New 2023 Geely Xingyue L facelift launched in China - CMA platform SUV gets minor updates 01

To call the Geely Xingyue L a Chinese Volvo is not very farfetched considering that it is sitting on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform and is powered by a Volvo-derived engine. Launched in 2021 and sold overseas as the Geely Monjaro, the 5-seater SUV was recently given an update in China.

The changes are very minor with a new Frosted Grey colour offered as well as new headlight and taillight designs. There are two variants for the 2023 model which are priced between RMB 157,700 and RMB 168,700 (~RM 101k-108.5k).

Both variants are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine that produces 238 PS and 350 Nm. Power is sent to the front wheels via an 8-speed Aisin automatic transmission.

Despite being the flagship SUV, the Geely Haoyue which is the Proton X90โ€™s donor car is longer and is offered with a 3-row seating configuration. The Xingyue L is only available with 2 rows but it has a longer wheelbase.

Inside, the Xingyue L also remains unchanged from when it was first launched a couple of years ago with 3 screens placed with each other on the dashboard โ€“ a 10.25-inch driverโ€™s display and a pair of 12.3-inch infotainment screens in the middle and on the passenger side.

Powered by Geelyโ€™s Galaxy OS 2.0, the system is equipped with a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 processor and the setup is offered as standard across the two updated variants.

Besides, the higher-end variant of the two is offered with 3-zone climate control, an upgraded sound system, and an AR-powered head-up display (AR-HUD).

The Xingyue L is not a China-only model as it is sold in left-hand drive (LHD) markets overseas as the Geely Monjaro. Only time will tell if the Xingyue L will be given the Proton rebadge treatment but the next Geely model to be given a Malaysian tiger could be the Emgrand sedan which might be called the Proton S50.
