Daewoo Leganza Models and Leganza History
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.
