Iran Khodro is famous by their Samand, based on the Peugeot’s veteran 405. Recently the Iranian have released a new model, titled Dena, which is a further evolution of the French car.

It was designed locally. Almost all body panels are new, the prototype of the vehicle is recognizable only in door outlines. Considering that the designers had to work with a 25 old car, they deserve a compliment, especially for the lighting and interior.

Apart from design the Dena can boast of improved safety, both for the passengers and for the pedestrians, and a modernized suspension, and engines. The no frills version will get a unit with 113 hp power output, doing a hundred in 11.6 seconds and consuming 11.2 l/km.

It is going to go on sale in April 2012 at a price of $14000, and Russia is among the main target markets. The would-be production volume is 35000 cars in 2012, 80000 – in 2013, and 100000 – between 2015 and 2017.
