Daewoo Lacetti Engine

The Daewoo Lacetti (It’s pronounced “Laacheyti”) is a compact car made by the South Korean automaker GM Daewoo since 2002. The first-generation Lacetti was available as a four-door sedan, a five-door hatchback or a five-door station wagon. The sedan and wagon were designed by Pininfarina, and the hatchback by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The hatchback, known as Lacetti5 in South Korea, was introduced in summer 2004.

In November 2008 the second-generation Lacetti was launched under the name Lacetti Premiere, being a badge-engineered version of the Chevrolet Cruze – though co-developed by GM Daewoo and Chevrolet.

In Europe the 1st generation Lacetti from 2002 to 2008 was initially sold as Daewoo Lacetti, but by the end of the 2004 it was rebadged as a Chevrolet. As with its home market, in some European markets, the Lacetti name is also used for the entire range of sedan, station wagon and hatchback models on the same J-series platform. In Finland and Germany, for example, only the hatchback is sold under the Lacetti name.

The European models are available with the following 3 petrol powered 4 cylinder engines

1.4 L E-TEC II – 93 hp (69 kW) at 6300 rpm
1.6 L E-TEC II – 108 hp (80 kW) at 5800 rpm

– 1.6L DOHC engine hatch (5-Door) 108 bhp (81 kW) 0-100 km/h: 10.6 sec., top speed: 184 km/h (114 mph) MT

The engines were built for the Nubira and its badge engineered twins are the same as in Lacetti hatchback and its badge engineered versions. The 1.8L four cylinder is sourced from the Australian car maker, Holden and is identical to the engine used in the 2004 Astra. It is commonly known as the “Family 2 unit”. All of them are petrol powered 4 cylinder engines.

Daewoo Lacetti 2004 model

Slightly bigger than a Polo and slightly smaller than a Focus, Lacettis start with a 1.4 rise through a better equipped 1.6 or 1.6 automatic, and will culminate with a sporty 1.8 in summer 2004. Engines are familiar GM Family 1 and Family II, as in some of the Vauxhall range. Nothing too complicated or ambitious. The 1.6 is a bit gruff but reasonably torquey with a well chosen final drive ratio that allows you to stay in 5th more than some other 1.6s. And for the sort of money that buys you a run-out special Ford Focus 1.6 Flight 3 door.

The 1.4 is a sweeter engine, nicer to rev, but lacking the grunt of the 1.6 which means you have to use the gears a lot more. It’s no slouch, though. And the handling is just as good as the 1.6. But you don’t get aircon or alloys or electric rear windows, so really for £1,000 more the 1.6 is better value.

Prices for the Lacetti open at £5,000 for a 1.4 litre SE on an 03 plate with the more powerful and better equipped 1.6 litre SX variant kicking off at £5,500. Insurance for both models is eminently reasonable at Groups 5 and 7 respectively. The 1.4 and 1.6-litre engines with which Daewoo went to battle in this segment have an Achilles heel. They all drink petrol from the green pump.

Those statistics quoted take into account diesel cars too which represent a growing proportion of UK new car registrations and without a diesel to campaign with, the Lacetti found itself at a comparative competitive disadvantage. Still, early Lacetti 1.4 or 1.6 litre engine owners didnt have too much to grumble about.

Both units have twin overhead camshafts driven by a toothed belt with four-valve technology. The entry level power train in the Lacetti 1.4 generates 92 bhp and will accelerate the car through 60mph in 11.3 sec and on to a top speed of 107 mph.

Overall fuel consumption is a very creditable 39.2mpg. Next up is the 109bhp 1.6-litre unit. This manages a top end of 116.2 mph and dispatches the benchmark sprint in a sprightly 10.4 sec, with an even better fuel economy figure than the 1.4 (39.7mpg combined), the Lacetti 1.6 has a range of over 520 miles from the 13 gallon tank. The 122bhp 1.8 litre engine provides some entertainment and can notch off the dash to 60mph in 9.3 seconds and will only run out of puff at a heady 121mph. Despite these eyebrow-raising performance statistics, its average fuel consumption is just 37.6mpg.
