Car reviews - Daewoo - Nubira - sedan

The Car

9 May 2001

The Nubira was originally developed under the control of former Porsche engineering chief Dr Ulrich Bez

The 98kW, 2.0-litre Holden four-cylinder engine is the standard Nubira engine

Twin camshaft, 16-valve engine produces 185Nm of torque at 4400rpm

Nubira uses independent MacPherson strut suspension at front with a dual-link independent layout at the rear

Suspension was re-rated for 1999 facelift

The rear suspension, when cornering or braking, creates a slight toe-in which improves stability

The location of the front suspension has been optimised to reduce changes in both castor and chamber angles when the wheels pass over bumps

Sports Pack option includes 15-inch alloy wheels, four-channel anti-lock brakes, dual front airbags, metallic grain plastic on doors and instrument panel

Restyled interior features a new one-piece instrument panel claimed by Daewoo to be more rattle resistant than previous unit

Daewoo says the more upright instrument panel allows easier access to switches and controls

Driver's airbag inflates with less force to help prevent injury. Passenger's airbag is optional

Four-wheel disc brakes are now standard on Nubira

Boot lid has been redesigned with a higher lip to improve aerodynamic downforce

Larger external rear view mirrors use a more aerodynamic shape to reduce wind noise

Door trims have also been redesigned and feature wider armrests as well as chrome handles

The Nubira features flush side window glazing and integral door frame seals

Front and rear bumpers can absorb low-speed impacts of up to 8km/h

The passenger compartment contains several safety features built into the structure to spread the load in the event of a side impact

Daewoo is fitted with a full-size spare wheel
