The Daewoo Cielo was manufactured in Korea between 1994 and 1997 and is still manufactured in the small country of Uzbekistan. Cielo was the first international car launched in India; therefore it has a strong following there. This four-door subcompact sedan meets European safety standards, and selling points include ease of driving, high mileage per gallon of gas and budget-minded pricing.
The Daewoo Cielo features a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder in-line engine. The Cielo is known for excellent fuel economy. Sequential fuel injection, dual spray injectors and a modern electric control system complete the engine. The Daewoo Cielo averages approximately 25 miles per gallon. Front suspension features struts with coil springs and an anti-roll bar. Rear suspension includes a torsion beam axle, shock absorbers and additional anti-roll bar. Steering is power-assisted rack and pinion, and the manual transmission features five gears, including reverse. Front disc brakes and rear drum brakes complete the braking system, which is not anti-lock. There are front and rear fog lamps.
A driver-side airbag is a standard feature of the Daewoo Cielo. Rotary climate control allows the driver to optimise cabin temperature, and audio features include the Daewoo Stereo Music System (four-speaker radio and cassette player). The GLX model comes with a single CD player in addition to the standard audio package. Tilt steering allows for maximum steering comfort, and seat belt warning charm bells alert the driver. Anti-submarine seats are basic and satisfactory, but rear legroom can be somewhat cramped depending upon driver and passenger seat positioning.
The Daewoo Cielo is equipped with locking power windows and child-safety locks. Three-stage bumpers provide crash resistance, and there are reinforced steel beams within each of the four doors to minimise damage caused by side-impact crashes. The collapsible steering wheel protects the driver from chest injuries during front-impact crashes. Front and rear deformation zones are designed to absorb the force from impact as well.
