When we tested the Matiz for the time, the 2002 model car was a relatively new kid on the small car block, and it us despite having a tiny engine. A lot of other small have since filtered our hands. A year or so later, with a new 1.0-litre four-cylinder how does the Daewoo Matiz now

The concise answer is; very One of the largest motor companies in the now own and run Daewoo; indeed, General now refer to the company as GM Daewoo to prevent embarrassing scenarios Daewoo-branded electrical goods). If you an interest in the US car market, you will noticed that GM market the Reno (shown at the 2004 Auto Show ), which is on in the UK as the Daewoo Lacetti. In fact, the UK is on the up after a few years in stagnation.

Along with the new Lacetti we will be getting an all-new and Nubira Station Wagon year to complement the facelifted MPV, and of course the car featured – the little Matiz.

One has to be careful using the word cheap in the of a car. Many cars this tag, but a lot less are good value for money you take a look under the sticker in the showroom. The low cost of the is not under scrutiny here

The range starts with the 0.8 SE at on-the-road, with the special 1.0 Xtra version pictured coming in at a miserly Ј6,295.

The impish exterior does not the low price. All panel gaps are Proportions may be a little odd thanks to the short and slim body, but the is smiley, and the Matiz is a distinctive especially in the Golden Yellow hue here.

The first hint at pinching comes when I for the central locking button on the key; I find myself by actually having to use the key in the door

The door handle itself is robust. Stepping into the the seats have the same of durability. A comfortable driving is easy to find and all-round is great.

Though the interior is very Daewoo has focused on the car’s above its list of standard (Rover should have notice when making the CityRover ). There may be no rev counter, or electric windows, but the column are actually nice to use, as is the of the switchgear. I don’t personally the shiny plastic on the dashboard, but it is of above average quality.

It is not for a car’s excellent first to evaporate after a couple of behind the wheel on the road. is not the case with the Matiz. A city car is not likely to leave two black lines of rubber as it the multi-storey car park (not the driver has forgotten to release the ). However, the 1.0-litre Matiz has spark. It reminded us of older Fiats, and indeed the current with its willingness. Don’t be to see the little Matiz darting the streets of Florence.

Though you will not be punished for the four-pot, it is rarely necessary; is a torquey unit, if not particularly at motorway speeds. Matched to the is a five-speed manual gearbox a gearchange that actually the driver to use the ‘box. The pedal is good, though my size-10 foot did not have room to on the left of the pedals.

I suspect the average Matiz buyer has feet.

The typical city car will appreciate the light steering in the Matiz. Its brakes are a rubbery, but they have not got a difficult job to stop the featherweight If you do a lot of motorway/dual carriageway driving, the will cope with crosswinds, but the engine roar tiresome above 70 mph.

Using the Matiz as it was intended few downsides. Indeed, we can’t see a reason for buying the 0.8-litre the claimed fuel consumption are within a few mpg of each other, and the CO 2 figure is lower for the 1.0-litre this will matter to fleet car buyers). The 1.0-litre is more refined than the 0.8 The difference in insurance costs, and the list price gap may sway but we would recommend the 1.0-litre. If you are you could still pick up a 1.0 which celebrates the 1st birthday of joining GM.

In both 0.8 and 1.0-litre forms, it the same as the base SE model, but with a list of extras.
