Earlier this January, Geely dropped teaser photos of their upcoming Sports Coupe SUV. While details were scarce at the time, it showed that the Chinese automaker was planning to launch something in the likes of the BMW X4 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe; an SUV with a coupe-like design as its name implies.
Now, Geely has officially revealed the upcoming Coupe SUV in full. Codenamed FY11, it will be the third vehicle launched by the Chinese automaker this 2019 along side an electric sedan and MPV.
The upcoming FY11 will be the first Geely model built on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) which was jointly developed with Volvo. Aside from the FY11, the CMA platform is currently being used by the Volvo XC40 as well as Lynk & Co models. The upcoming Coupe SUV will also be using the same 2.0-liter engine which produces 235 PS and 350 Nm torque, and will be available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations.
Design wise, the FY11 bears a lot of similarities with the X4 and GLC Coupe with regard to its fastback-like shape. However it does have a wider profile, giving it a more muscular look while still being stylish. In front, it bears Geely's "expanding cosmos" grill which is flanked by the SUV's slim 'arrow shaped' headlights. A chrome trim piece then connects the headlights and runs under the grill. The lower part of the front bumper is then comprise of large air intakes.
At the rear, it features slim LED taillights which are designed to resemble a Chinese fan. Like the front, a chrome trim piece also connects the two units together. It then has a twin exit exhaust setup, giving SUV a sportier look.
Full details regarding the Geely FY11 such as size and performance figures have yet to be revealed. In fact, the official name of Geely's upcoming Coupe SUV has not been announced yet. Expect more information, including its name, to be revealed in the coming months.
