Which used Chevrolet Lacetti estate should I buy?

You won't have a lot of choice when you're buying a Lacetti estate, as the range never included more than two models - and even that was eventually trimmed to just one.

The one constant through the car's life was the 1.6 SX. Still, that has everything you need, including air-con, alloy wheels and electric windows all round. Like all Lacettis, it comes with power steering, central locking and a CD player.

You might also track down the short-lived 1.8-litre model, which came only in Sport trim. However, apart from a few extra horsepower, a slightly quicker 0-60mph time, traction control and a sporting bodykit, there's not a lot to choose between it and the basic 1.6-litre car.

Of the two, we think the basic car is the better buy. It doesn't feel that much slower than the 1.8 on the road, and gives you everything that's good about a Lacetti estate for the least expense.

You'll find plenty of Lacettis in the Chevrolet dealer network and the small ads.
