The "safety-pack" option includes ABS brakes and dual airbags

All Lanos' are fitted with an electronic speedometer which helps reduce noise

The front and rear bumpers are able to absorb impacts of up to 8km/h without damaging the bodywork

The car has an extensive use of high tensile sheet metal in more than a third of its structure

The front seats have an anti-submarining steel base to prevent occupants sliding down into the front of the car in the event of a crash.

Front and centre roof pillars are strengthened and the roof is fitted with reinforcement bars

The chrome-plated radiator grille has the Daewoo corporate family look

The SE's 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine develops 63kW at 5400rpm

To minimise fuel spillage in an accident, the 48-litre tank is located ahead of the rear wheels.

All fluid reservoirs in the engine bay are transparent so levels can be easily checked
