Geely sedan for 487,000 rubles is again updated: this time the decor


The Geely Vision sedan (aka FC or GC7) in the Celestial Empire has been produced since 2006, when it was created, the Chinese were “inspired” by the Toyota Corolla E120 series. By the way, in 2008-2010. Four-door Geely was also offered in Russia, but the demand was small. In the homeland, Vision has been transformed several times, there is no obvious similarity with Toyota for a long time. The sedan underwent the last major restyling in 2017, and now the “four-door” 2020 model year is ready for the start of sales.

This time there are few new things, the most noticeable change is in front. So, Vision acquired “gills”, in which four-section LED DRLs are built-in, now there is less chrome on the radiator grill, it has a new brand emblem on it – with a black background instead of a black and blue “shield”. The shiny strip was removed from the rear bumper, the reflectors were moved higher. The bumpers themselves are also different, and the sedan also received 16-inch wheels of a new design. The dimensions are most likely the same: the length is 4599 mm, the wheelbase is 2615 mm.

In the cabin there were other airflow deflectors, gray inserts appeared on the doors, black-gray “leather” instead of black-brown appeared in armchairs. Also refreshed multimedia system – improved voice control system. As before, the top versions of the sedan put cruise control, parking sensors, a rear view camera, an electric sunroof.




The engine also did not change: Geely Vision is equipped with an “aspirated” 1.5 (109 hp, 142 Nm), which meets the latest local eco-standards. The motor is paired with a five-speed “mechanics” or variator. Sedans with a pre-reform engine 1.5 are still on sale. Instead of a CVT, it is equipped with a four-speed automatic. Also, Vision was previously available with a 1.3 turbo engine (133 hp), but this engine was removed from the range last year due to low demand, dealers do not have such machines.

Prices have not yet been announced. A restyling sedan with an engine that meets new standards costs from 53,900 to 73,900 yuan, which is equivalent to about 488,000 – 667,000 rubles at the current rate. Updated Vision, if it rises in price, is not much.

The current “four-door” in China is losing customers: in January-October 2019, 65,203 cars were sold, which is almost half as much compared to the same period in 2018.

Vision is not going to return to Russia. Among the closest Geely premieres in our country are the compact Coolray SUV (Binyue or Binyu at home), transformed Atlas (in China it is Boyue Pro) and a cross-coupe.
