GS4 also features an innovative 7-speed G-DCT
transmission to guarantee extremely quick shifting by 0.2 seconds. It is also switchable to Eco,Sport, and Manual modes for maximum driving pleasure.

the air bags, rear brakes, hydraulic energy systems, are produced by TRW in the United States of America.

Body Design containing ultra-strength front and rear anti-collision steel beams. Additional safety features include front, side, and curtain airbags protection, ISOFIX seats for children safety, advanced ABS +EBD system from Bosch, Electronic Stability Program (ESP), high-performance chassis, ventilated disc brakes, parking sensors, rear view camera and anti-theft system among many others.

Sporty exterior

The fierce front grille, adaptive high intensity discharge lamps (Xenon) with LED daytime running lights, LED optical combination taillights, front and rear fog lights, 17” or 18” sporty alloy wheels all together offer elegance in motion.

Interior wise

The GS4 offers a modern driving cabin with a spacious area, comfortable to the family, which provides a feeling of complete calmness thanks to its 360-degree Mute Design System (ASD) which reduces the overall road noise levels by 26%. The center console is equipped with a large 8 inch 3D sound screen to offer a journey full of excitement.
