A South Korean carmaker, Daewoo Motors, manufactured the compact car Daewoo Nubira from 1997-2002.

The Nubira first generation was the model J100, which emerged in 1997 as hatchback, sedan and station wagon versions. This version used a 2.0 liter engine that had a different block for automatic or standard transmissions. This model lasted in production until 1999. The Nubira reemerged with an improved version in 2000 and was restored to the market as model J150. This revamped model included less road noise, enhanced passenger room, and less motor vibration. These improvements were largely from an additional engine mount and fine tuning of intake resonators.


In Europe, the Nubria took an alternate form – the Daewoo Lacetti or the model J200 sedan. This replacement was expanded to include a station wagon in 2005. Some auto dealers in Europe reserved the Nubira nameplate exclusively for station wagons and sedans.

The Nubira surfaced in North America in 1999. Before the J150 was available from 2000 to 2002, the J100 was introduced in the 1999 model year. Daewoo’s performance was weak in the U.S. market and these cars remained obscure in Canada and the U.S. Hence, The Suzuki Forenza substituted for the Nubira in the U.S. in 2004, with the Nubira exiting the U.S. market in 2002.

The Nubira was sold as a base model called the ‘SE’, or a premium version, known as the ‘CDX.’ These versions both carried a 4-speed auto and a manual transmission. Nubian’s sold in the U.S., Daewoo utilized a dual-overhead cam 16-valve 2-liter inline-4 GM ‘D-Tec’ gasoline engine coupled with a D20 5-speed manual transaxle or a GM 4T40E 4-speed automatic one.

Incidentally, the 2.0 liter engine was capable of  136 lb·ft (184 N·m) torque at 4,400 rpm. It came with a 3.4” stroke and bore, generating 129 bhp, 96kW, 131 PS. Meanwhile, in the international scene the Daewoo Nubiras had an option of1.8, 1.6 or 2 liter L4 gas engines with no choice in using diesel engines.

Rivaling the Nubira were models such as the Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Honda Civic, Toyota Echo, Mazda Protégé, and Chevy Prizm. Used Nubira engines for sale might be difficult to obtain since the car was never very popular.
