In China, the start of sales will occur soon. The pre-production prototype is tested without any camouflage and demonstrates a completely new direction in corporate design.

Geely decided to seriously change the concept of corporate design. Back in 2018, a preliminary version of the new ICON crossover was presented. The model features an unusual front design, pronounced stampings on the sides, futuristic decor and a profile in the Range Rover style. And judging by the live photos of the test prototype, the production version did not go far from the concept.

On the streets of China, the car is tested without any camouflage. This allowed us to examine in detail the future novelty, and decide on the differences from the conceptual version. Conventional mirrors instead of cameras, roof rails and classic door handles instead of retractable immediately catch your eye. Although they may appear in the top trim levels. Alloy wheels also differ.

┬áIt will be based on a similar platform with the Geelu SX11 – the modular BMA platform. So far, it is known about the only 1.5-liter engine with a capacity of up to 177 horsepower from Volvo. In Russia, the crossover will be known under the name Geely Coolray, and will appear no earlier than 2020.
