Guangzhou Automobile Company (GAC) has been seen on social media, releasing multiple teasers for a new SUV in Pakistan.
Pakistan’s automotive industry has gotten a lot of attention recently as a result of a number of interesting developments, one of which is the entry of another new automaker GAC a few months ago.
The corporation has been active on social media and has teased a future SUV with various teases. The teasers indicated that the vehicle in discussion is the GS3 SUV, despite the fact that they don’t reveal much.
The GAC GS3 is a subcompact crossover SUV that will compete with the Kia Stonic, MG ZS, and DFSK Glory 500 when it hits the market. It is sold in a number of countries and is one of the most popular SUVs on the market.
The GS3 SUV is available with two engines in the global market: a turbocharged 1.3-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 134 horsepower (hp) and 202 Newton-meters (Nm), and a naturally-aspirated 1.5-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 114 hp and 150 Nm of torque.
The latter had a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission, whereas the former is only available with the 6-speed automatic transmission. In a few regions in the world, the SUV is only available in front-wheel-drive (FWD) model.
Because the GS3 is a newer model, it comes with advanced features including active headrests, airbags, blind-spot warning, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), a 360-degree camera, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and traction control.
Although the manufacturer has not yet announced a release date or pricing, it is expected that the GS3 will be priced to compete with the Kia Stonic and MG ZS petrol-powered models. It’s expected to be an affordable new challenger at this price point.
