The Geely Borui has been launched on the Chinese car market. Price starts at 119.800 yuan and ends at 229.800 yuan ($19.300 – 37.020). And yes you read that right, it is the ‘Borui’, not the ‘Borui GC9′. The GC9 designation has been dropped completely, a rather late decision apparently, as the cars we saw in December still had a GC9 badge.
This stylishly grilled Geely Borui GC9 will be launched on the Chinese car market on April 9, or so Chinese media say. However, the Geely Borui GC9 Limited Edition launch edition, which was promised us for March 16, hasn’t materialized yet, so we got to be a bit careful here.
This is the delicately grilled Geely Borui GC9 Limited Edition, ready for its launch on the Chinese car market on March 16. The Geely Borui GC9 Limited Edition is basically a special launch-edition of the regular Borui GC9, which is now scheduled for launch in late April. The Limited Edition is limited to 1000 cars.
The China-only Volvo S60L will become available with a ‘T3′ 1.5 liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. The Volvo S60L is a stretched version of the Volvo S60, it was launched on the Chinese car market in December 2013. The T3 engine is not available in the Volvo S60 anywhere else and only used in the Volvo V40 at the moment. The engine has an output of 180hp and 265nm.The other engines for the S60L, a a 182hp 2.0 turbo and a 214hp 2.0 turbo, will continue.
The three-cylinder engine will make the S60L much cheaper as cars in China are taxed, among other things, on engine capacity. The T3 will thus become the entry-level car of the line-up with price expected to start around 220.000 yuan. The current range starts at 269.900 yuan and ends at 330.900 yuan. The Volvo S60L T3 will be launched in early Q2.

Today in Spotted in China & China Car History the Geely Pride SRV, seen here on a parking lot just outside the eastern section of the mighty Fourth Ring Road in Beijing. The Pride SRV was a sub-compact wagon based on the Geely Pride hatchback. It is very rare to see any Pride on the roads of the capital today, and an SRV is even more special, let alone one as well-maintained as this particular example! There was basically nothing wrong with it; it was clean, the paint looked bright, no dents or rust, no missing parts, and everything seemed original.
