Daewoo Matiz/Chevrolet Spark/Formosa Matiz/Chevrolet Le Chi (樂馳/乐驰)/Chevrolet Joy/Baojun Le Chi/Chevrolet Matiz (M100/M150). 1998–2018 (prod. n/a). 5-door sedan. F/F, 796 cm³ (I3 OHC), 995 cm³ (I4 OHC). Small car based on a Giugiaro design for the Fiat Cinquecento. Roomy but unrefined, and increasingly out of step against more modern competition. Engine and transmission carried over from predecessor. Upgrade to M150 in 2000, and replaced in Korea in 2005, though continued in China and renamed Le Chi in 2010. Continued in largely the same form as the original in Vietnam, and at Uz-Daewoo in Uzbekistan, and named Chevrolet Joy in Pakistan. Transferred from Chevrolet to Baojun marque in China in 2012. Uzbek model took Chevrolet marque in 2015, and survived to 2018.
