WTC Automotif Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Warisan TC Holdings Bhd, has announced that the GAC GS3 Emzoom is now officially open for booking.

According to the company, bookings can be made with a fee of RM1,000, and the first 100 customers to make a booking will be invited to attend a private event.

The GS3 Emzoom is a B-segment SUV that will go toe-to-toe with the likes of the Proton X50 and Honda HR-V. For the Malaysian market, it will be offered in two variants, namely Exclusive and Premium-R, and is expected to be priced below RM130,000.

The GS3 Emzoom features several distinctive design elements such as the Mecha Wing grille, Laser Eye split LED headlights, Light Dart taillights, electric hidden door handles, ducktail rear spoiler, and crystal gear shift selector.

The right-hand drive preview unit comes with 18-inch alloy wheels. It will be available in four colours: Ivory White, Starlight Silver, Lake Blue, and Graphene Grey.

Powering the GS3 Emzoom is a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 177 PS at 5,500 rpm and 270 Nm of torque at 1,400 rpm. With a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission driving the front wheels, the SUV boasts a fuel consumption rating of 5.9 litres/100 km.

WTC Automotif has confirmed that the GS3 Emzoom will be locally assembled (CKD) at the Tan Chong Motor Assemblies (TCMA) plant in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur. It is expected to roll out from the plant in the second quarter of this year.

The company has also shared that the first GAC showroom will open its doors in Petaling Jaya in February 2024, followed by five more showrooms in Glenmarie, Cyberjaya, Seremban, Johor Bahru, and Pulau Pinang in the first half of this year.
