2016 Geely Dihao GS.jpg

Geely Emgrand GS (吉利帝豪 GS). 2016 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door sedan. F/F, 1299, 1799 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Smart hatchback with Geely’s new design language under Peter Horbury, with some concessions to the crossover market (roof racks, big wheelarches). Two engines at launch, a 1·8 developing 95 kW and a 1·3 turbo developing 98 kW, but neither really geared for performance driving. Long wheelbase, at 2,700 mm, exceeding even that of the Geely Boyue SUV. Driving position not the best. Lack of horizontal travel in gearshift. Steering feel on 1·8 more weighted. Ride not at the top of the class with rear torsion beam, but excellent refinement, with very low noise levels, and safe handling. Quality better overall since Geely bought Volvo, with most interior surfaces feeling acceptable by international standards.

Manufacturing location: China

Marque: Geely | Model: Geely Emgrand
