It’s not the last word in quality, but the interior is stylish for a budget car, with blue-ringed dials and circular air vents. The simple layout and large buttons make it easy to use – the stereo is rather fiddly, however. The driving position is good, although neither the steering wheel nor driver’s seat can be adjusted for height.
Daewoo Matiz Hatchback space & practicality
The front occupants get good space, and headroom is no problem, even for taller drivers. However, the rear seat is not so accommodating for adults, who find their heads brushing the roof and their knees up against the front seat backs. The small boot can be expanded via a split and fold rear bench.
Daewoo Matiz Hatchback equipment
The smaller engine is only available in SE trim which has power steering as standard but little else. The only options are central locking, metallic paint, a CD player and sunroof and all will cost extra. Xtra trim brings central locking, a CD player and anti-lock brakes. SE+ trim adds alloy wheels, air-conditioning and front electric windows.
