Following the launch of its C10 1.5VVT compact hatch in August 2012, GWM has just released the B-grille C10 1.5VVT with a newly designed front grille.


This option puts more choice at the fingertips of customers, as they can now choose the GWM C10 1.5VVT that best suits them: either the edgier original V-grille or the more classic new B-grille option.

The well-styled hatchback still promises to entice motorists with the complete package: good looks, performance and a host of safety and comfort features.

For many consumers smaller is better, seen against the backdrop of rising living costs, increasing fuel prices as well as a volatile global economy. The sexy V-grille C10 1.5VVT and B-grille C10 1.5VVT are 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.

Priced from just R139 900*, both models are packed with the same safety and comfort features that made the C10 1.5VVT so popular, including: height-adjustable driver’s seat, height-adjustable headrests, electric windows, a multi-function steering wheel, air-conditioning, radio/CD/MP3 audio system with auxiliary and USB inputs, dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, central locking, immobiliser and park assist radar, 60/40 split folding rear seats, alloy wheels and ISOFIX attachments.

A 1.5-litre VVT petrol engine ensures nippy performance and good fuel economy and 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. Five-speed manual transmission, disk brakes all round, hydraulic power steering and suspension tuned for ride comfort make for pleasurable driving experiences.

With the B-grille C10 1.5VVT, GWM customers can once again look forward to a quality vehicle that meets their needs and suits their pockets.
