Geely has released more photos of the new Haoyue, formerly known as VX11. This time, we finally get a chance to see the full-size SUV, available with five or seven seats, in more favorable lighting conditions.
In terms of design, the Geely Haoyue stands out from other SUVs in Geely’s lineup, including the Boyue and Binyue. At the front, there’s the signature “extended universe” grille that forms part of the front fascia and is joined by a powerful bumper as well as angular headlights that sport distinctive L-shaped daytime running lights.
Details post on Wapcar Automotive News that the two sides are square and prominent wheel arches that are highlighted by a full-body black paint that covers the entire lower part of the car. The set of 18-inch wheels and the slightly stroked window line from the C-pillar to the D-pillar are also visible from this angle.
At the rear, the taillights appear to be inspired by the Icon, with the horizontal two-piece taillights joined by a decorative piece with the word Geely in the middle. The rear end looks unremarkable beyond that, while the lower fender can accommodate the license plate holder and two “vent-shaped” sections for the rear reflectors and fog lights. Other lighting elements include a third brake light hidden under the roof-mounted spoiler.
Bringing some numbers into the mix, the Haoyue is 4,835mm long, 1,900mm wide, and 1,780mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,815mm. In keeping with its size, the Mazda CX-8 – also a three-row, seven-seat SUV – is 4,900mm long, 1,840mm wide, 1,730mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,930mm.
Considering these numbers, the interior space looks very encouraging based on these photos. Official details like trunk capacity are yet to be released, but with the second and third rows of seats folded down, the model has a guitar that can be tucked inside for comfortable playing. The rear entry also seems uncomplicated with a door that opens wide when the tailgate is open.
It also feels quite airy inside the cabin, with plenty of glazing to invite natural light inside, including from above, where a large panoramic canopy extends over the front and second-row seats. two. When it comes to the front cabin, we see more hints of the emblem on the dashboard, but not a direct copy.
Unlike the smaller B-segment SUV, the Haoyue’s dashboard sees the corners and the center vents are arranged in a straight line to make room for the traditional hood on a digital display in the instrument cluster. lake. Meanwhile, the large screen in the middle is linked to the car’s infotainment system, with the climate control buttons placed lower.
The center console looks almost identical to the Icon in terms of design, but the cup holders have been moved forward to make room for a large storage area directly in front of the armrest/center storage area.
Reports suggest that under the hood, the large SUV will be offered with two turbocharged engines. The first is Geely’s existing 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine, producing 174bhp and 225Nm of torque, mated to a six- or seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission.
There is also a 1.8-liter four-cylinder unit located on the Boyue Pro that delivers 181bhp and 300Nm. It doesn’t matter much and the larger blender will be equipped with a seven-speed DCT instead.
