Spy Shots; Geely Emgrand EC9 sedan, the Interior
Published on January 27, 2014 by W.E. Ning
The best spy shots so far of the interior of the Geely Emgrand EC9 sedan, showing a luxurious but not overly exciting design. Steering wheel bound in leather but the dials look rather simple. Materials however seem very good.
The Emgrand EC9 is the production version of the Geely Emgrand KC Concept that debuted on the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show. The production version will debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and it will be launched on the China car market in the first half of the year.
Wood nicely done but the screen seems on the small side. The Geely Emgrand EC9 will be powered by existing Geely-developed 2.0 and 2.4 liter engines, mated to a 5-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Earlier on we heard rumors the EC9 would be powered by Volvo engines, and other rumors about a new 2.0 turbo. The Volvo engines were apparently ditched because they would make the EC9 too expensive. The status of the 2.0 turbo is unclear.
Spacious cabin. Lots of leather. Dual-zone climate control. Fancy control box on dash top won’t be available in production car…
Geely is seriously testing the EC9, two camouflaged examples were seen unguarded on a parking lot.
