GAC Motor’s GS5 SUV Was Made For The Working Class

GAC’s new GS5 crossover is a stylish offering that follows in the footsteps of its smaller GS3 and GS4 siblings.

Developed by GAC’s R&D centers in Guangzhou, Shanghai and in the United States, the GS5 is said to be designed with young working class drivers and families in mind. At the same time, its modern styling and robust safety features are meant to give it a widely-appreciated premium feel.

“This is GAC Motor’s first trip to the Paris Motor Show, and we hope to communicate and learn from fellow world-leading automobile brands on this incredible platform and introduce the GAC Motor brand to more people,” stated GAC Motor president Yu Jun.

“GAC Motor has a bright blueprint and will strive for it. We are eagerly looking forward to seeing GAC Motor vehicles on the streets in Europe,” he concluded.

Helping the GS5 stand out are design features such as its full-LED headlights with three diamond cuts on the side, the taillights made from 190 LED particles for a bright three-dimensional lighting experience, but also the dynamic shoulder line that stretches from the front fender of the vehicle all the way to the rear.

Other styling cues include the tailgate-mounted spoiler and the ‘floating-roof’ aesthetic for the C-pillar, not unlike that of the GS4.

As for power, the GS5 is equipped with the automaker’s third-generation 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol unit, mated to an Aisin 6-speed automatic gearbox. According to GAC, their newest crossover also has an upgraded chassis, good steering feel and “sports-car-level” braking power, although we assume that last part is a bit hyperbole.

The GS5 is on display at the 2018 Paris Motor Show along with its GS4, GS8, GM8 and GA4 siblings.

    I hate floating roof designs. I hope that is a fad that fades away fast

      I don’t hate it but i don’t think the design works on all cars. This one just looks slapped on to make the profile look more interesting but its still poorly executed.
