I rewrote this section, and hope that no inadvertent liberties were taken:
- Daewoo used the fifth generation Opel Kadett/second generation Vauxhall Astra platform as a basis for the Daewoo Nexia. Before the Nexia/Cielo was introduced in 1995, Daewoo sold in the Australasian market the Daewoo 1.5i, which was a second generation Opel Kadett/Vauxhall Astra with only slight changes. The Cielo was a facelift of this model.
I found this slightly confusing; although the Opel Kadett article calls the 'Kadett D' (1979-84) the "fourth generation", it is listed as the "mk 5". The Nexia is transparently based on the 1984-91 model (Kadett E), specified in the article as "Mk 6"(!).
I guess this is down to some informality in how the generations are defined, but I think it makes more sense to specify the design name and the years it was produced. (Certainly, Google images search seems to confirm that this refers to the correct version).
Also, I think we can safely assume that "second generation Opel Kadett/Vauxhall Astra" meant "second generation Vauxhall Astra", since the second generation Kadett (however you specify it) is a much older car. :-/

Production length ranking?
Vehicles based on the 1984 Opel Kadett E have been in production for 30 years. Where does that place them in the rankings of overall production length? If there's a large percentage of the body shell carried over from the 1979 Kadett that would give it a 35 year history. The VW Beetle lasted 65 years, 1938 to 2003, dating from the first one with the classic Bug shape. Bizzybody (talk) 22:18, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
