Geely has released the first official images of the new Geely Emgrand GL sedan, and is has become quite a beautiful car. The Emgrand GL, formerly knows as the Emgrand compact sedan, is the sedan version of the recently launched Geely Emgrand GS hatchback.
Earlier spy shot.
The Emgrand GS and Emgrand GL are designed by none other than Peter Horbury, and it shows. Overall design is very clean, with a sporty stance and a bulged bonnet. The only things that are not so pretty are the chromed hooked bars around the fog lights. We bet for a beer that these were not designed by Horbury, but added on by someone inside Geely who wanted more shine.
Profile is very good looking.
Engines are the same as in the Emgrand GS: : a 1.3 turbo with 130hp and 185nm, and a 1.8 with 133hp and 170nm, both mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed DCT.
Size: 4725/1802/1478, and wheelbase is 2700.
Spy shot of the interior. Looking very neat with techy materials and leather seats. Sporty flat-bottomed steering wheel and a large touch screen in the middle.
Nice shoulder line and a short rear deck. Great looking car.
Actually not exactly Peter Horbury. The GS’ exterior was designed by Brett, under team leadership of Guy Burgoyne. Horbury is the vice supervisor of the entire design group.
And the same can also be said for the GL.
