Emerging as a new vehicle brand in the United States in 1999, Daewoo presented a line-up of three vehicles. The Leganza existed as a South Korean brands flagship in the North American marketplace. A mid-sized sedan, the Leganza was built to appeal to a mature driving crowd desiring comfort for an affordable price. The Daewoo Leganzas four-door sedan shape was sculpted by with the assistance of Italdesign (the same design company that was instrumental in the creation of the Lotus Esprits appearance and several Volkswagens of the 1970s).

Three trim levels were offered with the 1999 Leganza consisting of a SE, SX, and premium-equipped CDX model. All 1999 Daewoo Leganza models featured four-wheel disc brakes behind 15-inch wheels. Inside, a five-passenger cabin provided 60/40 split rear seats. Air conditioning, power windows, six-speaker Sony AM/FM stereo with CD player and dual front impact airbags were included standard on the 1999 Daewoo Leganza. On the top-trimmed CDX model, the sedan was fitted with automatic climate control, heated front seats and a power tilt and slide moonroof. North American models of the Leganza arrived with a 2.2-liter double overhead cam D-TEC four-cylinder engine.

The 1999 Daewoo Leganza was sufficiently propelled with 131 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque channeled through a four-speed automatic transmission. In 2001, buyers of the Leganza were provided with a low-cost option of a five-speed manual gearbox on the SE model. Along with the entire Daewoo line-up, the Leganza met its demise after the 2002 model year in North America following the purchase of the auto company by General Motors.
