Daewoo Lanos Overview

The Daewoo Lanos is in the subcompact class and is manufactured by the South Korean car company: Daewoo Motors. It was originally brought into production in 1997 to replace the Daewoo Nexia and ceased production in 2002. It has since been replaced with the Daewoo Kalos. It was designed in hatchback and sedan, and was cheap to buy. It is also pretty good economically but has little room in the rear and slow acceleration.

Daewoo Lanos History

When Daewoo decided to end its work with General Motors, they decided to bring in a range of new cars. They wanted to replace the Nexia with a new family car, which was to become Daewoo Lanos. They wanted to produce something that could compete the small family car class. This car is built on the GM T platform and is marketed under many different names across the world, including: FSO Lanos (Poland), Daewoo Sens (Ukraine) and Chevrolet Lanos (Egypt). In 2000 this car had a bit of a makeover, revising the suspension which was aiming to resolve the steering and handling issues from the first version. There were also some alterations to the interior and exterior which were minor changes. In 2002 it had another slight makeover with new taillights, bumper and front grille. By the end of 2002 it was no longer in production.

Fuel Economy

The available engines for this car are: 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 and there are both petrol and diesel engines available across the range of different engines. There are three main things that need to be taken into consideration when thinking economy: engine size, age and fuel type. Due to the average size of the Lanos engines, it is quite good economically.


There are 5 speed automatic and 4 speed manual gearboxes available across the range. There is a Daewoo gearbox section at the Breakeryard website if you need to locate your Daewoo gearbox parts.
