The Daewoo Lacetti is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Daewoo since 2002. The first-generation Lacetti was available as a four-door sedan, a five-door hatchback or a five-door station wagon. The sedan and wagon were designed by Pininfarina, and the hatchback by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The hatchback, known as Daewoo Lacetti5 in South Korea, was introduced in 2004. The original Lacetti was also sold under the Daewoo Nubira name in Europe, whilst Chevrolet marketed the car under the Nubira and Lacetti nameplates in various countries.
In November 2008, the second-generation Lacetti was launched under the name Daewoo Lacetti Premiere, being a badge-engineered version of the Chevrolet Cruze—though co-developed by GM Daewoo and Chevrolet. It was produced under the Daewoo marque until the beginning of 2011, when the latter was discontinued, but it continues production under the Chevrolet and Holden brands.
The name Lacetti comes from the Latin language term "Lacertus" which means youthful, strong and energetic.
