Gentra Daewoo: owner feedback

Surely everybody knows a manufacturer like UZ-Dao. Under this brand are produced such cars as Matiz and Nexia. The latter on the Russian market is a kind of folk car. But in view of the fact that the car is produced for 20 years, UZ-Dao decided to develop a new model of a budget car. They became Gentra Daewoo. Reviews, specifications, prices and bundled accessories, see our today's article.


Some confuse this car with a new generation of "Nexia". However, it is not. The reviews say that the Chevrolet Lacetti was taken as the basis for Gentry. This can be seen and in appearance. As the "Daewoo Gentra" looks, the reader can see in the photo below. Externally, the car almost does not differ from the first generation of "Lachetti" - the same slanting lights, bulging arches and simple body lines. The only difference between the new Uzbek "Gentra" from the soplatformnik, so this is a new bumper with other fog lamps and grille.

Design "Lacetti" was created in the Italian bureau "Pininfarina". The Uzbeks decided not to experiment and left their appearance without significant changes. However, if the first generation of "Chevrolet Lacetti" was published in 2002, then "Gentra" is already in 2013. And produced in this format so far. During this time, the design is very outdated. However, thanks to the Italians, the exterior does not look disgusting and dull even in our time.


As for the size of the Gentra Daewoo, the reviews say that the car is moderately compact.
The length of the "Gentry" is 4.5 meters, width - 1.73 meters, height - 1.45 meters. Dimensions are comparable with the "Lacetti" in the body sedan. Recall that the "Gentra" is made only in one version - a four-door sedan. Soplatformennik same issued in the body wagon and hatchback. What is the ground clearance for the Daewoo Gentra? The owners' comments say that, despite the 14-centimeter ground clearance, the car confidently "digests" the road irregularities, without catching rapids and bumpers on the asphalt or primer. The reserve of clearance is enough to go to the country or to rest in the forest.


Let's move inside the car of Gentra Daewoo. The owners' comments say that the salon is assembled at a level, with observance of all gaps. Fabric and plastic are of high quality. However, there is one drawback in the showroom of Daewoo Gentra. Reviews of owners often scold the interior decoration, which is made under a tree. Thus, the manufacturer brought the buyer closer to the 90s, when the tree in the cabin was considered a sign of luxury and presentability. In 2017, this decoration does not look at all, they note the reviews. And it is everywhere: on the door maps, under the instrument panel (which, it seems, is taken from the "second generation Nexia"), above the glove compartment ... At the same time, the manufacturer did not include a leather interior in the equipment. The seats are even in the maximum configuration rag. And this, along with a "luxurious" wooden decoration. On the center console - black and white radio tape recorder. The reviews say that it does not support USB, and this is a significant drawback. Along with the negative salon "Gentry" and causes positive emotions. So, there is not a lack of free space here. The driver's seat has the adjustment of not only the backrest, but also the lumbar support. The rear sofa has a fold-out armrest with two cupholders. And it is already available in the base of the Daewoo Gentra II. The owners' comments also point out the availability of a compact hatch for skis, which allows transportation of large-sized items. The luggage compartment at "Gentra" is designed for 405 liters. This ends all the advantages.

Technical specs Gentra Daewoo

The owners' comments indicate that there is no choice of power plants. And if for Lacetti engines were available in the volume from 1.4 to 1.8 liters, then "Gentra" is equipped with a single one-and-a-half-liter unit for 107 horsepower. The engine has a 16-valve timing mechanism and is transverse to the body. The maximum torque of the 107-hp unit is 141 Nm. And it is available only at the "top", which is a drawback.

Transmission, dynamics, consumption

Surprisingly, the manufacturer left the choice behind the gearbox. "Gentra" can be manned by one of the two proposed checkpoints. This is a five-speed mechanics and a six-speed automatic. The latter was borrowed from Chevrolet Cobalt. By the way, "Daewoo Gentra" is one of the few cars of the budget class, which already in the basic configuration can be equipped with automatic transmission. Of course, for this you need to pay a little. But about the prices - a little later. Let us consider the dynamic characteristics. Overclocking to a hundred from the car "Daewoo Gentra" takes 11.5 seconds. However, the owners' reviews say that the real figure is at least 12. The maximum speed is 180 kilometers per hour. There is one feature of the version of Daewoo Gentra II 1.5 AT. The owners' comments say that the box can be switched to manual mode. The transmission has a quick response to the accelerator pedal. How much fuel does the Daewoo Gentra machine use? Reviews say that the 1.5-liter engine with automatic transmission consumes about 10 liters of fuel in city mode. The passport provides for 95th gasoline. But, judging by the reviews, the engine easily "digests" and the 92nd.

Prices and complete sets

The initial cost of the car in the "Comfort" package is 549 thousand rubles. Reviews say that the machine in basic performance has a good level of equipment. So, the version of "Comfort" includes the presence of fog lamps, stamped wheels with hoods, immobilizer, heated front seats, front airbags and 4 window lifts on the electric drive. However, in the "base" there is no air conditioning, ABS system and radio tape recorder. There is only an audio preparation for six speakers. The version of "Comfort" with an automatic box will cost 619 thousand rubles. As for the maximum configuration of "Elegant", it is available at a price of 659 thousand rubles. This price includes 15-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, a full radio, air conditioning, ABS, a second airbag, central locking, power steering, heated rear window and side mirrors. The cost of picking "Elegant" with automatic transmission is 729 thousand rubles.


So, we found out what "Daewoo Gentra" has reviews, specifications and cost. At a price this car can compete with such cars as Lada Vesta, Renault Logan and Volkswagen Polo. "Gentra" is equipped with a proven motor and a box. In terms of service it is quite a cheap machine. However, whether it is worth overpaying for an obsolete design and openly budgetary salon remains a question. In the secondary market there are a lot of alternative options. Probably, that's why "Gentra" is not so widespread in the domestic market. After all, first of all, a modern buyer pays attention to design.
