GAC Motor PH unveils 2nd-gen of GS4 1.5L 270T | Motourismo
More power, technology, fuel efficiency, and stylish compact SUV
GAC Motor Philippines officially launched the All-New GAC GS4, the second generation of the multi-awarded compact SUV, now updated with a more sporty and sleeker look and added technologically advanced features.
The new GAC GS4 has a redesigned look from front to back. It features sleek LED headlights with LED daytime running lights. It looks more muscular due to its bolder front grille, and sharper edges to further highlight the silver-finished grille and brand emblem. To complete its modern look, the rear has been equipped with new dynamic LED taillights, a metal chrome on the tailgate, and slimmer turn signal lights. It is also equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels and comes with a panoramic sunroof with jam protection.
When it comes to dimensions, the new GAC GS4 is 4,545mm in length, 1,856mm in width, 1668mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,680mm. This second-generation model is wider, taller, but has a lower ground clearance compared to its outgoing year model.
The 2022 GAC GS4 dashboard is inspired by a light prism dual-star design to make it more appealing to the younger generation of customers. The dashboard is equipped with a 3.5-inch instrument panel display, and an 8-inch LCD infotainment display, with Bluetooth and Apple Carplay connectivity. It also has a 6-speaker system, a multi-functional steering wheel, with audio and cruise control.
Unlike its predecessor, the new GS4 is now available with either two-tone (black and caramel brown) or black leatherette seats. The front is equipped with 6-way and 4-way manual adjustable sport-inspired leatherette seats, with lumbar support for a more comfortable driving experience. Meanwhile, the rear seats have central armrests with cupholders and three independent adjustable headrests.
The interior is made up of high-quality and eco-friendly raw materials such as low-odor water-based PVC leather, and low-odor polypropylene plastics, to help in eliminating the sources of unpleasant odor. The 2022 GS4 also has a high-performance air-conditioning filter with PM1-level filtration that keeps clean and refreshing air in the cabin. It also filters over 99.7% of smaller dust particles, common dust, and pollen.
The 2022 GAC GS4 is powered by GAC Motor’s self-developed 3rd-generation of Euro 5-compliant 1.5L turbocharged engine that is mated to a 6-speed automatic Aisin gearbox capable of producing 166 horsepower at 5,000 rpm, and 270 Nm of torque between 1,700 to 4,000 rpm. It enables the vehicle to produce smooth power output, better fuel economy, and lesser carbon emissions to the environment. The vehicle also offers three driving modes: economic mode, manual mode, and sport mode.
The GS4’s strong power output and fuel efficiency are brought by Bosch’s 2nd-generation high-pressure system; a single-cycle triple injection technology that ensures high combustion efficiency; and a low-inertia turbocharger that gives a faster response and earlier peak torque.
For the occupants’ safety, the 2022 GAC GS4 is equipped with dual and side airbags, an anti-lock braking system (ABS), with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), a traction control system (TCS), a rear parking camera, parking sensors, electronic parking brake, three-point seatbelts with alarm, ISOFIX child seat anchors, brake hold assist, engine immobilizer with anti-theft alarm, and window jam protection, and tire pressure monitoring system.
The GS4 is built on a high-strength steel-safe chassis that does a great job in eliminating vehicle vibration and protecting the occupants of the vehicle from an intense collision impact. For better stability at high speeds, the GS4 is equipped with Bosch’s latest ESP 9.3 that corrects oversteering at sudden cornering and sudden lane change. It also has a 14-in-1 active safety system that provides uphill and downhill assistance.
The 2022 GAC GS4 1.5L 270T GB is now available at an SRP of Php 1,098,000 in five colors: Lightning Blue, Rosefinch Red, Benite Gray, Ivory White, and Elegant Black. The unit also comes with a 5-year or 150,000kms warranty, whichever comes first.
