Geely has unveiled a luxury minivan with a Rolls-Royce-inspired interior. The updated one-car Jiaji can add a luxury modification of the First Class with a four-seater saloon, curtains on the windows, a ceiling with a “starry sky” effect and multicontour rear seats. Outside, the top version of Geely Jiaji will stand out with a two-tone body paint, an abundance of chrome elements, original bumpers and wheels.
Geely Jiaji is an inexpensive 4.7-meter three-row minivan that has been in production since 2018. A month ago, the model underwent a spot update and lost its hybrid power plants, and now the Chinese brand is monitoring the reaction of buyers to the extraordinary configuration of the First Class.
Chrome-plated multi-spoke wheels, mirrored glass edging, door handles and roof parts make it possible not to confuse the Geely Jiaji VIP version with the usual ones. The aerodynamic body kit has been changed, an imitation of exhaust pipes appeared at the back, a massive “lip” along the bottom of the bumper at the front.
The main changes in the cabin: instead of the usual layout according to the 2 + 2 + 2 or 2 + 3 + 2 scheme, the “first-class” minivan has separate second-row seats. There are electrical controls, heating and ventilation, the rear passengers are separated from the outside world by curtains, and the demo Jiaji has an interior sheathed with light leather and blue suede. Light fixtures and a starry sky effect ceiling are included.
The ambitious name of the First Class hints at a special ride comfort, but the chassis and power plant modifications were not reported, which means Geely Jiaji will retain the usual spring suspension (front – like McPherson, rear – semi-independent beam) and a bunch of 184-strong (300 Nm ) “Turbo four” 1.8 and 7-stage preselective “robot”.
Currently, the top-end Geely Jiaji with a panoramic roof, six airbags and curtain airbags costs 142,800 yuan ($ 22,400), but if the First Class version goes on sale, it will be more expensive.
While the press service of Geely has not confirmed the expansion of the line, but with the proper reaction of the public, the addition of a luxury package is possible.
