The Lacetti is keenly priced, so it'll be tempting to those who just want some cheap motoring. Perhaps the biggest selling point is Chevrolet's Five Year Promise, which includes five years' warranty, servicing, roadside assistance and MoT test cover. Careful, though, because the Lacetti doesn't hold its value very well, so it won't prove to be all that cheap in the long run. Insurance costs are reasonable, but fuel costs and company car tax bills won't be especially low.
Chevrolet LACETTI Estate quality & reliability
The Lacetti's budget nature is reflected in the quality of the cabin. The design is nothing to get excited about and the cheap-feeling materials make it a pretty dour place to spend time. We haven’t heard any reliability horror stories, but being an unfamiliar brand in the UK, Chevrolet's reliability record is a bit of an unknown quantity.
Chevrolet LACETTI Estate safety & security
Front and side airbags, anti-lock brakes and ISOFIX child-seat mounts are fitted as standard, but that's about it on the safety front. You can't even add curtain airbags or stability control as options. Security provision is poor, however: the Lacetti has etched windows, an immobilser and remote locking, but deadlocks and alarms are missing.
