All New Lacetti And UniVerse MPV Concept - The 2004 Model Year Daewoo Tacuma | Part Three

Daewoo Tacuma


UniVerse - Versatile MPV Study with Common Rail Diesel Engine

UniVerse, GM Daewoo’s latest concept vehicle, offers a glimpse at the company’s plans for future generation MPVs and powertrain technology. The name says it all: thanks to its extreme variability, the MPV concept – on show for the first time in Europe – can be used universally for business, leisure and more. In addition to seating nine passengers, the UniVerse can easily be converted for sleeping or camping; to use as a mobile office or to transport bulky loads. Two sliding doors allow easy access to the interior of the mid-size MPV.

Good utilisation of space is made possible by the long wheelbase and the modern monocab design, with a vertical rear end and an almost horizontal roofline. The designers have turned a new page with the interior design: large screens dominate the instrument panel. On board the UniVerse, the latest infotainment technology provides telematic services and offers nine occupants the chance to enjoy high-quality entertainment.

The Daewoo UniVerse is powered by a refined common-rail diesel engine. The three-litre, V6 unit has four-valve technology and delivers 140 kW/191 hp @ 3,000 rpm. The maximum torque - an imposing 408 Nm - is available at 2,000 rpm.

Tacuma - New Face for Practical Family MPV

The Daewoo Tacuma enters the 2004 model year with new styling cues inside and out. The re-designed front emphasises the elegant design of the 4.35 metre long compact MPV. The radiator grille now features a broad chrome strip that more harmoniously complements the sweeping contours of the vehicle, created by Italian designer Pininfarina. The almond-shaped headlights identify the compact MPV at once as a family member of GM Daewoo range. New 15-inch light-alloy wheels (option) round off the Tacuma’s stylish new look.

The interior of the five-seat Tacuma also features a fresh new look for the 2004 model year. Two new fabric designs for the SE, SX and CDX versions, considerably freshen the interior. The top model has a metallic finish on the instrument panel and is additionally equipped with remote control central locking, including alarm. Air conditioning is available to provide full control of interior temperatures - this is available from the SX model.
