Published on May 20, 2013 by Joey Wang
The first spy shots of the facelifted Geely Englon SC7, it will be launched on the Chinese car market later this year. The facelifted SC7 sports a brand new grille that looks very much like a Buick grille, even the size of the logo seems about the same. The headlights too are in Buick-style, compare with Buick Excelle:
It has been a while that Geely went on the copy-pad in such an obvious way, the company had seemingly changed its ways for the better with its own design. This SC7 is a set-back to the dark old times. The Buick Excelle is made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture, price starts at 96.900 yuan and ends at 118.900 yuan.
The current Geely Englon SC7. Price starts at 55.800 yuan and ends at 85.900 yuan. Engines: 109hp 1.5 and a 133hp 1.8. Both engines are expected to continue in the facelifted SC7 and price will be about the same.
Back-end seems unchanged.
New steering wheel and some extra chome-ish stuff.
