Asüna was a hostage import vehicles marque made in 1993 for the Canadian showcase by General Motors as a partner to Geo. It was one of two successors to the Passport marque, which had a comparative expectation.Going before the Asüna marque, Passport sold a Korean (Daewoo) made marker built Opel Kadett E known as the Passport Optima (which hit Canadian shores in 1991) and also a choice of Isuzu autos and Suvs. General Motors Canada transformed its marking technique in 1988, disbanding Passport (the Optima was rebadged as Pontiac Lemans). Isuzu was assembled together with Saab and GM’s new, import-battling Saturn division to structure Saturn-Saab-Isuzu dealerships. The Geo marque was presented in Canada in (model year) 1992, offered at Chevrolet-Oldsmobile-Cadillac merchants (who had been offering the Geo marque’s items as Chevrolets from 1988 until the marque’s presentation). Offers of Geo vehicles were generally fruitful, provoking Pontiac-Buick-GMC merchants to ask for GM Canada to give a lineup of comparable “import” vehicles. Asüna was made to satisfy this interest.
The Pontiac Lemans model name was dropped inside and out in favour of trimline designations, offering as Asüna SE in base trim hatchbacks and vehicles, and as Asüna GT as a higher trim hatchback. The Asüna lineup was balanced by the Sunfire and Sunrunner taking the GMC Tracker’s place in the Pontiac-Buick-GMC lineup.
Asüna deals couldn’t match Geo’s, and the Asüna marque was dispensed with in 1994. The Se/gt and Sunfire were dropped from the GM Canada lineup and Sunrunner was rebadged as a Pontiac.
