The Newest Sneak Peeks of 2018 Geely Compact SUV. Geely, the Chinese automaker will make a surprising breakthrough with their newest 2018 Geely Compact SUV. The prototype car has been spotted doing some street testing, and some spy shots have been revealed to the world. This car is unique because it will feature Volvo’s CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform. After acquiring Volvo in 2010, it is about time we see some Volvo influences in Geely’s car. Geely and Volvo work together to build this platform and Geely will use that excellent platform in their 2018 compact car lineup. Now, let’s see another insider information we got about this soon-to-be-launched compact SUV.
2018 Geely compact SUV Specifications
2018 Geely SUV will be equipped with the three-cylinder engine for the standard model. And, four-cylinder engine for the higher end model. It will come with hybrid power option as well. Aside from that, the manufacturer has not released any updates about the engine specifications about this compact SUV. However, since it is going to use Volvo’s CMA platform, for the hybrid-powered model, we can expect it to be equipped with T05 twin engine plug-in hybrid powertrain with the internal combustion engine as well as the electric engine.
Exterior and Interior Design
From the spy shots, it is clear that Geely SUV 2018 is built in the same proportions with Volvo XC40 concept car. But design wise, it is slightly different, and it bears more resemblance to the Emgrand series.
Since the prototype spotted on the street is half covered, we still have to wait for more updates if we want to know how this car really looks like. But the roof and window lines don’t look like XC 40 at all. Probably to adjust to the taste of their main market that is China. So even though this car uses the same platform with Volvo XC 40, we can expect an entirely different exterior design.
2018 Geely Price and Release Date
There is no news yet about how much 2018 Geely Compact SUV will be. But, with the CMA technology, we can expect it to be slightly more expensive compared to other compact SUV in its class. It will be launched to the market in late 2017 or early 2018. But, the specific date has yet to be confirmed. This car will first be released in China. There is a rumor since two years ago that Geely is preparing a car to be sold in the European market. There is a high possibility that this is the car they were talking about.
