Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GA6 hits the Chinese auto market

The Guangzhou Auto Trumpchi GA6 has been launched on the Chinese car market, bringing the brand into a whole new market segment. Price starts 116.800 yuan and ends at 196.800 yuan. The Trumpchi GA6 debuted as a concept on the 2014 Beijing Auto Show in April, and the production version debuted on the 2014 Guangzhou Auto Show earlier this month.

A well-designed interior with fine materials, a large LCD-screen, chrome detailing, and a perfectly round steering wheel. No fashionable flat-bottoms for Guangzhou Auto!

Enough space for three, although the heads can’t be too high.

By far the best looking Trumpchi so far. Sporty and sleek, especially good at the front and around the C-pillar. Bog car: 4850/1830/1485, wheelbase is 2720.

Large logo and a fat chrome strip on lower part of the bumper.

To the power now; the Trumpchi GA6 is available with two four-cylinder patrol engines: a 1.6 turbo with 158hp and 216nm mated to a five-speed manual, and a 1.8 turbo with 177 and 242nm mated to a seven-speed DCT. Fine numbers but the lack of an auto-option for the 1.6 turbo is odd.

Probably the best grille in the business. Four chromed bars topped by a superbly chromed bar running over all the width of the bonnet.

Rear tame by comparison. Integrated wing is nice, but it needs some serious exhaust pipes.

  1. Looks like GAC didn’t pay any attention to their Japanese partners, when it came to learning how to organize engine room layout. I wonder what the engineer in charge, was smoking…..
    Come on GAC, your reputation for quality is slipping.

  2. The exterior is very masculine, with some influence from Hyundai. Interior looks good enough. The rearlights are definitely from the Opel Astra, not bad.

  3. I see a lot of Mazda6 in the interior. The exterior looks a bit like the last generation Sonata, but the lines are a bit sleeker here.

    I would like to see the tail lights as aggressive as the headlights.

    Great looking car though. By far the best China has put out so far,
