GM Daewoo Auto & Technology, the South Korean unit of General Motors (GM), has launched the 2009 models of the new Gentra sedan and Gentra X hatchback, which the automaker says are the most fuel-efficient vehicles in their segment.
According to GM Daewoo Auto & Technology, the additions to the Gentra family will feature a new 1.6 litre engine, whose fuel efficiency of 13.9km per litre with an automatic transmission - 16km with a manual transmission - tops its predecessor and competitors.
"With our new ECO-TEC engine along with the economical 1.2 DOHC engine introduced with the launch of the Gentra X last year, small car buyers have a greater choice than ever before," said GM Daewoo Vice President, Vehicle Sales, Service & Marketing Rick LaBelle.
The 2009 Gentra sedan (manual transmission) will be priced between 9.07 million Korean won (roughly $9,600) to 11.12 million won. The 2009 Gentra X hatchback is likely to cost between 8.57 million won and 10.96 million won.
