In this review I will explain what I do and don't like about the Chevrolet Matiz 1.0 SE, as a newly qualified driver (I passed the practical driving test in October 2006) and will put in as much detail as I can. Now to start with, it was under sad circumstances that I got this car, for my first...

I took ownership of my chevvy matiz after my daewoo matiz was passed to my eldest daughter, and i have to say i was most impressed with the new version of 'betsy' the matiz! The old model had a chunky but comfortable feel, the new chevvy is sleek and quite beautiful! Driving the chevvy is very...

We purchased a second hand Chevrolet Matiz, an 06 plate, locally as a second car in the family. We had never owned small cars. The Focus was the smallest we have ever had in our household, where we mostly had large estates or saloons like the Ford Sierra. This was an entirely new experience, and...

I bought my little Chevrolet Matiz (Toby) this year after my old car started making some not so great sounds. Previously I had got a top of the range Ford Ka which was the limited edition millenium model but it was time for a change. I looked at a lot of small cars to find the one that was best...

ConsThe boot space could be bigger

I am a BIG chap, and the best thing about the Matiz is the look on peoples faces when this tiny car arrives and an obese bearded golfer emerges. You would expect me to be uncomfy in this car - but no, it is great. The entire product is good, it has isofix in the rear seats for the Grandchildren...

Good

ProValue for money, great city car

ConsUnrefined, lack of performance.

The Matiz is a great car for those on a budget who don’t mind sacrificing practicality and potentially image. Its ideal for city driving and small commutes. I have experience of driving a lot of these little things when working for a car rental company. The 1 litre engine returns great fuel...

Question

published 01/03/2014

How easy is it to fit a air con pump to a Matiz.
Open question Answer

Not for me

published 21/02/2008

I have had the unpleasant experience of having my Ford Fiesta bumped from behind by an idiot who wasn't looking. What has made my experience even more unpleasant is having this vehicle as a courtesy car! Worst car I have ever driven. Gear-box feels like it's been glued together and the clutch is horrendous. The stupidity of putting the speedo and rev counter in the middle is off the scale! It is so off putting. Please, please please can I have my Fiesta back soon. I am driving the ugliest thing ever created and chevvy have ruined themselves by slapping their badge on it! Do not be fooled into buying one of these!
