The Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GA3 will be launched on the Chinese car market in June, price will start around 80.000 yuan. The Trumpchi GA3 is a new compact sedan that will compete head-to-head with fine cars such as the Volkswagen Jetta and Citroen C-Elysee. The Trumpchi GA3 debuted last month on the Shanghai Auto Show.
The Trumpchi GA3 will initially only be available with a 1.6, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. Later on a new 1.3 turbo will join the line-up. Guangzhou Auto is also developing a 1.6 turbo but whether the GS3 will get that engine too is yet unsure. The Trumpchi GA3 will be positioned just under the Trumpchi GA5. Guangzhou Auto is also working on a GA3 hatchback which will hatch in 2014.
Flat-bottomed steering wheel very racy, but color scheme on the dark side. Still, this interior is 100 times as exciting as the Jetta’s.
Smooth design around the C-Pillar with ‘hidden’ door handle. Rear light however are way too big.
