Karin is an automotive company in the HD Universe of Grand Theft Auto.

Overview

The company is most likely based off the real-life manufacturers Toyota or Lexus, as Karin's logo bears a strong resemblance to Lexus's corporate logo, yet some Karin cars are inspired by Toyota models.

However, the Sultan RS and Korean Mob Sultan are modified like Subarus even though they are both based on a Lexus (luxury subsidiary owned by Toyota) combined with a Mitsubishi; and the Intruder is based on Infiniti. But it should be noted that Toyota owns a small part of Subaru and the companies have made certain vehicles together (Toyota 86 & Subaru BRZ). It can also be implied that Karin is a Japanese luxury car manufacturer.

The name might be a parody of Kia as Kia and Karin are spelt similarly and are both girls' names; the logo also bears resemblance to their corporate logo (mainly the top left tip of the "K"). The name might also be a reference to Toyota's Carina series.
