FOLLOWING global sales success with the model in more than 11 countries, GWM recently launched an updated GWM M4 1,5-litre­ compact SUV in the South African­ market.

The M4 has been available in South Africa since 2014, and has proven to be very popular among young-at-heart customers who live in the city, but also enjoy weekends away.

Hans Greyling, GWM sales said: “Our customer base knows what they want from a car.

“The tighter economy has also forced customers to do their homework, shop around and get the most possible value for their hard-earned cash.

“The GWM M4 provides exactly that — a good-looking drive that ticks the affordability, style and safety boxes, and opens up a more adventurous lifestyle.”

While building on the extensive features already offered by the previous edition, the new M4 now also features daytime running lamps, reverse radar and a car locating function.

The updated GWM M4 has a distinctive and dynamic look. A sporty black trim shows that every care has been taken to pay attention to detail, while the refined new front grille with daytime running lamps (DRL) demands attention.

Robust ground clearance of 185 mm, 16-inch alloy wheels, a tail wing and luggage carrier complete the

Powered by a 1,5-litre VVTi petrol engine that’s been designed with fuel efficiency in mind, the two-wheel drive GWM M4 has a slick five-speed manual transmission.

It delivers 71,3 kW at 6 000 rpm and 138 Nm of torque to the front wheels. Power steering ensures smooth handling, and the adjustable steering column provides optimal driver comfort.

Apart from ABS with EBD, the GWM M4’s safety features include dual air bags, a seat belt-unfastening warning system, child seat anchorages and child door locks.

A rear window defogger, height adjustable headlamps, and front and rear fog lamps ensure improved visibility.

The M4 also features an immobiliser, remote central locking and a car locating function.

A trip computer and steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth and cruise control put all the M4’s vital statistics at the driver’s fingertips.

Cup holders, a cargo curtain and separated foldable rear seats with a 60:40 split make for easy organisation and extra luggage space inside the vehicle.

There are also electric windows with push-down function at the driver’s seat, automatic air-con and a CD player.

The M4 is available from selected GWM dealers across SA from R189 900 and comes with a five-year/100 000 km warranty as well as two-year AA Roadside Assistance. A five-year/60 000 km service plan is optional.
