This is the facelifted Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GS5 SUV, it will be launched on the Chinese car market later this month. The facelift includes a new grille, a sporty skid pad, new headlights and taillights, new bumpers, and an updated interior.
The outgoing Trumpchi GS5 for comparison. Price starts at 123.800 yuan and ends at 229.800 yuan. Engines: 147hp 2.0, and a 177hp 1.8 turbo. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic.
The 147hp 2.0 continues unchanged in the facelifted GA5 but the 1.8 turbo will be mated to a brand new 7-speed DCT. This new model will be called ‘GA5 Super’, really, and they will even use the English word in China. Price of the facelifted car will start around 120.000 yuan and end slightly higher at around 240.000 yuan.
The car on the photos is the Super with the seven speed DCT. New interior with a large touch screen and much better looking materials. Alu and wood detailing. Seats in brown and black leather.
Alloys are new as well, roof rack didn’t change.
New bumper with integrated exhaust pipes, looking kinda square.
Tspeed is turbo. Super is super.
