Power Train and Drivability
GS4, embodies the highest level of vehicle power systems. GAC MOTOR's new second-generation 235T engine utilises the GCCS combustion control technology and low-inertia electrically-controlled E-Turbo. Featuring comprehensive innovations and optimization in the 3 major areas of design, process and materials, the 235T engine offers unrivalled advantages of high torque, low fuel consumption and excellent mute performance. The torque output is class leading, and considerably more than many of the competitors that use engines of a larger displacement. Moreover, the GS4 is equipped with intelligent configurations, such as PEPS, a smart key system and multi-mode full-dimensional driving memory.
As for safety, GS4 continues to adopt the “GAC safe body structure” and is equipped with the latest ESP from BOSCH. As the only five-star safety car family in China, GS4 will provide consumers with comprehensive premium safety protection.
GS4 constitutes a perfect rendition of the GAC MOTOR brand’s world-leading “Light & Shadow Sculpture 2.0” design aesthetics. A symmetrical and fluent body generates a wonderful high-class temperament. Unlike the compact, thin and light style of Japanese cars, GS4 features dynamic lines and light & shade changes to accentuate a sense of solidness and power of European cars, with a due emphasis on the posture and proportionality of the whole vehicle. Amidst the seamless conversion between light and shade, GS4 acquires a more spectacular image and creates a new breath of dynamism and fashion, uplifting its appearance to a new height.
As for the interior, GS4 carries forward the fine craftsmanship and user-friendly traditions of the whole GS family. The high-end elegant interior exudes a great taste of fashion. The finely crafted dashboard and door panels offer an unrivalled hand feel. The seats are of suitable softness and hardness, while the steering wheel offers a great hand feel. The center console layout and the seat design make most use of the ergonomics philosophy and can fully meet the needs of urban consumers for texture and comfort.
Recently, GAC MOTOR was covered by finance magazine Forbes, which is quoted as saying that GAC MOTOR is no longer an emerging automaker only targeting domestic market, but a globally competitive international automobile enterprise. Thanks to its influential power and innovation capability, this young Chinese brand is vigorously establishing an international benchmark as a pacesetter among domestic brands.
