Daewoo has launched a special edition Matiz with ‘mini-limousine’ looks and a funky interior.

The Matiz Flirt comes in unique Granada black paint, with darkened windows, 13″ alloy wheels and a chrome exhaust tailpipe. The interior has black leather/grey alcantara trim, leather steering wheel and gear lever gaiter, and aluminium-effect console highlights and door handles. Fitted as standard, you’ll also find air conditioning, a single-slot CD player, front fog lights and ABS.

The engine, a 1.0-litre 64 PS petrol unit, is unchanged and accelerates from 0-62mph in 12.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 94mph.

The Matiz Flirt is in Daewoo showrooms now, available for £7,995 on the road, including Daewoo’s usual Peace-of-Mind package of 3-years/60,000 miles free servicing, warranty and AA Roadside Assistance.

The Matiz Flirt is also featuring in Chemistry, a live dating events programme. The events, called Daewoo Dates will be held throughout May in seven of the UK’s largest cities, where the Matiz Flirt will shuttle ticket holders around, act as a prop in a novel approach to speed dating and be used by hit squads who take to the streets in towns prior to the event.
