The Daewoo d’Arts: the early Matiz

Vehicle Overview

The Daewoo d’Arts, later known as the Daewoo Matiz, originated from the Fiat Cinquecento ID by Italdesign in 1992. Fiat invited Italian coachbuilders to reinterpret the iconic Cinquecento theme, leading to the creation of the ID Cinquecento. In 1993, it evolved into the Lucciola prototype, emphasizing electric hybrid technology and eco-friendliness. While Fiat opted for the Seicento, Daewoo’s president, Kim Woo-choong, saw potential in the Lucciola. Daewoo, under the design of Fabrizio Giugiaro, transformed it into the “d’Arts,” retaining key features and enhancing handling. In 1997, the d’Arts became the Daewoo Matiz. The Matiz, part of the M Series, marked Daewoo’s first-generation microcar. Launched in 1997, it retained the essence of the 1992 concept but featured a more practical 5-door body. Despite its compact size, the Matiz accommodated five passengers, becoming a popular mini minivan in Europe. The Sport version, with a 71-horsepower engine, aimed to compete in the sporty mini car segment. The Daewoo Matiz’s success lay in its distinctive rounded design, oval headlights, and internal flexibility. The car showcased adaptability and practicality, making it a standout choice in the mini car market.
