Ever since GAC Motor Philippines was taken over by Astara Philippines, the Chinese brand has undergone rapid growth, with the introduction of such models as the Empow, the Emkoo, and the GS3 Emzoom.

With this, the automaker announced today at its “Discovery Drive Fest” that it had achieved an impressive 276% year-over-year growth in the past seven months, selling 825 units in that period.

Simply put, this is the top-of-the-line variant of the SUV. It has the same features as the 2WD variant but with some bells and whistles, including a 10-speaker Alpine sound system, a ventilated front armrest compartment, and additional drive modes for traversing rough terrain.
