GWM has introduced an upgraded version of its M4 light crossover in South Africa.
The GWM M4 was introduced to the South African market in 2014 and this latest version adds daytime running lights, rear park assist and a car-finding remote key fob function to the specification list.
“Our customer base knows what they want from a car. The tighter economy has also forced customers to shop around and get the best value for their hard-earned cash. The GWM M4 provides exactly that – it's a good-looking vehicle that ticks the affordability, style and safety boxes, and suits a more adventurous lifestyle”, says Hans Greyling, GWM Sales.
Technical and safety spec
The GWM M4 is fitted with a 1.5-litre petrol engine that delivers 71 kW and 138 Nm of torque to the front wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. The model has a ground clearance of 185 mm and rides on 16-inch alloy wheels.
In terms of safety, the GWM M4 features ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, a seatbelt warning function and child seat anchor mounts. Other features include a rear-window defogger, height-adjustable headlamps as well as front and rear foglights.
The GWM M4's interior features include a trip computer and a multi-function steering wheel that can operate the audio, Bluetooth and cruise control functions. The M4 is also equipped with automatic air conditioning and electric windows. In terms of storage, cup holders are provided and the luggage bay features a retractable cover. The rear bench can split 60:40 for added practicality.
