  • Its arrival in the local automotive market means that Filipino car buyers will have an additional option when shopping for a head-turning, modern sedan. And while the GAC Empow’s exterior can is definitely a looker, its interior is certainly what makes this car superior.

    On that note, let’s take a look at what’s inside the GAC Empow.

    Further, the leather trims feature unique details bearing the GAC badge.

    The PVC leather used on the GAC Empow is both plush and durable, which means that it is both comfortable to sit on and easy to clean.

    Superior seats

    The front seats on the top-of-the-line GAC Empow are heated while the second-row seats are equipped with an armrest and a headrest.

    And while heated front seats may not be a popular feature, especially here in the Philippines, the armrest and the headrest will prove to be useful for rear occupants looking to rest and relax while on the road.

    Rear A/C vents

    The GAC Empow features rear airconditioning vents, the controls of which can be operated on the infotainment system.
