Car reviews - Daewoo - Lanos - Sport 3-dr hatch
16 Jan 2001
THE dash was designed to allow the driver to see and reach the switches and controls without difficulty. The ignition key hole is declined by seven degrees to make key insertion as simple as possible. The instrument cluster fits neatly into the instrument panel without the need for additional moulding. The fuel gauge has a memory function that allows it to indicate the fuel level when the engine is turned off. Dual cupholders, not a given at this end of the market, are located below the stereo. A digital clock is located above the fan dial and easily read by all occupants. The broad front pillars can restrict vision when cornering and the steering wheel is angled slightly towards the driver's door.
Despite a substantial increase in quality over Cielo, interior trim can be prone to squeaks and groans. Every Lanos is fitted with an electronic speedometer which helps reduce noise.
