GS5 has attracted much attention in the Middle East with both its aesthetic design and high quality. Right from the start of R&D, GAC MOTOR has been placing stringent controls over the quality and performance of the vehicles.

The vehicles must pass CAE verification, system tests, vehicle tests, and go through seven types of road conditions such as “extreme heat, high humidity, low temperature, ice, and snow”. This ensures that the products can better adapt to the driving environment in the Middle East.

Recently, GAC Motor presented the all-new GS5, which has achieved excellent sales since the appearance of the first generation in the region’s markets in 2012, and the popularity of this model continued over the past years despite the addition of multi-use models to the GAC family.

The front grille of GS5 adopts GAC MOTOR’s “Flying Dynamics Grille 3.0” design concept, giving a strong visual impact with its matrix LED headlights. The strong lines of its body contour, are steady and high-spirited, complementing the owner’s temperament and taste.

This new generation of the all-new GS5, dons a modern look. The exterior design is inspired by aeronautics and includes a front grille consisting of four wide chrome strips with the brand logo in the middle, merging with the three-lens LED headlight. Below the sides of the front bumper are fog lights.

From the side, the elegant design lines continue along the body, and the chrome “Roof Rack” shines on the car roof, with a chrome strip around the side windows. Electrically adjustable and folding mirrors with turn signals and side cameras provide an innovative view of the vehicle. As for the door handles, they come in the color of the car with a chrome touch strip insert. The vehicle has 19-inch wheels with a sporty design.

From the rear, we find a spoiler above the rear glass that embraces the brake lights, and below the glass, 3D LED taillights give the rear design an elegant look.
