Geely will be introducing a new B-segment SUV in the near future, as spyshots of the new model have emerged from China.
Codenamed SX11, the new Geely B-segment SUV is said to be underpinned by Geely's new BMA (B-segment Modular Architecture) platform, co-developed with Volvo. Autohome reported that the BMA platform could also be used for future Geely and Volvo models. The Geely SX11 is the first model to be underpinned by the new BMA platform.
Despite this test mule's heavy camouflage, we can see that the front end continues to feature Geely's corporate grille. The bulges on the lower half of the front bumper suggests that the upcoming SX11 could feature a radical-looking front end.
A high voltage sticker was spotted on the rear of the test mule, suggesting that the SX11 could feature a either a hybrid or full electric powertrain.
Peeking inside, the Geely SX11 could feature a floating-type infotainment system and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. Other trim bits are covered in camouflage, though it appears that the SX11 could feature an identical centre console as its bigger sibling, the Boyue.
The source further added that the Geely SX11 could go into production some time in 2019.
