Maybe additional "cubes" and "horses" will benefit him? There are enough questions to arrange a Matiz with a four-cylinder 1.0 liter engine a full test. Is not it?

IN NEW PACKAGING

In Russia, such machines appeared in early spring - at the same time as the model on which the already well-known 0.8-liter three-cylinder engine was paired with an “automatic machine” (ЗР, 2005, No. 3). Alas, the liter unit under the hood of a little car gets along only with a manual gearbox - there is not enough space for an automatic transmission. The main pair in the "five-step" remained the same, but the gear ratios of all stages (including the rear) were adjusted to a new engine - the right approach, an example for many.

The manufacturer dubbed the powerful "Matiz" the best - this is ambitiously declared by the inscription Best on the sides. By equipping liter cars are really good … against the backdrop of their own poor relatives. Four power windows, fabric upholstery on the doors, power mirrors. Yes, only the right one, and the driver has to be adjusted manually. The savings did not affect the considerable price … In addition, the Matisik interior is slightly wider than the shoulders - some people manage to manually adjust the right mirror, without even having to unfasten the belt! By the way, all the internal dimensions and seat adjustment ranges of the liter “Uzbek” are the same as those of versions with a 0.8 liter engine (ЗР, 2003, No. 2).

It is a pity that even the "best" did not receive airbags. Despite the decent results in crash tests (ЗР, 2004, No. 11), additional protection for Matiz passengers would not be in the way. In Europe, airbags even equip cars in poor configurations.

The main thing, of course, is hidden under the hood - a four-cylinder engine with an electronic injection and ignition control system. Additional touches to the portrait - two valves per cylinder, timing gear drive with a timing belt, crankshaft on five bearings. For the sake of ecology, all 1 liter engines are equipped with a catalytic converter. Energy for start-up is accumulated by a larger battery - 45 A.h. The torque, grown by 18 N.m, demanded to increase the diameter of the clutch.

In operation, the liter engine is not much more wasteful than its counterpart with a working volume of 0.8 liters. For a hundred, he pulls out of the gas tank an average of half a liter of gasoline, although at high speeds the efficiency of the low-power unit disappears. The frequency and cost of maintenance of all the "Matiz" also do not differ, except that when changing a new engine oil requires half a liter more.

LITER POWER

You feel the difference compared to the three cylinders as soon as the ignition key is turned. The four-cylinder engine is quieter, you are not disturbed by the vibrations characteristic of the unit with three "pots". The kid has adult habits. Well, let's go - show what you can do.

Spinning between the cars in the dealership parking lot, he gave the engine first ratings - positive. Where the three-cylinder demanded to "play" with the pedals, the liter steadily carries at minimum speed. Still to lengthen the clutch pedal stroke … However, to stall is already quite difficult - the high-torque engine forgives inaccuracies.

In all dynamic parameters, the novice is ahead of a weak relative (see ZR measurements - for reference, we supplemented the table with the results of previous machine measurements of 0.8 l). According to the dynamics, the Matiz with a liter engine is close to the domestic Samara - less than 16 seconds to hundreds and a maximum of about 150 km / h. We were unlucky with the weather, the rain poured heavily on the landfill. Acceleration to 100 km / h "suffered" slightly, but the maximum speed on dry could be slightly higher.

To stay in a dense metropolitan stream, a three-cylinder engine often has to be twisted to high revs. Liter "Matiz" in similar situations does not raise his voice in vain. According to rumors (tachometer, alas, no), you switch gears in the range of 2-3 thousand revolutions. Nice motor, but it's also about well-selected gear ratios. On a suburban highway, of course, I want more power. However, the mind tells us that for such a machine this is the limit - then you need to improve the brakes, which will not hurt the additional tenacity.

On a long trip, not every body will painlessly endure a shaky suspension and an uncomfortable chair. This is also why the element of Matiz, even with a liter engine, remains a city with decent roads and short trips.

The new engine pacified the slightly nervous character of the Matiz, but it was not at all against being twisted to a limiter. There will be no screech: the sound not only changed the tone, but also became quieter. In general, at speeds over a hundred in the cabin, you can talk in an undertone or listen to soft music.

“Bams!” - this was the voice protection of the engine, met with uneven coverage. To the metal sheet covering the bottom of the crankcase, a little more than 130 mm. It is tolerable, given the short front overhang - tram tracks and low "speed bumps" you can not be afraid. By the way, the protection of the engine is not established by the factory, but by the seller.

20% NOT FREE

Of course, additional "cubes" are not given in vain. The most affordable Matiz with a liter engine at the time of preparing the material cost 8700 dollars. Not at all cheap for an avtomobilchik with a reputation for being inexpensive. True, with him - power steering, radio, electric windows, central locking. Add here air conditioning and alloy wheels - you get more than 9.5 thousand dollars. The same cost is the compatriot Nexia in a similar configuration …

Who, then, will buy such a Matiz? Someone who needs a small, convenient, economical, inexpensive to maintain, but at the same time comfortable and nimble car. And for this he is ready to pay a tidy, but reasonable amount. And yet - many "Matiz" just like. Isn't that a reason?

Daewoo matiz

A car with a 0.8-liter engine debuted in 1998 at the Geneva Motor Show. In 2000, the appearance was refreshed, and a couple of years later a version with a 1-liter engine appeared.

Engines: gasoline 0.8–1.0 liters (51–64 hp).

Transmissions: 5-speed manual, 4-speed “automatic” and CVT. They are not delivered to Russia with the latter.

Options: STD, DLX.

Price: $ 6400–9600.

Test car: 1.0 liter, 64 hp, manual 5-speed gearbox, DLX equipment, $ 9300 (with additional equipment $ 10, 200).

SUMMARY

Daewoo Matiz 1.0 - the new motor gives an extra reason to love Matiz. True, this love will require sacrifice … financial.

+ Decent dynamic characteristics, rich equipment already in the basic configuration, good looks, good visibility.
