One of Geely’s best-selling models, the Boyue, could be receiving a mid-life update soon, as photos of what appears to be the facelifted model have emerged.
According to Autohome, the updated Boyue is expected to feature the company’s new 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine that does 177 hp and 255 Nm, replacing the current model’s larger 1.8-litre turbocharged unit. Additionally, the new engine is likely going to be paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). The photos by Autohome also portray the updated Boyue with an AWD emblem, hinting that selected variants could feature AWD.
Visually, the updated Boyue gets slimmer headlights up front, flanking a mildly redesigned front grille. The bottom half of the front end also receives some work, now with a more angular approach.
Towards the rear end, the Boyue facelift draws its inspiration from the upcoming Proton X70, with its Geely emblem placed across the trim piece that connects the two tail lights. Geely has also revised the rear bumper design with some subtle changes, which sees the reflectors and rear fog lamp redesigned with slimmer units.
Autohome did not mention when the new Boyue will be introduced, but we will update this space once more information is made known.
