Spy Shots: Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GA8 sedan testing in China
Published on February 9, 2015 by Tycho de Feijter
Guangzhou Auto continues to expand the successful Trumpchi line. These are the first Spy Shots of the Trumpchi GA8, a new sedan that will be positioned above the recently launched Trumpchi GA6 sedan. The latter is already Camry-sized, so the new GA8 is going to be big.
Sporty profile with a wide C-pillar.
The base engine for the Trumpchi GA8 will be a 1.8 turbo with 177 and 242nm mated to a seven-speed DCT. Top engine will be a 2.0 turbo which was somewhat previewed on the recent Detroit Auto Sow, where a 400hp 2.0 turbo appeared in a GA6 Limited concept car. The real-world engine will likely have an output of about 225hp.
Typical Trumpchi grille with a lot of chrome and a large Guangzhou Auto logo.
