Matiz Xtra - Under £6,000
Matiz has spawned several highly successful limited editions during its lifetime and in its Xtra incarnation is sure to appeal to both existing and new owners alike. With a striking (and free of charge) option of front to rear body stripe maximising the cheeky character of the 5-door Matiz, unique design 13" alloy wheels and RDS radio/single CD player and speaker upgrade along with twin airbags and power steering and with Daewoo’s Peace of Mind package, Matiz Xtra 0.8 is superb value at £5,995 on the road. For just £300 more, a 1.0 litre engine is available offering 64Ps, a 24% increase over the 0.8 litre version.
Kalos Xtra - Under £7,000
This new model continues the theme of providing outstanding value for the Daewoo customer. At £6,995 on the road, Kalos Xtra 1.2 is positioned very competitively for a supermini. With 5 doors as standard, Kalos Xtra has a class leading equipment package and ownership costs are minimised with Daewoo’s Peace of Mind package. Unique 14" alloy wheels are a strong distinguishing feature accompanied by dual front airbags, ABS, remote central door locking, engine immobiliser, electric front windows and height adjustable steering column plus that all-important single CD player. Further value comes from an insurance grouping of just 3E.
In addition, Kalos Xtra can be ordered with an Xtra+ pack – for £300 (the price of metallic paint alone from some competitors), customers can take advantage of metallic or mica paint and a 6 CD autochanger.Published 14 January 2004
