Geely Icon is completely declassified: photo of the salon and approximate costOctober 14, 2019
Back in 2018, an interesting crossover from Geely called Icon was presented at the Beijing Motor Show. As a concept, it was interesting, but did not stand out for anything special among other prototypes. Nevertheless, the model now goes into series, and as a “commodity” model stands out significantly from other models around the world.
The serial version of the model will receive average dimensions with a length of 4,350 mm, with a wheelbase of 2,640 mm. These are classic sizes for a comfortable double-row crossover. Judging by the fact that the press service of the Chinese brand began to declassify the crossover, publishing photos of the interior and exterior, a public debut should take place in the near future. Sales in the home market should begin before the end of 2019
It is worth noting that the appearance of the crossover, significantly different from the corporate style, was completely transferred to the production model. Although there were some “simplifications”. The crossover received classic rear-view mirrors, as well as simplified rims. The salon received significant differences from the concept, but the idea itself was completely preserved.
The front panel has a massive handle on the passenger side, hinting at off-road performance, although the Geely Icon has nothing to do with it. Between the driver and the passenger there is a 10.25-inch display of a multimedia system. A similar screen is used for the instrument panel.
As the power unit, the only 1.5-liter turbo engine developed jointly by Geely and Volvo has been announced so far. Maximum power will be 177 horsepower. Paired with it, a dual-clutch robotic transmission will be installed. Drive only front.
