The Chinese novelty will be built on the Swedish modular CMA platform. The competitor Toyota Camry is aimed at a younger audience.
Geely will offer customers an updated version of the Preface sedan, which is based on Volvo’s CMA modular architecture. We are waiting for the appearance of new items this year, while the first photos of the new sedan have appeared on the Internet.
Traditionally, without waiting for the premiere, the Chinese Ministry of Industry declassified the novelty. The images show a sedan with a red body color, “shod” in two-tone alloy wheels. The original grille with an interesting pattern is slightly darkened. It looks stylish and tidy and does not weigh down the front of the sedan.
But the interior of the novelty will be designed by analogy with the Space Time Edition, which was presented a little earlier. The sedan will receive the same seats with Alcantara upholstery, and a better roof made of this material and door cards. The backrests will be decorated with CMA embroidery.
There were no innovations in the engine compartment. The sedan is equipped with a 190-horsepower two-liter petrol turbo engine from Volvo’s Drive-E line. In conjunction with it are a seven-speed “robot” with a double clutch and uncontested front-wheel drive.
The Geely Preface is slightly larger than its sister Volvo S60. Its length is slightly more than 4.78 meters with a wheelbase of 2.8 meters.
