Another Sub-P 900K Small Crossover Arrives: Meet the 2020 GAC GS3 (w/ Brochure)
Legado Motors Inc., the exclusive distributor of GAC Motor in the Philippines launched the latest addition to its line-up: the GS3 sub-compact crossover. Well-received in markets where GAC is sold around the world, the GS3 is considered by many as a “game-changer” SUV thanks to specifications and features that surpass those in its price range.
Both the exterior and interior styling of the GS3 aim to create a premium riding experience by combining classic chrome elements with a strong, wedge-like styling. The interior features either premium fabric or leather, and boasts of an infotainment system with an 8-inch TFT color display with hands-free Bluetooth.
Designed to be a versatile vehicle, it comes with either a 1.5-liter normally-aspirated engine with 113 horsepower and 150 Nm of torque (150N) or a turbocharged 1.3-liter engine with 136 horsepower and 202 Nm of torque (200T). Both engines are mated to a torque-converter 6-speed automatic.
The GS3 boasts of a China NCAP five-star safety rating thanks to a full complement of airbags, ABS with EBD, stability control, hill descent control, and hill-start hold control. Additional convenience is provided by the electronic parking brake with auto-hold.
“We are extremely pleased with the launch of the GAC GS3 here in the Philippines and we are excited to enter the market at a time where there is great demand for vehicles that respond to the modern lifestyle of consumers,” said Legado Motors Chief Executive Officer Wilbert A. Lim. “GAC as a pioneering global Chinese brand is set to conquer the automotive scene in developing markets such as the Philippines, and we are confident that our value propositions will have discerning Filipino car owners take a second look at our innovative vehicles and own the GAC experience,” he added.
The GS3’s entry-level 150N variant costs P 888,000 while the premium 200T variant sells for P 1,058,000.
GAC Motor dealerships in the Philippines are located at Metrowalk, Pasig City; San Fernando, Pampanga; and Tarlac City, Tarlac. More dealerships are soon to open in Alabang, Muntinlupa City; Imus, Cavite; and Mandaue City, Cebu.
