Pros & cons


Decent budget hatchback, good equipment levels


Lack of image, no diesel option, bland and cheap feeling interior

Written by David Ross Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


The exotic sounding Lacetti looks fairly attractive – that’s mainly due to the input of the famous styling house Italdesign. It’s a budget-priced medium-sized hatchback that’s main attraction is generous equipment levels and low prices. But it’s dull to drive – albeit comfortable on the motorway – and lacks the refinement of similarly priced alternatives like the Kia Ceed.

The engines aren’t particularly good, either in terms of performance or economy, while the interior looks dated and feels cheap.
