1997 Daewoo Leganza.jpg

Daewoo Leganza (V100). 1997–2002 (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 1761, 1796, 1998 cm³ (I4 OHC), 1799, 1998, 2198 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Replacement for Opel Rekord E1-based Royale derivatives, even donning a V-letter development code inherited from GM. ItalDesign styling based on a concept for Jaguar, scaled down accordingly. Despite lofty ambitions, really a well equipped (heated power mirrors among the features on some models) all-rounder that did nothing remarkable. Good ride but performance lacking, even among larger four-cylinder units. The two-litre OHC engine, usually the base one in export markets, noisy; 2·2 quieter.

Manufacturing locations: Bupyeong, Korea; Zaporizhia, Ukraine; Warszawa, Poland; Craiova, Romania
