Chevrolet Lacetti (2008 Apr)
Review
Relevance / rating:
“It’s a Lacetti Sport is it?” People always smirk slightly when they see the word ‘sport’ on the side of the Lacetti and I’m not really sure why. The styling of the car is not unsporting, nor is it unattractive. I... Chevrolet Lacetti

Proton GEN-2 GLS (2004 Oct)

Proton well-equipped but slow (2011 Oct)
Review
