GAC Motor’s vehicle line-up was chosen for its quality, comfort, and performance. Its vehicle line-up boasts it high-strength steel-safe chassis that does a great job in reducing vehicle vibration and protects its participants from an intense collision impact. For better stability at high speeds, the fleet is equipped with Bosch’s latest ESP 9.3 that corrects oversteering at sudden cornering and sudden lane change. The fleet is also equipped with an L-type Mcpherson front suspension that suppresses high-frequency vibration, resulting in better handling, a more stable ride, and better driving comfort. – Rommel F.
