GAC Trumpchi M8 Grand Master Edition has a more atmospheric design, compared with previous M8 models, it has a stronger aura, and it also offers two different types of power, twin engine and pure fuel version, to meet needs of different consumers. Compared to previous models, new car is positioned in a higher price segment, in addition to exterior design, more luxury elements have been added to it.
Exterior overview: many oriental elements added, front side design full of aura
The design of GAC Trumpchi M8 Grand Master Edition's front panel has added many oriental elements, making its front panel look majestic and majestic. The front part includes elements of traditional Chinese lion dance. The design of matrix LED headlights extending down from fenders is very creative. 388 LED beads are used inside, and different lamp language can be selected. The effect is simply amazing.
The size of central grid is very overbearing. Not only is area quite exaggerated, but chrome fender design adds more power to front face. The concentrated arrangement on both sides to middle enhances grandeur of front side. Downstairs, a front-shovel-like design is also added, and a more youthful matte silver color is chosen. The air intake in middle also enhances overall sporty vibe, making front end stately, but not too serious.
The M8 Grandmaster Edition has a standard minivan aspect ratio. The length, width and height of 5212 x 1893 x 1823 mm make M8 Grandmaster Edition seem taller. Side pleat-like waistline design makes sides more layered. The rim has a chrome swirl shape, and 18" size is not lost on M8. If you want to further improve visual effect, you can change it to a larger rim to make side more powerful.
At back of a minivan, where creativity is hard to come by, M8 Grand Master Edition uses a thru-type rear light with a large area of light to bring out richness of rear. The design of rear light also echoes shape of headlights. Visual effects have been significantly improved. At same time, a sports edging similar to front lip is added, which directly enhances appearance of rear of car. At same time, shape also matches body design style, which can be considered finishing touch of rear of car.
Interior design: luxury is still a priority, details of wood texture are impressive
The interior design of M8 Grandmaster series has lost restraint of past. Simple home style makes atmosphere inside car warmer. The center console has a laconic look.
Function and display tasks are carried out by 12.3-inch full-screen LCD instrument panel and 14.6-inch central control screen, especially design of central control screen, which has a similar effect to a waterfall. The shape of platform as a whole, giving people a strong consistency. The engine part of car uses ADiGO 4.0 system. We have also tested it on other GAC Trumpchi models. It has good performance in terms of fluidity and stability, and UI design is also in line with mainstream aesthetic.
Another surprise was use of materials. There is a lot of leather in cabin, which provides comfort and emphasizes luxury of cabin. The co-pilot's panel also uses a landscape sculpt effect to make car feel like a living room, without overly serious feel of traditional minivans.
For an M8 class model, second row is naturally absolute highlight. The M8 Grand Master Edition still features two seats that can be called aviation grade, and every configuration you can imagine, such as memory, can be provided. With addition of configurations such as electric adjustment, heating/ventilation/massage, electric running boards and small running boards, riding experience in rear has improved.
Passengers can control these features using armrest touchpad and exclusive 15.6-inch center control screen. The power box inside can even be turned into a mobile game room or game room, providing more options for home or business scenarios.

We're also looking forward to seeing what changes she can bring to M8. .
The price of GAC Trumpchi M8 Grand Master Edition still holds many surprises, and another surprise comes from M8 Grand Master Edition itself.
