Chinese car brand GAC Motor is offering the country a wide array of vehicles with great value and relatively affordable pricing. Legado Motors, Inc., the official distributor of GAC Motor vehicles in the country, is adding a new 7-seater vehicle to its model lineup called the GN6.
The GAC GN6 was initially released in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, but has now made its way into the local market. It will be joining the competitive MPV segment in the country that includes rivals such as the Toyota Innova and the Maxus G50.
The exterior features of the GAC GN6 include evident body character lines that run from the headlights with wing-shaped daytime running lights (DRL) to the taillights. The GAC GN6 isn’t difficult to recognize as it shares a bit of a similarity to the Maxus G50. Both Chinese MPVs also share similar dimensions.
The taillights are LED paired with a braking light strip, similar to the GN8 minivan. GAC Motor Philippines is offering the GN6 with three body colors, namely pearl white, elegant black, and peacock blue.
Passengers will benefit from its comfortable and spacious interior good for seven adults. The second-row has captain seats that come with armrests for enhanced comfort. Seats can also be adjusted frontwards and backward to maximize interior space.
One of the features that make the GAC GN6 more comfortable is its 360-degree quiet car technology that cancels ambient noise from its surroundings. The GAC GN6 offers a 324-liter trunk space that can be expanded to 1,100 liters when third-row seats are folded down.
