C10 would offer customers in the B segment an exciting, competitively priced option: the C10 1.5VVT compact hatch. This well-styled hatchback promises to entice motorists, especially city dwellers, with the complete package: good looks, performance and a host of safety and comfort features.
Taken for a ride through Jozi’s busiest highways, -although a colleague from Sowetan Itumeleng Motuba was not impressed with the road map- we managed to beat traffic owing to the size of the car.
However, what made us to take opposite route remains a mystery! And it would remain like that…
Ok, back to the car for many consumers smaller is now better, seen against the backdrop of rising living costs, increasing fuel prices as well as a volatile global economy. For this reason, GWM brings motorists the sexy C10 1,5VVT – proof that going smaller doesn’t have to mean sacrificing on quality and style, nor does it have to come with a hefty price tag.
The sporty hatch has a V-shaped chrome grille guaranteed to attract appreciative glances. It also features 15-inch alloy wheels, an integrated exhaust tip and a rear spoiler with a high-mounted brake light, giving it a very contemporary look. Its compact dimensions make parking in tight spots a breeze.
A 1,5-litre VVT petrol engine ensures nippy performance and good fuel economy in the GWM C10 1,5VVT. Drivers can expect a maximum power output of 77 kW at 6 000 rpm, with a maximum torque of 138 Nm at 4 200 rpm. In addition, five-speed manual transmission, hydraulic power steering and suspension tuned for ride comfort make for pleasurable driving experiences.
The C10’s beautiful interior offers comfort and a host of driver-friendly features. There’s the six-way height-adjustable driver’s seat, height-adjustable rear headrests, whilst electric windows, a multi-function steering wheel, air-conditioning and a radio/CD/MP3 audio system with auxiliary and USB inputs take the stress out of peak hour traffic.
To keep you and your passengers safe, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, central locking, seatbelt unbuckling alarm, opening door alert, low fuel warning, rear children door lock, immobiliser and reversing radar have been fitted. A rear windshield defogger and front and rear fog lamps aid visibility.
