The Sakura Aquila City is a car in Just Cause 2.


The Sakura Aquila City is a small compact car.

It's a two-door coupe, resembling the real world fourth-generation (1991-1994) Toyota Tercel, fifth generation Mitsubishi Mirage, Mazda Famila and the Honda Civic Sedan. Also the rear resembles the 1981-1992 European Ford Escort.

It can be seen in black, dark red, orange, dark blue, dark green and greyish white.

It's one of the 4 similar vehicles in the Sakura series:


While flimsy, light and with poor durability, the car is capable of good acceleration and top speed. Steering is also competent and due to it being front wheel drive, spinouts are rare at lower speeds. However, at or near its top speed, there's significant body roll and overall twitchiness and it bounces violently over bumps (which can sometimes cause it just to spontaneously spin out and crash on its own), which make it difficult to control. It reverses fairly fast and can do J-turns a lot easier than most other cars. It's a good choice for road trips as it isn't too fast and makes the dreariest drives a stroll in the park. For off-roading, try the Space version, which is much more common on dirt.

The car is not exactly a good getaway vehicle, because small arms fire will quickly get the engine billowing smoke, without good evasive manuevers. It fares well when doing jumps over ramps, getting a good few seconds of air-time from a decent run-up. Just don't crash into too many things, or your car becomes scrap before you've travelled anywhere.


It might just be the most common car in Panau.


Burned wrecks of a car very similar to this one are found in many places throughout Panau. Those are usually located in small villages and Gas stations in Panau. Two are at Karl Blaine's Residence.

It borrows most of its body from the Aquila City, but the grille and taillights from the Sakura Aquila Metro ST. Its wheels seem to be the same as the ones from the Chevalier Traveller SD.
