Chevrolet Matiz Review
Even if speed and luxury aren’t the main adjectives able to describe the Chevrolet Matiz, this car has still in store some pleasant surprises that might make you change your mind. Its inspiration is the old Matiz, a popular mini-car driven all around the world.
If we were to consider a Chevrolet Matiz review we should first of all mention that at first sight it looks like a cute five-door hatch car, quite small, but in a crowded city that might become an advantage. But, in reality is comfortable and spacious enough for four adults of regular size, offering them enough room to stretch. There are people under the impression that the car has just three doors, so they try accessing the back seats using the front doors. No worries there! All the four doors are perfectly functional and can be widely opened.
The interior has a minimalist elegance because of the dark upholstery, while the seats even if insubstantial at first sight are quite comfortable and supportive. There are three colors available for the seat-covers, but all come with a dark grey base color. In order to match the funny exterior look with an interior as cute, the instrument colors can be matched. Moreover, the exterior body color (ten possibilities are available) influences the inside available colors. The driver has the possibility to adjust his seat’s height although the driving wheel lacks this possibility.
This cute Chevrolet Matiz is actually a budget car, so the manufacturer tried to offer the best quality possible at a decent price. That resulted in a clean cabin with a symmetrical centered console that puts to good use a Blaupunkt RDS radio/CD player along with at least two speakers. There isn’t a satellite navigation system available, so you will have to go with the old-fashioned methods.
The Chevrolet Mariz review must also specify the available trim levels: S and SE, while pricing goes from £6,145 to £7,145. The standard features that you will get for the S version include power-assisted steering, tinted glass and steel wheels with a diameter of 12 inches. The SE version adds some features to that standard list: central locking, electric windows in the front, two extra speakers and some other details related to design and space economy. Some extra money will provide you with a metallic paint available only for the 1.0 SE version (for £325) or air-conditioning with pollen filter (for £400).
The engines available are a 0.8 liter 3-cylinder or a 1.0 liter 4-cylinder engine. With a 4-speed automatic transmission (that isn’t included in the standard package) the Chevrolet Matiz is able to go from zero to 62 mph in 21.9 seconds, while the top speed is of only 84mph. But that is enough for a town car. In addition, the reduced proportions, and some driving skills will be enough for a successful parking even in the most crowded parking lot.
If you’re worried about luggage space necessary for a shopping day, you will be happy to know that the there are 170 liters of space available for your bags. Moreover, this space can be extended to 845 liters by folding the rear seats. How’s that for good news? And even if the space is not that generous the designers haven’t forgotten the oddment trays, the pockets or the cup-holders that just make the cabin seem more friendly and functional.
Next on the list is safety and the Chevrolet Matiz is serious about it. ISOFIX anchors equip the rear seats, while the front airbags and the ABS with EBD contribute as well for a safe ride.
