Assuming it comes to the US and does so in the same manner as other GM-Daewoo products, I would expect it to be re-badged a Suzuki in the US. If anyone has any more info, please post.<BR><BR>

So, I suppose this will be the next Chevrolet Epica/Suzuki Verona?

Supposedly, Suzuki actually had some involvement in the development of this car. The base engine is rumored to be the new 170HP ECOTEC VVT. The higher engine is the 3.6L GM HFV6 with a 5-speed automatic powering the front wheels. Expect power to be around 250HP.

Not a bad looker, IMO. I wouldn't mind seeing this as a Suzuki here. This and the New Vitara may do a lot to improve Suzuki's image. I personally like them both.

Wonder if this reflects the new "world look" Chevrolet is supposedly going to adopt that is going to be shown in Frankfurt?

I really like this. It looks really good, to bad its not the Impala or some other bland chevy we get here

Looks very much like disguised Toyota Avalon. But if this is a Chevy, it should be a nice Malibu replacement.

is that based on the elipson (prob got that spelling wrong) or is it a re-body of the existing mechanicals?<br>looks good So far.nice clean design

This forum and the Daewoo Magnus forum should just be one since thats what this is.... <p>This is really nice. GM Daewoo continues to do unexpected work on GMs platforms...(ie the extra nice Chevy S3X concept-Theta) yes this is based on the Epsilon. It was engineeredand designed by GM's Daewoo (yes they are still around, GM owns them-GM DAT) and reportedly Suzuki. And will be made in Korea with rumours of some being made in Japan too. <p>Don't expect this in the US market as a Chevy because Suzuki also bought a part of Daewoo along with GM and the agreement is no models will be shared in the US between the 2. So it will be sold as the next Suzuki Verona, but this model will be sold in markets such as Canada that sell the Daewoo Magnus as the Chevy Epica/Evanda though... Also, this would never be sold in the US as a Chevy because the US engineers wouldn't be too fond of it. Thats like saying our home base engineers can't make a proper family sedan (Malibu)for their own country, that would be a smack in the face to their engineers.<p>Engines aren't set in stone but Suzuki bought the rights to GMs VVT V6s (2.8 210hp, 3.6 250hp)... I actually hope Suzuki does the 4cyl because I think they could make a better 4cyl. I know the GM 2.4 Ecotec 170hp 4cyl w/VVT sounds good but that engine has been delayed for some reason(Pontiac G6, Chevy Cobalt) and most 4cyl GM engines don't feel as powerful as they claim to be...<br>Most the Chevys sold in Europe are rebadged Daewoos now and I don't see that trend changing... It seems to work. I believe the Daewoo Nubira is sold in China as a Buick too.

Why do we have two thread's on the same car??<p>Just because it has a different name, does that mean it also get's it's own thread??

04-15-2005, 05:21 AM
Well, why not?<p>Geez this car looks nice (from the renderings) i really love the headlights and tail lights, and that strike along stide the car looks great!

Slightly different image than that of chevrolet isn't it? Can someone shed some light on this?

04-15-2005, 10:47 AM
lol.... yeah in GMs eyes a grill changes the whole package... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/all_coholic.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I'm not sure how Chevy markets this car since they don't/won't sell this in the US. How do they market the Epica in Canada?... Also, does anyone know where this Evanda name came from and where it will be sold as the Evanda..? <p>Just noticed the prototype in the spypics has a different grill... must be a Daewoo or Suzuki badged version.<p>I think if Suzuki markets this right it could be next years family sedan suprise in NA like the New Sonata is... This car certainly looks good and Suzuki have low prices and a good warranty too.

the name reminds me of holyfield, everytime <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/laugh2.gif" BORDER="0">

I read somewhere that the Suzuki Verona replacement would be developed by Suzuki, but that was few months ago.

04-15-2005, 06:51 PM
I thought it was a Daewoo?

04-16-2005, 06:09 AM
Looks a bit like the current Holden Commodore - Zeta Architecture engineers for GM - at the front, but the rear is a bit like an Avalon -US- Nice looker though... Could it be the new commodore??????? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/sheep.gif" BORDER="0">

04-16-2005, 11:23 AM
Suzuki had input. They partially own GM DAT so most new Daewoo models that they will sell under the Suzuki brand will receive Suzuki input...<p>BentleyBoy, this isn't the Commodore. This FWD(Epsilon based) and I'm not sure if you know but the Zeta platform is cancelled, for GM atleast. <BR><BR>

Canada would get these as well. I'm partial on the looks myself - they're going to make all the Daewoo/Chev models look the same. Meaning they'll all look like Malibus in front and Opels in behind.
