The Optra Magnum is a combination of the Chevrolet SRV’s nose mated to square-shouldered Optra saloon making the car look familiar but quite different. This nose changing differs for that Indian market that is possible since both cars are essentially exactly the same Optra or Daewoo Nubira underneath the skin. The important thing looks sharper than previous Optras, because of the cat’s eye headlamps and tight-fitting bonnet and bumpers that are given inside the SRV. The grille has become more hours within the bonnet V while an outsized bowtie sits inside the center with plenty of chrome surrounding it. Also new could be a more aggressive but picky face. Inside the rear, the diesel appears being an regular Optra aside from the tacky-searching Magnum badge which appears like it’s been stuck on. The TCDi go for turn signs within the wing mirrors and new 15-inch alloys.
Chevrolet has beefed inside the Optra’s chassis to make certain that it’ll require additional weight within the diesel motor. The important thing MacPherson struts getting its continuously-mounted lower control arm remains beefed up. The independent rear suspension uses variable rate coil springs and was validated by Lotus within the United kingdom. For the diesel, the springs used are usually much much softer for nearly any comfortable ride and lots of work joined insulation the cabin inside the clatter within the diesel. Many of the Magnum’s fine-tuning was completed India which enhancements will most likely be gone to live in Optra diesels in areas all over the world.
Inside, the Magnum is again a mix of the SRV along with the regular Optra. The dashboard is SRV focusing on one circular vents, central console along with the same controls boss. The doorpads, however, vary from Optra. Clearly, you will find less sporty overtones. It’s carried out shades of beige, you will find strips of pretend wood, black leather and dull metal which can make it feel more luxurious.
