Guangzhou Automobile Group is the parent company of GAC Motor which manufactures an expanding range of stylish saloon cars and SUVs. Already a partner with leading world brands in building cars for the Chinese market, the company has invested greatly in world-class automobile manufacturing facilities to produce its own brand cars and is now rapidly becoming one of the leaders among Chinese producers.
Indeed, for the past two years GAC Motor has claimed first position among Chinese producers in the respected J D Power Quality Study. This emphasis on quality of course can only help to make the brand more respected and consequently more popular.
GAC Motor’s philosophy is clearly seen in the GA6. Its finish and build quality is very good; its styling and features look world-class, on a par with similar cars built by more famous and well-established companies.
The feeling of good quality materials, attention to detail and fine finishing applies to the interior as much as the exterior. The cabin is roomy and comfortable and the materials are all touch-friendly. There are also plenty of technological channels to keep you in touch with world news and your choice of music, and whichever you choose will be delivered in crisp clear notes through the excellent hifi system.
Driving the GA6 is whatever you want it to be: choose Eco mode for a relaxed fuel-sipping ride, or choose Sport mode for a more energetic experience if you are feeling in a lively mood. Yet a third choice – and, like the others, available on the fly – is to choose Manual mode and change gears exactly when you please. Wherever you go, the cabin (and your drinks cabinet) will be cool, the music can be hot and your family sprawled out in comfort on the wide, supportive seats.
Dependable Domasco make it very easy to own a new GA6; everything is done in-house and you will not have the bother of obtaining a bank loan. For your one-stop shopping, get down to the showroom on Salwa Road, opposite HSBC, where staff will be only too happy to answer all your questions, whether about cars or cash!
