It´s not a 406.

it does resemble the facelifted peugeot 406, but as peugeot dont sell cars in america( i think... anyway if they did they would suck out there), so my gues is that it a previous (1998-2002) european spec Honda Accord

It has Peugeot 407 tail lights, but I don't think it's a Peugeot at all. (even if Rockstargames has an office in Scotland, so they could be influenced by European cars desing...)

Really, I don't know. The Mazda does look like the car, but by the look of the backgrounds of the last two images you posted look like it does not sell in the US. Some images look like they are sold in the US, like the first image of the three images you posted before. But most images of Mazda look like they're sold in Asia (China or Japan). So it's either a 1994 Mazda 323 or the 1992 Honda Civic I posted before. I'm not trying to criticize your comments or mock you or start an argument or anything. If I am, I'm sorry. I'm just saying what I think.

I still think it's an Integra, what Rockstar do is they design a car which meant to be a certain model and then change them. Most of what's on this site may not be what they intended. The Chavos could be a Ferrari for all we know :think:

I hate to say it but here's my mixture: front end of a 1994-2004 Peugeot 406, not sold in the United States, the sides look like a Acura TSX, the back looks loosely based on that of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo.

Surly another of rockstars cars that doesnt resemble anything anymore. I bet they never had in mind to model a Peugeot 406, Nissan Primera or Impreza LOL. Sometimes you cant tell what car it is, so it doesnt make any sense to find cars that dont have anything to do with the street scenes in the US or cars the carartists probably dont even know from just because theres one element that randomly has similarities with one of the car ingame. THINK before you post.

Still, the 4-door Skyline is too boxy, and it's intended to sold only in Japan. The one that imported from U.S are mostly 2-door GTS-T and GT-R

Based on heavily modified 1999 Nissan 240SX (S-14). Look at this clip taken in MC:LA (1:26) www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6QfT7bzdCM . Taillights are almost the same as in Chavos. It was just modified and turned into 4-door sedan, like Monte Carlo in SA and Allante in IV.

When you mod the game's cars sometimes you just gotta find what makes the most sense if you're modding a car that has no mods for it's real life counterpart. I.E. the Fortune, which is based off an '89-'94 Ford Thunderbird, but there are no Thunderbird mods for GTA IV, at least for the '89-'94 generation. So guess what I randomly used: Silvia S15. :p

I don't think it looks like anything really. It's a combination of lots of parts of lots of different cars, and therefore can't really be identified.
But I don't want to start another discussion, so if people are happy with Accord, that's fine.

After some research I can say it's probably meant to be a Civic parody, probably the 2003 gen.However,it has influences from the 2001 and 2007 US spec Accords and headlights of the Silvia.

I don't want to start another war, but I think the Chavos is not exactly a '94 Accord.

The grille and the headlights are certainly from a facelifted Nissan Silvia S14.

The rear is similar to a 1999-2003 Acura TL:
zombdrive.com/images/1999-acura-tl-8.jpg

The sides and the shape of the roof are possibly inspired by the 1998-2003 European Accord:
cache3.pakwheels.com/ad_pictures/722/honda-accord-euro-r-1999-7221566.png

But even if I'm wrong about the latter two, it's based on at least three different vehicles, so I think Made For Game the best solution in this case.

I must say this car doesn't seem Honda-like/Acura-like in any way in my opinion.

The front strongly resembles a Peugeot 406, the side reminds me of some Lancia, but the rear is definitely from the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

So what if Peugeot doesn't sell cars in the USA, that this car cannot be Peugeot? I seem to recall that the developers of GTA are pretty multicultural, so obviously some European developers integrated their ideas in the car designs. There are some cars in GTA that resemble Lancia's, yet Lancia never sold cars in the USA, at least not in the 80s, 90s and then on. So really it doesn't matter if a car is sold in the USA or not.
What matters is the car is to be identified, with accuracy, and the closest I can see is Peugeot at the front, Lancia side, and Mitsubishi rear.

Please remove Honda Accord, it's definitely not one. :D

I partially agree with you.
The rear is indeed based on a Lancer Evo 8, not an Acura TL.
But the front is a Silvia S14, not a Peugeot 406.
And Lancia sides? That's very unlikely.

I think the Chavos is just a generic Japanese sedan.

Well... I saw the pictures of the Silvia S14, and I have to say: 50/50. I can't agree with you, but at the same time you're not wrong. I can't agree with you because the badge front of Silvia S14, is located on the bonnet, whereas in this picture, the car has it's front badge on the grill, typical to that of the Peugeot 406.

But you're not wrong in guessing either, because the angry-looking front does resemble the Silvia S14 a bit.

Frankly speaking, I wouldn't say this car is even Japanese (except the Mitsubishi rear), I'd say this car looks more Italian with a Peugeot 406/Silvia S14 front. The body of the strongly reminds me of something Italian, like a Lancia or Maserati Quattroporte IV (fourth generation, from the late 1990s).

I don't think it's based on anything European. Dinka is Honda/Acura in the GTA Universe and the Chavos is partially based on Nissan and Mitsubishi models. I think that's enough to call it Japanese.
It might have some similarity to a Lancia, but "similar to X" is not the same as "based on X".

Hmm, good point actually. I would conclude this car is Italian-Japanese. Because you are correct, but at the same time (based on my experience with cars and my enthusiasm/knowledge), I can directly point out some Italian traits on the body, and the front is telling my Peugeot 406, that's just what I see. Japanese cars of this size are generally built with a bit of "chubbiness" on the sides. Whereas the car in the picture looks somewhat thin in design, and clearly a front wheel drive, which is a common design I've seen among French and Italian cars...

But we can agree things, and that is the car has Japanese traits (as well as Italian and Peugeot traits), and that it's certainly not a Honda Accord. This car looks nothing like a Honda Accord, because Accords are slightly chubbier in design and the rear wheels wouldn't be too far end, the'd be slightly closer, under the C-pillar.

Although now that you've made me think about, if this were to be a car in real life, I would for some reason, picture Nissan building something like this... :D

I must say... Rockstar did a pretty good job designing this car. We may never find out what this car's really based on. Unless we get a modern or older model. Looking at the comments nobody can't seem to figure it out. It may be just a fan design from employees. Who knows what this car is.
