GUANGZHOU, China -- GAC Motor, China's leading automaker, has released its newest, most comfortable and technologically-advanced medium- to high-end SUV, the GS5, at a product launch event held at the Asia Games Town Gymnasium in Panyu District, Guangzhou.
First unveiled at the recent Paris Motor Show, the GS5 has already made a huge impression with its stunning appearance and emphasis on driving comfort. The GS5's design specifically caters to young consumers living in cities, offering a balanced driving and riding experience that fulfills consumers' needs for practical utility as well as creating personal value by achieving a sense of premium appeal.
Powered by GAC Motor's new generation of car-building technologies, the GS5 SUV is a benchmarking creation that combines rideability and advanced technologies, typifying GAC Motor's pursuit of manufacturing excellence.
Developed using GAC Motor's Cross-platform Modular Architecture (G-CPMA), the GS5 utilizes new third-generation "Ti Power" to achieve a perfect balance between stability and comfort.
The GS5 adopts GAC Motor's next-generation 1.5T GDI engine delivering a vibrant and exciting driving experience with enhanced performance:
- Peak torque of 270T;
- Strong power per litre performance, up to 83KW/L;
- Torque per litre of 177NM/L;
- Equipped with Aisin 6-speed hydrodynamic automatic transmission;
- Features six technical innovations including continuous variable valve timing, patented GCCS combustion control technology and Bosch high-pressure injection system.
The GS5 features an upgraded, high-performance driving chassis.
- 0.088-second rapid steering response time;
- Ultra-small roll angle at bends of up to 0.6g;
- 35.48 m shortest-in-class and sports-car-level braking distance;
- 74 km/h anti-rollover maximum speed;
- Dramatically reduced vibration on level roads;
- 2.38 dB minimum-in-class pulse vibration.
GAC Motor has leveraged its global supply chain system to create world-class products. For example, the compressive capacity of the GS5's roof is far beyond the most stringent U.S. regulatory limits, and the model's five-star enhanced safety package comprises ten smart driving safety guarantees.
Style refined with strength
The GS5's forward-leaning stance is represented by the brand's iconic 'Flying Dynamics' front grille that forms a bold and cohesive structure while spreading its wings into both of the diamond-cut LED matrix headlights to create the impression of taking off.
The body of the GS5 features a suspended roof design and stunning 19-inch machined rims. The dynamic model also boasts rear smart skyline LED run-through taillights and roaring chrome-plated double exhaust pipes.
The GS5 offers best-in-class cabin space both in the front and rear while enhancing the joys of driving with a panoramic sunroof and Qiyun AI mobility solution.
Some of the GS5's functions are remote-controlled, such as activating the onboard triple air purification function with a simple tap of a smartphone.
The GS5 is the latest achievement of GAC Motor's integrated global supply chain; it's a strong player in the compact SUV market sector and is destined to be a future star of the GAC Motor family after the GS4 and GS8.
