In parallel, in America, 190 crash tests were conducted. The name of the car comes from the Latin "Lacertus", denoting the concept of energy, power, strength and youth. It is noteworthy that in the Korean market the model is sold under the name Lacetti, but in Europe it bears the well-known name Nubira, in the USA it is known under the Suzuki Forenza brand, in Thailand and India - Chevrolet Optra. Lacetti looks modern, besides it has 100% recognizability - the characteristic grille has already become a family feature of Daewoo cars.

The driverโ€™s seat is optimal: the seats are comfortable, the controls are in place. The salon is cozy. Pleasant at the sight and touch plastic finish organically combined with a soft velor of the seats. All scales are perfectly readable and do not overlap with a rudder having a tilt adjustment. The instrument cluster is simple, but pleasing to the eye, and the visor eliminates glare in daylight.
