Buyer’s Guide: 2019 GAC GS4

The entry of Chinese car manufacturers such as Geely, BAIC, and GAC in the country has certainly made the local automotive industry a more robust sector of the economy. Not to mention, their cars fill plenty of gaps in the price market brought about by the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law, which saw a good number of cars increase by PHP100,000 or more.

Buyers saving up for the likes of a Toyota Rav-4, Mazda CX-5,or Honda CR-V may feel extremely disappointed when their prices saw a five- to six-digit increase post-TRAIN. If you’re one of them, you may breathe a sigh of relief, because the 2019 GAC GS4 is coming to the rescue. Costing at PHP1,188,000, let this 2019 GAC GS4 Buyer’s Guide enlighten you on why this Chinese-made compact crossover deserves your hard-earned cash.


The goodies begin with a turbocharged 1.5 liter engine that gives off 151 hp and 235 Nm of torque. Super-smooth gear change is then provided by a six-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, an independent four-wheel suspension comprised of a MacPherson-type front and multi-link beam rear further adds to what GAC describes as an “exhilarating performance.”


The GS4’s design signature is characterized by what it calls ‘Flying Dynamics’ combined with Light-and-Shadow Sculpting 2.0. The look of the front end isn’t all that captivating, but the side panels are another matter altogether. Smart use of straight lines give the GS4 a truly upscale look worthy of a much higher price tag.


Driver and passengers alike will be welcomed by the arching 360-degree suspended wraparound interior and large-infotainment system. Hexagonal shapes abound, giving the entire cabin a consistent feel. A four-spoke, leather-wrapped, multi-function steering wheel ensures you’ll enjoy every turn you make. The steering wheel comes with mounted cruise, mode, and DSP controls for extra convenience. A powered sunroof and passive entry and start systems further add to the GS4’s luxurious appeal.


GAC describes its boot space as a “super-size flat bottom trunk” that maximizes storage space. And if you’ve got larger cargo to haul, the rear seats can fully fold flat, giving you all the storage you can possibly need.


The 2019 GAC GS4 boasts outstanding ground clearance and off-road safety features, which can be extremely helpful when you’re navigating our flood-prone streets. SUV roof strength has been tested according to North American standards and certified as providing the highest protection possible in a car. There are airbags all throughout, including driver, front passenger, side and curtain. A bevy of driver assistance features are also present, including Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA), Hill-start Hold Control (HHC) and Hill Descent Control (HDC) System.

Our Verdict

With everything that the 2019 GAC GS4 can offer, it’s clear as day that this Chinese crossover can go toe-to-toe with its more established (and pricier) counterparts. If you’re on a tight budget and looking for a five-seater that offers great bang for the buck, make sure to check this car out.

    I have to say, was challenging choosing a Chinese car but was worthy. In my search for the proper car based of features and price I compared cars like the Toyota, Mazda, Honda, Mitsubishi and Suzuki. One day was walking in the mall and I saw the GAC GS$ car displayed and decided to ask about but once they told me was Chinese car was little disappointed as from the outside looked impressive. I say this because before I explored Morris Garage cars and was disappointed as even thought was built in UK their part was not the best quality (after intensive research). Even though I decided to give it a try and do my homework and find out more about it. To my surprised my finding were more that I can bargain as for part quality and exposure so I decided to give a try and got my Black on Black GAC GS4. Asa owner of Grand Cherokee Summit and Explorer ( I know they are compltely different) this SUV has everything you need and the price, well “Uh LA LA”… 100% Recommended.

      How much was the downpayment and monthly amort when you got yours? Seriously considering getting this one as an upgrade from my hatchback but not seeing enough reviews online and on youtube. Was thinking of getting the all new suzuki ertiga or the vitara until I saw the GAC GS4 which is now the top of my list. 🙂

    Moanica – that’s the way I got her. It’s the brand new zombie

    just the one plastic ‘cuff’ attached to the hand and the field and of course, the dreaded head ties.
    Moanica is palms-down the perfect doll of the reboot. Devon doesn’t have an image of her actress on the
