GAC Motor Enters Malaysian Market With GS3 – B-Segment SUV From Only RM89k

One year ago, it was reported that GAC Motor will be entering the Malaysian market through Tan Chong Motor Holdings Berhad (TCMH). Well, this is now a reality, and the GAC GS3 is the first model from the Chinese carmaker to be available locally.

Retailing from only RM88,800, this B-segment SUV is priced quite competitively, especially for a fully imported (CBU) model. This starting price is for the Standard trim; the Premium variant, on the other hand, goes for RM96,800. Of course, these prices include the 50% sale tax exemption for CBU cars until 30 June 2022.

Regardless of which trim you go for, all variants of the GS3 are powered by a 1.5L naturally-aspirated engine that outputs 114PS and 150Nm of torque. It is paired to an Aisin-sourced six-speed automatic transmission, giving the GS3 a rated fuel consumption of 14.5km/l, which is quite decent for an SUV this size.

Standard equipment of the GS3 include 17-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, an 8-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and phone mirroring, four airbags, and fabric/leatherette seats. If you opt for the Premium trim, you get two more airbags (for a total of six), leatherette seats, keyless entry with push start button, and a 3.5-inch LCD instrument panel.

The GAC GS3 is now available for booking in Malaysia. More details on the new B-segment SUV can be found right here, and you can even request for a test drive through this form.
