Perhaps some people thought that I was writing about Opel, but this is not so! And the brand with lightning is no longer new for Russia and in general it is not known whether it will appear with us for sure.
The headline was dedicated to another company called GAC Motor. Sales begin this month with the launch of the flagship GS8 model.
A total of 4 configurations will be offered. The most initial version with front-wheel drive will cost 1,898,000 rubles, and the top-end all-wheel drive at 2,489,000 rubles. All variants have an uncontested 2-liter turbo engine of 190 hp. s, which works with a 6-speed "automatic" Aisin from Japan.
It was not possible to get acquainted too well with the new product due to the large number of people who want to see and touch the car live, I hope I will be able to do this later.
The main competitors of the Chinese flagship will be the Kia Sorento Prime and Hyundai Santa Fe, and given that I recently drove one of these brands, it is
highly likely that people will choose the GAC GS8 instead of the Korean . In the Korean I did not like that it was poorly adapted for Russian roads, it was unpleasant to drive and drive in it. Perhaps Kia has only one new bad model, or perhaps the Koreans have never learned how to make cars.
