Published on January 12, 2016 by W.E. Ning
Spectacular Spy Shots of the all new Geely Emgrand S7 in the factory, showing the new compact hatch with a completely new front, featuring new lights, a new grille, and a new heavily chromed bumper. It is possible that Geely is working on a top of the line luxurious version, or it could be an export variant.
The front that we know, and production has started.
The Emgrand S7, formerly known as the Emgrand Cross, stands on the same platform as the Emgrand compact sedan. The S7 will be launched on the Chinese car market within the first quarter.
At launch there will be two four-cylinder petrol engines available: a 1.3 turbo with 133hp and 185nm mated to a 6-speed CVT, and a 1.5 with about 150hp mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Price for all this pretty is expected to start around 75.000 and end around 95.000 yuan.
Later on a hybrid version will join the line-up, based around a 1.8 liter four with 88hp, mated to an electric motor with 54hp. Range on pure electric will be 50 kilometer, and full range 650 kilometer.
The rear of the white car, with different lights, bumper, and exhaust pipes. Compare:
Poorly integrated pipes are a weak spot of the design. Setup seen on the white cars fixes that mostly,
Earlier spy shot of the interior. Flowing lines everywhere, big touch screen in the center console, wood-like materials, analogue dials with a display in between, a flat bottomed steering wheel for racy, a shiny gear knob, and an electronic parking brake.
