Looks like a Volvo XC90? This is the Geely KX11, leaked ahead of launch! 01

Part of the similarity comes from the front fascia - its horizontal grille slats are a design touch that can also be found on the Volvo and on the Geely Preface sedan

And this set of photos also reveal - for the first time - the KX11's rear in its entirety.

It seems that this is the first Geely model to wear a lightbar that links both tail lights together. It's a nice touch that makes the car look wider, especially when combined with the concave number plate recess.

From top to bottom: the side mirrors (note camera on right pic), three different wheel sizes and a close-up of the grille.

It seems that the KX11 will come with a 360-degree camera, as well as a choice of three different wheel sizes: 18-, 19-, and 20-inches.

From top to bottom: parking sensors, LED headlights, the sunroof and privacy windows.

Other notable features that the KX11 will be equipped with include a sunroof and privacy windows.

The KX11 sports a triple-screen setup!

What about its dimensions and performance?

This is how the KX11 measures:

2021 Geely KX11 Dimensions

Length (mm) 4,770
Width (mm) 1,895
Height (mm) 1,689
Wheelbase (mm) 2,845
Kerb weight (kg) 1,695

Although speculated to be a more premium product, the KX11 is 65 mm shorter, 5 mm narrower, and 91 mm shorter than the massive Geely Haoyue

The Haoyue.

When compared to the Geely Boyue (our Proton X70) however, the KX11 is 251 mm longer, and 64 mm wider.

The Xingyue's 2.0-litre mill.

Powertrain wise, the KX11 is slated to come with two different engine options, the more powerful of which is shared with the swoopy Geely Xingyue. Details below:

2021 Geely KX11 Performance
Engine Details/output
JLH-4G20TDB

2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder

238 PS / 320 Nm

JLH-4G20TDJ

2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder

218 PS / 325 Nm

Transmission and drive details aren't disclosed yet, however both engines have been paired to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) in other models.

For a brief idea of how this powertrain combo performs, check out our review of the Xingyue at the end of the article.

When is it launching? Is it another Proton?

As mentioned in the opener, the KX11 will officially be launched at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2021. Expect a more traditional name by then, just like the rest of Geely's lineup (think Binyue and Jiaji).

To answer your second question - highly unlikely. The CMA platform isn't cheap to begin with, and we might get the Proton X90 (Haoyue, or Okavango in the Phillippines) instead.
