The '''Kuruma''' is a four-door sedan seen in [[Grand Theft Auto III]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]. It is also a sedan cut during the development of [[Grand Theft Auto:Vice City]] and [[Grand Theft Auto:Vice City Stories]], assumed by some to be replaced by the [[Admiral]].

The [[Karin]] '''Kuruma''' is a [[Japan]]ese four-door sedan featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto III]],'' ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]'' and featured in the upcoming ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]'' [[Heists Update]]. It is also a sedan cut during the development of ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', assumed by some to be replaced by the [[Admiral]] (''GTA VC''/''VCS'') and the [[Feroci]] (''GTA IV'').

It is also featured as a car brand in another Rockstar Games title, Midnight Club Street Racing, with 3 different models.

===Design===
The word "kuruma" means "automobile" in Japanese ([[:wp:ja:車|車]], くるま), which may suggest that the car is of Japanese origin. "Kuruma" may also be a reference to the [[wikipedia:Toyota Camry|Toyota Camry]], the bestselling midsize sedan in the United States, with "Camry" being an Anglicized phonetic transcription of the Japanese word kanmuri (冠, かんむり) for "crown". (Toyota has a naming tradition of using the word "crown" for primary models, starting with the [[wikipedia:Toyota Crown#First_.28RS_Model-S30_Model:_1955_to_1962.29 |Toyota Crown]] in 1955, continuing with the [[wikipedia:Toyota Corona|Toyota Corona]] and [[wikipedia:Toyota Corolla|Toyota Corolla]], the Latin words for "crown" and "small crown", respectively.) Kuruma is also [[wp:Arabic Language|Arabic]] for "pussy".
 
   
The GTA III rendition of the car is strongly based on a [[wp:Chrysler Sebring|2001-2006 Chrysler Sebring]] sedan or a [[wp:Dodge Intrepid|1998-2004 Dodge Intrepid]] (both the design and the fact that the car has a longitudinally mounted engine in Xbox version), and it comes with uncolored (gray) bumpers and trims, giving it the appearance of a base model. The Kuruma in GTA III is also said to bear some resemblance to a [[wp:Buick Century|Buick Century]]. For GTA Liberty City Stories, the Kuruma has slight cosmetic changes to make it look like a [[wp:Dodge_Stratus#First_generation_.281995.E2.80.932000.29|1995-2000 Dodge Stratus]] or a generic Japanese sedan during the late 90's, the front appearing to resemble a [[WP:Honda Accord#Fifth_generation_.281994.E2.80.931997.29|1994–1997 Honda Accord]], and its bumpers and trim are body-colored to give it a more upscale look, although there still are base Kurumas with unpainted trims and bumpers, especially if the car is sprayed white or grey.

The Kuruma is the first car made available to the player in both GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, in the missions "[[Give Me Liberty]]" and "[[Home Sweet Home]]", respectively, probably due to the fact that it handles relatively neutrally. When originally introduced in GTA III, the car is not seen driven on the streets of [[Portland Island]], but is parked in various locations in the island; in GTA Liberty City Stories, the car is present in Portland traffic.

The [[Karin]] Kuruma comes back in the [[Heists Update]]. The overall shape and front fascia of the car seems to be based on the [[wikipedia:Mitsubishi_Lancer_Evolution|Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X]] while the rear end is based on a [[wikipedia:Subaru_Impreza|2015 Subaru WRX STI]] .It appears in an armoured variant, similar to the [[Duke O'Death]], modified with metal plates in the front and side windows and protective bars over the head and tail lights.
In GTA III, the Kuruma has a V6 engine and a FWD powertrain. Whilst the engine is powerful enough to propel the light Kuruma to high straight line speeds, the front wheel drive layout causes understeer. Players may therefore favor using the handbrake to swing round turns at high speed. In GTA: Liberty City Stories, it is powered by a small, yet gusty, four cylinder engine.

The Karin Kuruma is a Japanese four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and featured in the upcoming Grand Theft Auto Online Heists Update. It is also a sedan cut during the development of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV, assumed by some to be replaced by the Admiral (GTA VC/VCS) and the Feroci (GTA IV).

It is also featured as a car brand in another Rockstar Games title, Midnight Club Street Racing, with 3 different models.

OverviewEdit

DesignEdit

3D Universe Edit

The word "kuruma" means "car" in Japanese (, くるま), which may suggest that the car is of Japanese origin. "Kuruma" may also be a reference to the Toyota Camry, the bestselling midsize sedan in the United States, with "Camry" being an Anglicized phonetic transcription of the Japanese word kanmuri (冠, かんむり) for "crown". (Toyota has a naming tradition of using the word "crown" for primary models, starting with the Toyota Crown in 1955, continuing with the Toyota Corona and Toyota Corolla, the Latin words for "crown" and "small crown", respectively.)

The GTA III rendition of the car is strongly based on a 2001-2006 Chrysler Sebring sedan or a 1998-2004 Dodge Intrepid (both the design and the fact that the car has a longitudinally mounted engine in Xbox version), and it comes with uncolored (gray) bumpers and trims, giving it the appearance of a base model. The Kuruma in GTA III is also said to bear some resemblance to a 1997-2001 Honda Accord. For GTA Liberty City Stories, the Kuruma has slight cosmetic changes to make it look like a generic Japanese sedan during the late 90's, the front appearing to resemble a 1992-1995 European Toyota Corona or a 1997-2000 Nissan Altima, the taillights from an Opel/Vauxhall/Holden/Chevrolet Vectra C and its bumpers and trim are body-colored to give it a more upscale look, although there still are base Kurumas with unpainted trims and bumpers, especially if the car is sprayed white or grey. It has styling cues from the 1995-2000 Hyundai Elantra.

The Kuruma is the first car made available to the player in both GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, in the missions "Give Me Liberty" and "Home Sweet Home", respectively, probably due to the fact that it handles relatively neutrally. When originally introduced in GTA III, the car is not seen driven on the streets of Portland Island, but is parked in various locations in the island; in GTA Liberty City Stories, the car is present in Portland traffic.

During development of GTA III, the Kuruma was originally known as the "Sentinal", not to be confused by the Sentinel which is another sedan in the final version of the same game that was previously known as the "Beamer" during development.

This article or section contains information about a subject scheduled to be featured in upcoming content.
Please do not add unconfirmed or speculative content unless it can be confirmed by its release or by Rockstar Games.

The Karin Kuruma comes back in the Heists Update. The overall shape and front fascia of the car seems to be based on the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X while the rear end is based on a 2015 Subaru WRX STI .It appears in an armoured variant, similar to the Duke O'Death, modified with metal plates in the front and side windows and protective bars over the head and tail lights.

Performance Edit

In GTA III, the Kuruma has a turbocharged four cylinder engine and a FWD powertrain. Whilst the engine is powerful enough to propel the light Kuruma to high straight line speeds, the front wheel drive layout causes understeer. Players may therefore favor using the handbrake to swing around turns at high speed. In GTA Liberty City Stories, its engine is naturally-aspirated and emits a same engine sound as the Manana, Idaho and the Perennial.

Nonetheless, the car's firm handling makes it a good choice for the first LCS car race in the mission Grease Sucho.

The Kuruma possesses almost identical handling properties to the GTA III rendition of the Taxi.
