In 1980, the GSA was launched, featuring a five door hatchback body, new dash featuring PRN
satellites (in the UK the GSA soldiered on with the old style dash for
a year or so) new plastic bumpers and a new grille. The 1 299cm3 engine
from the GS X3 was fitted, along with a choice of four or five speed
manual gearboxes or the three speed semi automatic. The range now
comprised G Spťcial saloon and estate, GSA Club saloon and estate, GSA
Pallas saloon and left GSA X3 saloon.
In 1981, the G Spťcial was replaced by the GSA Spťcial.
Production of the GSA ended in 1986 although the engines continued to be used in the CitroŽn Axel (nťe Oltcit ) until 1995.
