Geely has just revealed its upcoming SUV that shares the same Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform jointly developed with Volvo. Called the Geely KX11 (at least for now), the upcoming SUV is expected to be the Chinese automaker’s flagship SUV.
Apart from a preview of its design, not much else is known about this SUV, apart from the fact that it’s using the same CMA platform as the Volvo XC40, Geely Xingyue, and Geely Xingrui (Preface). We also have no clue about its dimensions, though we presume this will be slightly larger than the recently-launched Geely Okavango.
Design-wise, the Geely KX11 looks pretty striking, featuring numerous design cues from the Preface sedan. Upfront, we see Geely’s updated “Expanding Cosmos” grille, which now features vertical slats. This is then flanked by a pair of sleek LED headlights with two rows of LED daytime running lights similar to those from the Preface. The side profile of the KX11 is also very sleek, featuring a sharp character line running from the headlamps all the way to the taillights. The proportions also lend the KX11 a dynamic stance, with its short front overhangs and long wheelbase. Unfortunately, no rear photos were shown, though we won’t be surprised if it looks just as sleek as the rest of the body.
No interior shots were also revealed. We do suspect that the Geely KX11 will have a premium interior just like in the Preface sedan. It will surely be high tech too, with digital instrumentation, a large touch screen, and even over-the-air (OTA) updates just like in the Preface.
As for powertrains, it will most likely feature a set of turbocharged inline-3 and inline-4 gasoline engines, along with mild-hybrid, hybrid and plug-in hybrid electrification options.
