2009 Daewoo Nexia.jpg

Daewoo Nexia/Uz-Daewoo Nexia/Chevrolet Nexia. 1995–2015 (prod. n/a). 3-, 4- and 5-door sedan. F/F, 1498 cm³ (I4 OHC), 1498, 1998 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Sister car to Daewoo Cielo, but slightly more upscale. Nexia name was usually found on export models based around the Opel Kadett E, though between March 1995 and November 1996, was also sold in the Korean home market. Given how dated the technology was at this point, the cars could hardly be said to be that upscale, or even competitive, though standard equipment was generous on export models. Refined in a 1980s’ context, less so by the 2000s’. Korean production to end of 1996 only; Uzbek production of four-door sedan at Uz-Daewoo continued into the second decade of the 21st century, the company working alone after the collapse of Daewoo in Korea. A very popular car in Uzbekistan, and exported from there to Russia, where it also found good custom. (Fifty per cent of Uzbek output was destined for Russia.) By 2006, it was the third-best selling car in the Commonwealth of Independent States. British designers worked on a facelift for the car to keep it fresh so Uz-Daewoo could find a new partner after having been left stranded; the new car was shown in 2008. Replaced by Daewoo Gentra-based model in Uzbekistan in 2015.
