Daewoo Kalos 1.5 Litre Manual

The Kalos is the first all-new car released under the GM Daewoo alliance and it replaces the Lanos, which was Daewoo’s previous small car entrant. The Kalos is available as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatch and it’s powered by a single camshaft 1.5 litre engine. There’s no three-door, as was offered in the Lanos model range, nor a 1.6 litre engine option as was featured in the Lanos Sport. The Kalos sedan and hatch are quite different in appearance and accordingly, their appeal will be to different buyers. Whereas the hatch presents a bold, Italianinspired design that should attract the younger generation, the sedan is much plainer and blander, and represents the practical choice for family buyers, or perhaps older empty nesters. Pricing is the same for both sedans and hatches, with the manual models costing $14,990. Automatic transmission costs an extra $2,000, while metallic paint finish will set you back another $195. Those prices include air conditioning, dual front airbags, power steering, a CD player, power windows, a tilt steering wheel, an engine immobiliser and a 60/40 split fold back seat rest.

Shopping down near the bottom of the new car market almost always means accepting a few compromises and that’s how it is with the Daewoo Kalos. Whilst the Kalos provides tangible improvements over the now superseded Daewoo Lanos, it lags behind the more expensive small car competition on some aspects. These include performance, smoothness, comfort and standard features. Nevertheless, the Kalos rates as a good value buy, with good interior and load space. So if you’re on a limited budget and your expectations for driving attributes and standard equipment aren’t too high, then a Kalos may well fill the bill. Download Daewoo Kalos 1.5 Litre Manual here
