Ousting the competent but ageing Nubira, the Toyota Corolla-rivalling Lacetti sedan was meant to be the main thrust of Daewoo’s model-led revival, but in the end buyers mistrusted the South Korean brand, with the Daewoo name dissolving from Australian new car price lists from late 2004.

Meanwhile, the Lacetti is a surprisingly likeable package. Pretty Italian styling, a fairly spacious body, pleasant cabin and good equipment levels make for a value-packed small car.

Power comes courtesy of an eager 90kW/165Nm 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine related to the Holden’s Astra. Gearbox choices are a five-speed manual or smooth four-speed automatic.

Included are dual front airbags, air-conditioning, power steering, keyless entry, power windows and an alarm.

The Limited from late 2003 adds anti-lock brakes, alloy wheels, climate control air-con and leather trim.
