A new spy shots showing the facelifted Geely Englon SC7, with a front-end that is very much inspired by Buick, especially by the China-made Buick Excelle. The facelifted Englon SC7 is expected to debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in September.
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 will to continue in the facelifted SC7 and price will be about the same.
The Excelle is positioned one segment higher in the market than the Englon SC7, so the vehicles don’t compete with each other directly. Still, Chinese media has noted the similarities and it won’t be long before we see the first Englon SC7 with fake Buick badges.
