (obvious, the previous gen) was american model, the Asterope doesn't have anything like corolla/camry/etc. See the red lines, the chrome trim above the plate, the Crystal clear tailight, etc. SEE THE RED LINES!

Here's a 2008 Lexus LS460, I think the resemblance is much more in tune than Audi or Hyundai. Although I'm sure Rockstar took styling cues from multiple cars in the creation of the fictional one.

Here's another possibility: Subaru Legacy.

Sure, the Legacy is AWD, while this is RWD (supposed to be FWD), but the model name is a possible hint: Asterope.

That name for a concept version of the 4th generation Subaru Legacy B4 at the 2004 Tokyo Auto Salon.

And, looking at the front end, there does look like there MAY be a bit of 5th generation Legacy in the design.

It's a Lexus LS 2000-2008, and is very similar also to a Mercedes-Benz W220. LS 400 or S500.

Actually, according to the Social Club, the Asterope and Sultan do have relatively similar stats.

They share the same speed stats, the Sultan's acceleration stat is less than a whole bar higher. Braking is less than a whole bar better in the Asterope, and the Asterope only has slightly better traction than the Sultan.

socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/career/vehicles/gtaonline/sedans/asterope

Check the stats. They're not really that far apart.

It's not even close to Sultan, except the fact that both are japanese sedans.

this is just an extremely watered down version of the sultan, with no customization avaliable.

Yeah, it's more or less a Camry/Corolla mashed together to create that, Corolla styling cues, and Camry's luxury-ish bits like the chrome parts.
US carcrasher88

2013-10-10 02:37
I can definitely see Corolla in this (a tiny bit of 05-07, but a lot more 09-10 or 11-13), with a couple hints of Lexus LS in there (like the taillights).

Kinda looks like R* tried to make their own version of a more modern Corolla that looks a bit more upscale.

I fail to see this being a Corolla size wise, the headlights, MAYBE, but no. If anything, if you said it's based on the last(not current)but last gen of the Corolla, then that would be more plausible.

I know its a long shot but it reminded me of an '04 Altima. If its really the same car as the one with the rear end in the image above, it might be a mix between Camry and Altima, a generic popular Japanese sedan knockoff.

It's not blury or small enough to cause a problem, look at the rear of the Schafter, the proportions are identical.


You're missing out the other factors that show that it is a Schafter, Look at the exhaust pipes on under the rear bumper, the one in the pic doesn't show that, and what that shows is a single one coming out from the left side of the bumper. The Schafter doesn't have that, you can clearly see the twin exhausts from a distance, and I've even spawned a white one to compare in both distances. Plus, the one in the pic looks like it has a chrome surround around the license plate, the Schafter doesn't look like that from a distance. And, the windows on the Schafter have a slight angle going downward towards the front, the one in the pic doesn't have that.

And, compare that to this, Not saying it's an Oracle, but it's close.

May as well be the non-modified version of the Schafter since all there was in TBOGT was Tony's which was the "Avant-garde" trim in Mercedes speak, and the non-modified version, which was dubbed "Elegance" trim was only spawnable via trainers or mods, for some odd reason the car lacked a certain traffic spawning code, but still spawns in traffic nevertheless when spawned via trainer. Though I'm still iffy about it, picture's small and blurry and despite it having similar features, it might be a whole different car once the game's released.
