Geely Xingyue S revealed in grey with lime accents

Handsome as it is, the Geely Xingyue lives in the shadow of its newer, bigger and more practical L sibling. To shine a little bit of spotlight back on its coupé-esque SUV, Geely is introducing a new variant called the Xingyue S, which adds a number of aesthetic flourishes.

Unlike the Emgrand S, the Xingyue S is not a facelift, so it retains the same good looks of the regular variant. There is a new grille, however, which replaces the “expanding cosmos” concentric rings with a black mesh. Beyond that, the changes mostly deal with colour and trim, with specific references to the car’s Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) co-developed with Volvo.

The platform’s abbreviation can be found everywhere on the S, from the exterior side mouldings to the seat embroidery. These, like many other design cues on this car, are highlighted in lime green, contrasting against the grey paint and black interior.

Elsewhere, you’ll find triple lime “thunderbolt claw” slats on the front corner air inlets and a gloss black finish for the door mirror caps, roof, quad tailpipes and 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the black Nappa leather and suede upholstery has been decorated with lime stitching and a “triangular matrix” pattern, while the dashboard trim gets a linear line pattern and the CMA script. Lime seat belts also feature.

No other details have been released just yet, but it’s been reported that the Xingyue S will be powered exclusively by a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine. In the regular Xingyue, the mill makes 238 PS and 350 Nm of torque and is paired to an eight-speed Aisin automatic gearbox and either front- or all-wheel drive. A lower-output 190 PS/300 Nm version is also expected.

    P1 could easily request billion investment Fund to license this Xinyue plus others SUVs from Geely’s stable – Emgrand S, ICON & KX11 asap. Invest now and the return will be quadruple the following years, worth it tho!

      Won’t it be better to just sell more of the Proton’s 50.1% share to Geely in order to secure the other model and make money?

      Ask from who? Proton is now a private entity so they got no standing to get funding from gomen anymore. Dredd disagree.

        Proton is 51% owned by DRB, a Government linked company. so is okay for Proton to get more funding from Government… especially doin car R&D which needed tens of Billions..

    Problem is that parts not available in UAE market. If parts easily available like others brand then it will be successful.
