GAC Trumpchi Emkoo's striking design launches in China

The 4,680 mm (184 inch) long, 1,901 mm (74.8 inch) wide, 1,670 mm (65.7 inch) tall, and 2,750 mm (108 inch) wheelbase Emkoo was previewed in April. Local prices range from $19,451 to $25,345.

The Emkoo's aggressive LED headlights and daytime running lights are paired with a grille dominated by steeply-angled strakes. Side profile is also interesting, with black body cladding, flared arches, pop-out door handles, and thick, angular C-pillars.

Fixed roof spoiler, LED taillights, diffuser, and rectangular exhaust outlets are rear design highlights.

Trumpchi Emkoo uses GAC's Global Platform Modular Architecture, according to Car News China. The base model comes with a 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine producing 177 hp and 199 lb-ft (270 Nm) of torque and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The Emkoo's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder produces 252 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

A 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder with 140 hp and 133 lb-ft (180 Nm) and an electric motor combine for 238 hp. Not a plug-in hybrid, this version has a 2.1 kWh battery pack.

Entry-level Emkoos have a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, while higher-end versions have a 10.25-inch display. All Emkoo variants have a 14.6-inch infotainment screen, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and door switches.
