Part of a three-vehicle line-up as part of a United States entrance for South Korean company Daewoo in 1999, the Nubira was positioned in the center between the subcompact Lanos and the Leganza mid-size sedan. A compact car positioned for young families, the 1999 Nubira was delivered to the United States as a four-door sedan, wagon and a five-door hatchback body style. Engine power for the Nubira came in the form of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder D-TEC engine.

Generating 129 horsepower and 136 pound-feet of torque, the compact-sized Daewoo model offered a standard five-speed manual gearbox or an optional four-speed automatic. When equipped with a five-speed manual, the 1999 Nubira sedan achieved fuel economy of 20 miles per gallon city and 28 miles per gallon highway. Six-speaker audio system, power windows, tilt steering column and 14-inch wheels are included standard on the base model. The top-trimmed Daewoo Nubira CDX model featured alloy wheels, cruise control and four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock braking system. The five-door hatchback version of the Daewoo Nubira lasted only for one year leaving the sedan and wagon for 2000. Providing maximum cargo handling abilities, the Nubira Wagon offered 19 cubic feet of cargo room when the rear seat is up or 65 cubic feet when folded down.

Early distribution of the Daewoo Nubira was handled through a limited number of dealerships and an unusual arrangement where college students were offered to sell the Daewoo line-up for a commission. When General Motors purchased the Korean auto company, Daewoos presence in the United States concluded after the 2002 model year.
