First impressions are everything.
Whether you're making friends at school or applying for a job, or pushing your business to the next level, making a great first impression is absolutely important.
In the automotive world, that first impression depends greatly on one thing: the showroom experience. Every car company needs to have a great showroom that makes customers feel welcome, feel at ease and impressed and confident in the brand.
The newcomer in the automotive industry, GAC, knows this by heart, and that's why they've built a brand new flagship dealership at the center of Metro Manila.
GAC is one of China's largest automakers and is based in Guangzhou, hence the G emblem on their automobiles. GAC is so big that they have joint ventures with Fiat Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Honda, and Toyota to design, engineer, and produce cars for the massive Chinese auto market.
In the Philippines, GAC is being imported by Legado Motors, spearheaded by Narvacan Mayor and former Ilocos Sur Governor Luis “Chavit” Singson together with Chief Executive Officer Wilbert Lim.
The story behind the arrival of GAC involves a fortunate happenstance when Mayor Chavit Singson and Wilbert Lim visited Hong Kong, they were invited to head on over to Guangzhou to visit the factories of GAC. Needless to say, they were impressed at the scale of GAC's operations and the quality of their automobiles, so much so that it only took them a year to set up Legado Motors and open a showroom with grand expansion plans for the GAC brand in the Philippines.
The GAC flagship showroom, Legado Motors, occupies a massive 5,700 square meter lot strategically located in the Ortigas central business district beside the Metrowalk entertainment complex.
The showroom itself measures in at 520 square meters and is properly bright so that customers can examine the quality of GAC's automobiles up close and in detail. The sales staff are more than happy to take you around on a tour of all their models, ranging from the small GA4 sedan, all the way up to the larger GAC GM8 luxury minivan, and show what you can expect from their vehicles.
Once you do decide to take home a GAC as your next car, you can examine it from the comfort of the airconditioned releasing area towards the back of the showroom.
From there, you can relax as your vehicle is prepared for delivery to you, with services such as tinting and other kinds of final inspection processes, as GAC wants only to make sure that your car is in perfect condition for you.
You can see the expansive service area of the GAC flagship dealership complex. They have seven work bays and six lifters to service customer cars, and have a staff that has been fully trained up in the best practices of the automotive industry.
They have a tire alignment area, an overhauling room, and even separate areas for airconditioning and electrical work, body repair, and paint.
And when it comes to parts, you need not worry as GAC stocks up on the most commonly consumed parts and accessories at their warehouse to make sure that your car gets back on the road as quickly as it came in.
GAC wants to make a serious impression in the Philippine automotive market, and the showroom is proof of their grand ambitions to make it big. To know more about GAC, visit the Legado Motors dealership along Ortigas Avenue and see what the future holds for you with GAC.
