Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 34 - 39 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The free servicing and breakdown cover helps to keep servicing costs reasonable. Insurance fuel and repair costs are nothing to be scared of either. Biggest cost will be the dreaded depreciation.

Lacetti performs reasonably on the eco front. With an average of 182 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are quite low for a small family hatchback. It’s worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not particularly economical, averaging 37 mpg.

The model has not been out long enough to say for sure, but we would expect reliability to be reasonably good. Other Daewoos have a reputation for being mechanically sound, but having flimsy interiors. Lacetti is large step forward.
