Chevrolet Tacuma cars are also known under the name Daewoo Tacuma or Rezzo. This is because Chevrolet Tacuma sales also occur in South Korea through GM Daewoo. The car has been around since 2000. It was based on a compact car called the Daewoo Nubira J100. After Daewoo was phased out, the car began to be sold under the Chevrolet name. Used Chevrolet Tacuma cars may be sold under either name, however, depending on where in the world the buyer is located.
The car first came out in 2000 under the Daewoo name. It was produced until 2008 with few modifications. Production of the vehicle still occurs in Uzbekistan, though it is assembled around the world, including in South Korea, Poland and Romania. It is a compact MPV with five doors. Among its many names at the Chevrolet Tacuma, the Chevrolet Rezzo, the Chevrolet Vivant and the Daewoo Rezzo. The Chevrolet Vivant was specific to the regions of South Africa and South America. Likewise, the Daewoo Rezzo was primarily sold in South Korea.
The Chevrolet Tacuma has either a 1.6 litre engine or 2.0 litre engine. The car comes with the option of either a 5 speed manual transmission or a 4 speed automatic transmission. In general, the standard version of the car can seat 5 people. However, a later model that was introduced in South Korea had the ability to seat 7 people. The car has enjoyed some popularity. In South Korea, where petrol is extremely expensive, the vehicle was modified to have a liquefied petroleum gas engine to help save money on gas. In addition, the car appeared in an episode of the popular car television show "Top Gear." It was designed by Pininfarina.
