General Motors bought Daewoo in the early 2000s effectively stopping the distribution of the brand in the US. General Motors also had a controlling interest in Suzuki at the time and Suzuki needed more product to compete in the US. The Korean built Daewoo Lacetti became Suzuki Forenza parts. The attractive small sedan and station wagon came with a 2.0 liter four cylinder and high level of equipment. Its main competition came from vehicles like the Nissan Sentra, Honda Civic, and Toyota Corolla. The General Motors bankruptcy essentially meant that the alliance and part sharing between GM and Suzuki came to an end. It was replaced by the proper Suzuki-built SX4 sedan.
