Geely Englon SX6

The Geely Englon SX6 is a new concept that previews a cool urban sporty small SUV that might see production in the future. A Geely booth-person said 2015 but they always say that, we”’ believe it when we see the first spy shots. The Englon SX6 has a huge grille and stands on the same platform as the Englon SC7-RS and Englon SC&-RV concept cars. Yez indeed, Geely has concept-car families.

Well, slap a Volvo badge on, put something hybrid under the bonnet and sell it in Europe. Geely sais two engines are possible for the SX6: a 1.5 or 1.3 turbo, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT. Geely also described the SX6′ purpose in a brochure, I will now quote one paragraph:

Audacious and innovative interior, much of the mellow surface and sharp line, coupling hardness with softness. Golden ratio to ensure roomy internal space and optimization of external size.

Brilliant machine, I want one, but I like that SC7-RS a lot as well, I’d better buy the whole family.

    Amazing quick ‘copy’ of Bentley SUV , these Chinese can copy / improve on existing models. Pity they have had problems in the EU with safety tests. No doubt they will learn and conquor.
    Saw you on German TV.
    What do you mean by a car being ‘listed’ – is it a Govt. approval to be sold or is it the manufacturer putting it on sale ?

    Not really. Geely’s Englon concept was first shown in 2010, Bentley in 2012
    Geely EC7 has no problem passing the E-NCAP test
