Geely has released the first images and details with its new flagship model, the GC9, which will be officially unveiled next week.
The Geely GC9 is most likely one of the most interesting cars to ever come from China and this represents the company’s new range-topping model. The vehicle has been previewed last year, at Auto Shanghai, by the KC Concept, and it has a design which may confuse you to believe that it is coming from South Korea. Geely has hired ex Volvo chief designer, Peter Horbury, to be in charge of the styling department, a step which should exclude it from future trials, considering the fact that most Chinese carmakers prefer to copy paste their models.
The new Geely GC9 has a sophisticated exterior design but the one thing that is pulling it down is the front grille. The cabin of the model is also improved compared to other vehicles made in the Asian country and this is also one safe ride, as it has been developed in order to get a 5-star rating in the C-NCAP crash tests. As far as the engine lineup goes, a base naturally aspirated 2.4 liter will be offered for it, along with a direct injected, turbocharged 1.8 liter and a 3.5 liter V6 range topper, all of them connected to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The Geely GC9 will be unveiled on December 15.
