Daewoo Espero/Aranos 1990-1997

Daewoo Espero

The Daewoo Espero (also known as Aranos) is a mid-size car produced by the South Korean company Daewoo Motors from 1990 to 1997. It was technically based on the GM J platform and had the distinction of a body designed by Bertone. The car was equipped with the Daewoo Family 1 1.5 L engine, or the 1.8 or 2.0 L Family II engine from Holden. The Espero was replaced by the Daewoo Leganza in 1997.

The Espero was renamed to Aranos in some Spanish-speaking countries (not in Chile, for instance.), since the word Espero means I wait in Spanish. Such a name was deemed inadequate.

UK imports began in January 1995 when it was one of two cars (the other being the Nexia) in the first British Daewoo range. It sold well in the UK, but its competitive asking price, impressive equipment levels and the comprehensive aftersales package were about the only strengths the car had in comparison with other rivals. After all, it was little more than a re-hashed MK3 Vauxhall Cavalier. The Espero was launched just months before the MK3 Cavalier was discontinued and the Vectra introduced.

I think you are confusing them. The Espero/Aranos is supposed to be a D-segment car based on Ascona C mechanicals. Whereas the Nubira was more of a C-segment car designed to replace the Nexia, itself a version of the old Kadett E.

i was thinking it could be a preceding model of the car you post by the link on wiki.
but i think the right car in my mind is the Nexia...i'm pretty sure this car was sold here as the Nexia. i don't know, i'm quite confused now...all those pics of Modena are running in my head, i'm going crazy! but i can wait to post all the zondas pics...maybe tomorrow...

Ah, good ol' Espero. It was considered a luxury car in Romania. We had the Daewoo Cielo and I was always jealous of my cousin, who's dad had the Espero.

A dark green Espero, almost as exciting as a light blue BMW M5
