The GAC GA4 design in its launch day

Being a newcomer to the auto market, GAC Motors is finding ways to distinguish itself from senior players. Its philosophy for manufacturing is eco-friendly and innovative with cutting-edge technologies. The adoption of hi-tech can help the brand to improve its car quality and lower production cost, thus offering customers with better deals.

Having said that, GAC cars also reveal some weaknesses that the automaker needs to work on. The very first thing is the engine power which can be considered limited when compared to its competitors. Though the company planned to co-operate with such experienced producers, the current results aren't improved much.

Another problem lies in the inconsistent styling clues on the design. On a few models, the panel gaps look rather rigid. Moreover, while some buttons are well-built, other details felt flimsy and cheap.
