New Geely Boyue L SUV Unveiled in China
Geely has formally unveiled the all-new Boyue L SUV in China that will be slotted between the Boyue and the Xingyue L in the Chinese market. Based on the familiar FX11 prototype inspired by the Vision Starburst concept, the Boyue L features a striking new design language that will also be applied to future Geely models.
The front end renders headlamps that are vertically integrated into the bumper. There is an array of dashed lights with a lit-up Geely emblem in between, residing on top of a mesh grille giving the vehicle a very distinct & identifiable front end. The side profile features a crease that runs over the doors to the waistline and onto the D-pillar while the sloping roof adds to the sporty stance of the vehicle. It has a dual-tone paint job with a black roof and black pillars, matching the black bumpers and wheel arches. The rear end features boomerang-shaped LED lights connected by a full-width light bar.
Inside, there is a new double-D cut multi-function steering while the dashboard gets a gigantic 13.2-inch horizontally oriented central touch screen and a digital instrument cluster. The operating system is called ‘Geely Galaxy OS Air’, which enabled OTA updates. Computing power comes from a Qualcomm 8155 chip.
Measuring 4,670/1,900/1,705 mm with a 2,777 mm wheelbase, the new Geely Boyue L rides on Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform which is the latest offering from Geely & is deployed in its small and compact-sized vehicles. The technology was jointly developed by Volvo and Geely under their China Euro Vehicle Technology AB (CEVT) R&D banner.
