The Chinese company Geely is preparing to launch a crossover Icon that will be positioned between the models Coolray (SX11) and Atlas. A brand representative confirmed the “Motor” that the model will be global and will appear outside of China. However, concrete plans yet.
In the network appeared the first official photo, which we can consider the exterior design novelties. As expected, the pipelined version is virtually identical to the concept presented a year earlier. The changes are minimal: the camera on the sides gave way to traditional external mirrors, appeared on roof rails and daytime running lamps not made in a hourglass shape, and have three sections. In General, the design of the Icon there is a “space” theme that played on the teaser images.
Geely Icon is based on the “cart” BMA, which the Chinese have developed together with Volvo. At length he reached 4350 mm, i.e. 20 mm longer than the platform Coolray and 169 mm shorter than the Atlas. It is already known that in the engine range will include a 177-strong “turbotron” of 1.5 liters, which is installed on the Volvo XC40. The engine is combined with seven-speed robotized gearbox with double clutch and front drive.
Geely Icon will go on sale in China before the end of 2019 and is expected to cost less than Atlas.
