2012 GWM C1

GWM used the Durban Motor Show (November 2-4, 2012) to introduce its new H6 SUV to the public.

GWM Gateway, the latest dealership to join the automaker’s network of 78, welcomed visitors to its Durban exhibition stand where, apart from the Steed 5 pick-up range, H5 SUV and the newly launched C10 compact hatch, show visitors feasted their eyes on the new H6 SUV.

'POSITIVE RESPONSE'

Design-wise, the H6 boasts refined lines and sportier contours and is aimed at both male and female SUV enthusiasts.

According to GMW, comfort and safety features abound, and visitors were delighted by its spacious boot and luxurious interior.

The H6 will be available at dealerships early in 2013.

Tony Pinfold, chairman of GWM South Africa, said: “Every opportunity to interact with existing and potential GWM customers gives us great insight into our market. Needless to say, we find events like the Durban Motor Show highly valuable brand building exercises.

"Seeing the public’s increasingly positive response to our affordable quality proposition, and new vehicles like the H6 in particular, makes us even more determined to exceed their expectations.”

In 2013, GWM will celebrate its sixth year in South Africa and is planning more new vehicle launches to mark the occasion, the company said.
