Geely is changing the way their vehicles look. Instead of the Expanding Cosmos design, the automaker is now going for a more aggressive look with their new “Energy Storm” design language that we first saw in the Geely Vision Starburst concept a few months back. The new design was first adopted by the new Boyue X or Azkarra, as we call it locally. The next Geely to get the updated styling cue is the Emgrand L.
The automaker has released teaser photos of the upcoming Emgrand L. Don't be fooled by the name; it's not a long-wheelbase version of the Emgrand sedan. Besides, the 2022 Emgrand was only launched last month. Instead, the Emgrand L is based on the Emgrand GL, which is a larger sedan and rides on a different platform.
To avoid confusion, the best way to differentiate the two is by looking at the front end. The upcoming Emgrand L ditches the Expanding Cosmos design for a more aggressive-looking face. A massive mesh design dominates the fascia, covering nearly the entire bumper. Meanwhile, slim headlights further lend to the car's aggressive design.
The rear of the Emgrand L is still covered in camouflage, but Geely did give us a peek at the new full-width taillights. Given the drastic change to the front, expect to see some changes to the sedan's rear end as well. At the moment, no interior photos were provided. However, it will likely be given a makeover to match newer Geely models.
There's no word yet on the engines, but it will likely be carried over from the current Emgrand GL. Expect full details to be revealed at a later date, possibly closer to the vehicle's launch.
With two models now adopting the new Energy Storm design language, it will only be a matter of time before other Geely models do the same. That said, do you like where Geely's new design is headed, or do you prefer the current Expanding Cosmos design? Let us know what you think in the comments.
