2014 Guangzhou Auto Show: Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GA6 unveiled in China
Published on November 21, 2014 by W.E. Ning
This is the new Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GA6 sedan, unveiled at the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show in Guangzhou City, China. Guangzhou in the hometown of Guangzhou Auto, so each year they have to come up with something special, and again they succeeded because the GA6 is the largest car for the brand so far.
A fine looking interior with a lot of darkness and some alu detailing. Screen very small for the day. Instrument binnacle very normal. Gear lever looks kinda hip. More black on the seats and doors and floor. Almost a BMW!
Materials seem all right. Start button. Aircon controls looking spacy. Sporty steering wheel in leather futted with a shipload of buttons. Screen shows just the time, and the wrong time for that.
Exterior is by far the best we have seen from Guangzhou Auto and probably one of the best looking Chinese cars ever. The area around the C-pillar is especially well done. It will be very interesting to see how it all looks with a lighter color, red or white. This boring brown just doesn’t show the lines at their best.
Rear lights are almost the rear.
The Trumpchi GA6 will be launced on the Chinese car market just before the end of this year. Price will start around 160.000 yuan and end around 220.000 yuan. There will be two four-cylinder petrol engines available: a 1.8 turbo with 177hp and a 2.0 turbo with 220hp, both mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT.
Chrome strip over lower bumper. GA6 plate not straight.
The 1.8 turbo with a nice engine cover. Check that out, Beijing Auto!
Front very good as well. Fatass chrome strip on bonnet very daring. Big chromed grille flanked by tiny angry lamps.
