Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GS4 – Motorshow Focus
Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!
The SUV has a bold and muscular look.
The Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GS4 in full-production made its debut at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show in April. The SUV made its global debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show as a semi concept.
The exterior of the GS4 looks rugged at the front and sporty at the back. The face has a proper SUV appearance with a bold three-strip chrome grille, projector headlight units and skid plate. The front also receives a vertical strip of LED DRLs and round fog lamps. The side profile has big wheel arches but small tires and black B- and C-pillars giving the car a floating roof.
The rear gets wraparound tail lights, chrome tail pipes and silver-finish skid plates. The GS4 has dimensions of 4,510 mm, 1,852 mm, 1,677 mm and 2,650 mm of length, width, height and wheelbase respectively.
The interior has a dual-tone layout; it is made more interesting by further using a mix of chrome and gloss-black elements. The center of the dashboard accommodates the infotainment system below which are located controls for the audio and air conditioning. The multi-function steering wheel is a four-spoke unit.
Features on the GS4 include adaptive headlamps, anti-glare interior rear view mirror, 6-way adjustable driver seat, 8-inch dual mode 3D voice navigation system, cruise control and anti-pinch sunroof. The safety aspect is covered with 6 airbags, ESP and four wheel disc brake.
The Trumpchi GS4 comes with two four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine options having capacity of 1.3-liters and 1.5-liters. Both engines can be coupled to either a 7-speed DCT or 7-speed automatic gearbox.
