The new Geely Emgrand L sedan will enter the Chinese market before the end of this year.
The second generation Geely Emgrand model line appeared 5 years ago. She literally underwent minor upgrades every year. But in 2021, the largest update was carried out with a change in the positioning of the models. The Emgrand GS cross-hatchback was transformed into the Emgrand S in the spring, and now it is the turn of the Emgrand GL sedan. Its name is also abbreviated: now it is Emgrand L. But for the sedan, the modernization program turned out to be larger.
The main thing is that Emgrand GL has changed platforms. If the predecessor was built on its own FE architecture, then the Emgrand L is based on the BMA platform, created in conjunction with the Volvo brand. First of all, this means the emergence of modern electronics, as well as stiffer subframes. The wheelbase of the sedan has not changed (2700 mm).
The body of the model remains the same, but all external panels have been changed. For the Emgrand L, a new front end and stern design has been developed, and the sedan has no common elements with the cross-hatchback. The length of the model after modernization increased by a symbolic 10 mm (up to 4735 mm), and in width it increased by 13 mm (up to 1815 mm), while maintaining the same height (1478 mm).
Images of the interior of the novelty are not yet available. The power unit of the Emgrand L is the same: it is a 1.4 turbo four (141 hp) of our own design, which is equipped with a six-speed “mechanics” libre variator. In the Chinese market, the Geely Emgrand L sedan will appear before the end of this year.
