The Daewoo Tacuma (or Rezzo) is a compact MPV that was produced by South Korean manufacturer Daewoo. Developed under the U100 code name, it was designed by Pininfarina and is based on the original Daewoo Nubira J100, a compact car.

Following the phasing out of Daewoo as a brand in most export markets, the car was rebadged as a Chevrolet, retaining either model name depending on the market. Additionally, the Chevrolet Vivant nameplate was introduced for the South African and South American markets.

Engines[edit]

The Tacuma comes with 1.6 L Family 1 or 2.0 L Family II straight-4 engines. 1.8 L engine was offered until 2005. It is available with a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. Standard Tacumas have a seating capacity of five, but a seven-seater version was also introduced for the South Korean market. Maximum luggage capacity of the Tacuma is 1425 L.

In Korea, it is called Rezzo. It comes with 2.0 L Family II straight-4 engines and 2.0L E-TEC SOHC Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) engines. Most Rezzo's come fitted with an LPG powered engine because gasoline is very expensive in Korea.

Market[edit]

VIDAMCO of Vietnam once produced the Tacuma as the "Chevrolet Vivant" in complete knock-down kit (CKD). Production ceased in December 2011.[6]
