- "An affordable, no frills, fuel-efficient compact sedan. When 'ample headroom' is central to the marketing campaign, what you see is what you get."
- ―Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.
The front of the Asea has the headlights on both sides of the car, with the grill being situated in the high-center of the front with the Declasse badge in the center. The side has character lines mainly on the front doors, with the wheel wells bulging slightly to the outside. The hood bulges upwards lightly, and increases in height as it gets to the windshield. The other character line spans the entire length of the car, untul it gets to the rear effortlessly. The Asea features a tall, narrow body that is significantly inspired from the second generation Chevrolet Aveo/Sonic sedan (also known as Holden Barina in Australia and Chevrolet Lova in Asia), as well as the Suzuki Aerio/Liana, with frontal influences from both Dacia Logan facelift and Renault Logan 2013 and the rear from the first generation Dacia Logan with a high rear decklid. The licence plate is situated under the trunk lid. It has many tuner modification options and sticker bomb options in some part of the car, hinting that this car is much more suitable for youngsters and hipsters in San Andreas. If you look closely in the interior there will be a digital clock near the windshield.
The Asea has a decent top speed and great acceleratiom despite its small 1.3L Inline 4 engine. Handling is superb. It can easily do both bootlegs and J-turns, but unlike the Futo, it has more grip and is easier to control. The car is a good example of a sleeper, a car which is seemingly underwhelming, but performs very well. Crash deformation, however, is poor due to its lightweight body as it can only withstand 2-3 hits before the wheels are jammed.
