To say that the Filipino car buyer is spoiled for choice is a huge understatement these days. There is practically an offering for just about any need, want, and budget from a host of brands and nameplates. Now, Guangzhou Automobile Motor Corporation Limited (GAC Motors) arrives in the country and offers an entire lineup ranging from sedans, to SUVs, to vans.
Thru its local distributor, Legado Motors, GAC Motors held a grand launch at the MetroTent Convention Center in Pasig. It brought with it the GA4 and GA8 sedans, the GS4 and GS8 SUV duo, and the GM8 van. The GS4 is a compact sedan powered by a 1.5-liter, 113hp and 150Nm motor mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. It comes with big car features like stability control and the like.
Those that want an automatic can opt for the GS4 1.3 AT that packs a 1.3-liter turbocharged mill that puts out 136hp and 202Nm of torque. This one is mated to a 6-speed AT and has premium features such as power driver’s seat and a sunroof, among others.
