The Daewoo Lacetti Sport

The Daewoo Lacetti Sport


Motor Show Live 2004 sees the debut of the flagship of the Lacetti range - the Lacetti Sport on sale in October.

Lacetti Sport – great style, great value

This five-door family hatchback has already received a great deal of positive comment for style and value – it was designed by the acclaimed Italian stylist Giugiaro. Lacetti Sport adds further sporty style cues that enhance the design without compromising its already good looks. With sports-style, two-tone leather trim, lowered suspension, a full body kit, sports exhaust, leather steering wheel and gear knob, all fitted as standard, Lacetti Sport offers a high level of style, comfort and safety (with front and side airbags and anti-lock brakes as standard) and above all, is exceptional value for money.

Additional items unique to this Sport variant are a sports-style grille with mesh intake, sporty pedals, door sill finishers, a tailgate spoiler and even unique floor mats featuring a ‘Sport’ logo. The car is aimed at young single people and families looking for an appealing contemporary car with lots of interior space that stands out from the crowd. Lacetti Sport will be available for around £12,000 (to be confirmed) on the road complete with the Daewoo Peace of Mind package of three-years’/60,000 miles free servicing, three-years’/60,000 mile warranty and three-years’ AA Total recovery.

Lively performance with economy

Lacetti Sport is not an overt GTi but neither is it a slouch. Powered by a 1.8 litre 16 valve engine developing 122 Ps at 5,800 rpm and a maximum torque of 165 Nm at 4,000 rpm, it has a top speed of 120 mph and a 0-62 time of 9.5 seconds and returns over 37.6 mpg on the combined (MVEG) cycle. Full performance and fuel economy figures will be announced later.

The Lacetti model line up comprises just three derivatives. It is an uncomplicated range and is fully equipped as standard, leaving little to be desired. Initially, two derivatives were available – 1.4SE and 1.6SX – now Lacetti Sport completes the range.

Lacetti Sport – totally equipped

As the top model, Lacetti Sport has few options, it is totally equipped with a wide range of stylish and practical features including air conditioning, front and side airbags, power steering, ABS, unique-style 16" alloy wheels with hi-power silver finish, height-adjustable driver's seat, rake and reach adjustment for the steering column, keyless entry central door locking and there are powered and heated door mirrors and electric windows all-round. In addition to the two-tone leather/Alcantara interior, the steering wheel and gear knob are also leather-covered. Exterior door handles and bodyside mouldings are colour-keyed. Lacetti Sport features a Blaupunkt single CD player as standard and, new to this market sector, a DAB digital radio, single CD player as an option. Six speakers for exceptional sound quality, along with steering wheel audio controls, are standard on the Lacetti Sport.
