Daewoo Imperial. 1989–93 (prod. 863). 4-door sedan. F/R, 2969 cm³ (I6 OHC). Poshest vehicle on the GM V-car (Opel Rekord E) platform, Imperial was the most upscale development of the series at Daewoo. Conceived as a response to the Hyundai Sonata and Grandeur, with styling apeing top Chryslers (notably the last Imperial and the New Yorker) and Japanese luxury sedans. Formal roofline, and new front and rear ends, hid the Opel Senator A1 roots. Vinyl roof available, covering the back part. Double-D ornament on grille. Engine size meant to surpass what Hyundai had put in to the Sonata—the unit was shared with the Senator, and developed 156 hp.
