The base model's price is attractive, but the higher-trim carries a significant premium, and resale values of Chevrolets are traditionally poor. Fuel economy figures are adequate but carbon dioxide emissions are dire, especially on the automatic version of the diesel. This will put off company car drivers.
Chevrolet EPICA Saloon quality & reliability
There's nothing wrong with the way the Epica has been put together, but it looks dated and feels cheap. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the centre console's display, which is presented by green LEDs. Chevrolet's performance in the JD Power Reliability Survey is traditionally poor.
Chevrolet EPICA Saloon safety & security
All Epicas come with front, side and curtain airbags and a front seatbelt pre-tensioning system. Warning lights to tell you to put on your seatbelt are hard to see, because they're mounted on the passenger side. The rear seats have ISOFIX child seat mountings. However, you have to step up to the LT trim level to get stability control.
