Review: Golden Dragon GD Series Mini Bus
Golden Dragon GD Series: The Introduction
Mini buses have quietly become one of the most efficient and most reliable commercial vehicle in the market. And the constant development of the machine continues to play a huge part in increasing the appeal of the bus’ overall value in the eyes of operators, businesses, organizations, and perhaps, most importantly passengers. With a great balance between comfort and costing, these versatile buses such as the Golden Dragon’s GD Series remain as one of the most practical and seemingly long-term choices for operators who are looking for a transportation solution that will save them as much resources as they can, while also having the versatility that other smaller or bigger commercial vehicles cannot provide straightaway.
Golden Dragon GD Series: Key Features
Comfort and style
The Golden Dragon’s GD Series offers a well-designed build that have always been one of the key selling points of previous GD buses. The mini bus features an exquisitely engineered interior that highlights the comfort and convenience for both the driver and the passengers. In addition, the Golden Dragon offers great space and legroom, plus good air conditioning for superior comfort. It’s also easily one of the most appealing bus on the Thomas Bros Trucks website, where you’ll see a good mix of used buses and new releases.
On the driver side, the control dashboard have been ergonomically designed so that the driver can easily distinguish and conveniently access the controls to maneuver the vehicle with relative ease and great efficiency. The bus also features heating and fully ducted air conditioning with individual vent controls, so that each passenger can be at ease during the ride. In addition, there’s also a good range of entertainment components to perk up the mood throughout the roadtrip.
Built to last
The GD contains a comprehensive equipment list that improves the safety and standards of the mini bus series. In line with the Golden Series’ tradition of building quality commercial vehicle, top quality steel has been used for the exterior and key components of the bus. Furthermore, the use of anti-corrosion materials in construction, gives every unit a 5 year anti-corrosion warranty for the bus body structure underpinned by electrophoresis treatment of the complete bus frame.
Safe and secure
To better suit the bus’ comfortable interior design, Golden Dragon have also included some industry leading components to enhance the GD77’s safety features. The vehicle comes in with an ADR 59 rollover compliance (which ensures benchmark levels of safety for passengers), a full air brake system, ABS, door interlocks, one piece (dark tint) side glass, reverse camera, and more.

Golden Dragon GD Series: The Verdict
The Golden Dragon’s GD Series showcased a strong set of standard specs that makes it more than ready for the road ahead. The interior design remains one of the best aspects of a Golden Dragon vehicle, as what is shown here in the GD series. The bus also impressed us with its steady speed and superior control on the road, allowing us to drive with minimal noise and vibration and make accurate turns and stops when needed so. Overall, the GD series deserves a good look for any operators out there, and the option for a 12-seater to a 25-seater bus means you’ll likely find the right fit for your business or organisation.
