Daewoo Lacetti

2004 Test

Nice name, It#8217;s pronounced #8220;Laacheyti#8221;. an Italian telling you he drives a designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and the image of a Daewoo would not come to mind.

It is good And it#8217;s not a bad little car at all. GM have called it a Chevrolet a Buick Lacetti or a Pontiac

If they had, it would sounded a lot more Soprano Daewoo. But that might been going too far.

Instead, the Lacetti complements the the Kalos, the new Nubira, the facelifted and the imminent new Nubira station in providing a full range of to medium size Daewoos for money with three to 60,000 miles warranty and included.

Slightly bigger a Polo and slightly smaller a Focus, Lacettis start a 1.4 rise through a better 1.6 or 1.6 automatic, and will culminate a sporty 1.8 in summer 2004. are familiar GM Family 1 and Family II, as in of the Vauxhall range. Nothing too or ambitious.

It#8217;s the way the car drives that as a pleasant surprise. Previous were bland to the point of They were cars as appliances. They did the job, but no pleasure.

And while the Lacetti class leading in the handling it doesn#8217;t punish the press-on with irritating inertia or understeer. It grips well, at the front and the back, lets you what#8217;s happening through the wheel and doesn#8217;t charge you for all with a crashy, bone-hard The suspension is actually on the soft of absorbent, with roll in check by substantial anti bars front and rear.

The 1.6 is a bit gruff but reasonably torquey a well chosen final ratio that allows you to in 5th more than some 1.6s. It#8217;s decently out, too, with and alloys as well as the CD radio of versions. The dashboard is pleasant to The indicators are on the left, not the right.

And for the sort of money that you a run-out special Ford 1.6 Flight 3-dr.

The 1.4 is a sweeter nicer to rev, but lacking the of the 1.6 which means you have to use the a lot more. It#8217;s no slouch, And the handling is just as good as the

But you don#8217;t get aircon or alloys or rear windows, so really for more the 1.6 is better value.

harder to justify #163;1,000 on top of for the 1.6 automatic. Previously I have the automatics to the manuals in some new of cars. However this is an old Aisin four-speeder with the of no #8216;3#8217; position on the quadrant. To 3rd if you want to overtake you either to kick-down or press a button on the of the quadrant marked #8216;HOLD#8217;.

And on the motorway it#8217;s all to eager to change down to 3rd at the slightest for more speed, which it hard to drive quickly and I suspect that this will probably sell to the end of the model#8217;s customer age profile. not bad compared to the automatics of a few years

But it isn#8217;t a patch on the likes of the 3 1.6 auto.

If you want reliable with known costs for years or 60,000 miles at a bit than the going (discounted) than the Euro/Japanese competition, the Lacetti makes a good for itself. Especially since you can now some money without short-changed in the ride and handling
