"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 Declasse Asea is a compact four-door sedan in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Design

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 Dacia/Renault Logan 2013 and the rear from the first generation Dacia Logan with a high rear decklid. Its rear is similar to 2004 Chevrolet Malibu. The license 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. In closer inspection of the interior, the player can see a digital clock near the windshield.

In terms of main aesthetics, the grill is situated in the high-center of the front and 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, until it gets to the rear effortlessly.

Performance

GTA V

Asea,Declasse

Engine close-up.

The Asea has a lot more power than its relatively small body shape would suggest. The 4 Inline engine apparently boosts more power than its larger counterpart. 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. It should be noted that the Asea shares the exact similar performance with the Blista in terms of power and handling, being small but makes up with above average performance. The only downside of the car is the mediocre durability due to its lightweight body; the Asea can only withstand 3-4 frontal crashes before the engine fails or the axle breaks down.

Trivia

  • The default radio stations for the Asea are Soulwax FM and FlyLo FM.
  • The Asea, along with the Benefactor Panto, have stickerbomb modifications available, hinting at the trend most commonly used by youngsters.
    • The Stickerbomb options have stickers such as Atomic and Terroil, but also have those of Maibatsu and Karin, even though this is a Declasse vehicle.
  • The real-life Chevrolet Aveo, which the Asea is based on, is one of the best-selling Chevrolet cars in most developing countries around the world, particularly in East Asia and Latin America.
    • Its spelling is similar to ASEAN, only without the 'N'. This might be a reference to Chevrolet Aveo's popularity in the Southeast Asia.
    • Asea and Aveo both sound phonetically similar. They both have the vowels A and E along with the same number of syllables.
  • In GTA Online, the Asea sells for $1,200 at Los Santos Customs.
  • Like some vehicles in GTA V, the car has two seams defining where the front and rear bumpers should split if shot or damaged. The bumpers actually split from the lower seams.
  • In the original edition, the steering wheel features a Declasse badge. However, in the enhanced version, it has a blank steering wheel.
