After details of Geely’s B-segment SUV were revealed, photos of a new compact sedan from the Chinese carmaker have now surfaced, thanks to CarNewsChina. This is the upcoming Geely SL, which is set to be launched in China in the second half of 2018.

The model will reportedly be positioned between the Emgrand GL and the Borui, with two turbocharged engines on offer. The first is a 1.0 litre three-cylinder with 134 hp and 180 Nm of torque, while the other is a 1.4 litre four-cylinder producing 131 hp and 215 Nm.

In terms of dimensions, the SL measures 4,680 mm long, 1,785 mm wide, 1,460 mm tall and has a 2,670 mm wheelbase. Compared to the Emgrand GL, it has a longer length (+48 mm) and wheelbase (+20 mm), but is narrower (-4 mm) and shorter in height (-10 mm).

Design-wise, the SL features the brand’s trademark “water ripple” grille at the front – also found on other Geely models. This is flanked by a pair of angular headlights, while the lower part of the bumper has large corner “air intakes” and another inlet.

At the rear, slender taillights are linked by a chrome trim piece bearing the ‘Geely’ name, with integrated two exhaust outlets in the lower apron – reminiscent of what you’ll find on the SX11.
