Previously, we reported that the Xingyue L will be powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine mated to an 8-speed Aisin gearbox that dispenses 238 PS and 350 Nm. This is apparently what Geely knows as the ‘high-powered version’.

There will be a ‘mid-powered version’ that sees the same 2.0-litre turbocharged engine mated to a self-developed 7-speed wet DCT instead. This version dispenses 218 PS and 325 Nm, capable of a 0-100 km/h acceleration in 7.9 seconds.

But that’s about the difference between the engine options for the Xingyue L. Both versions are equipped with BorgWarner’s sixth-generation 4-wheel drive system. There are 5 driving modes available; Eco, Norm, Sport, Snow, and also Offroad.

Other than engine info, Geely has also revealed more innovating details about the SUV like the headlamp that comprises of 126 individually controllable LED so owners can customise, not just the brightness, but even the lighting effects.

Geely also emphasised on the use of 176 LED on the dot matrix tail lamp. Designers calls the connected tail lamp design a ‘cosmic aurora’ visual effect.

Meanwhile, the dual-tone interior, which combines polished cyberpunk black highlights with classical bronze Verdigris patina, is a nod towards the model’s technological heritage and nobility in Asian history.

Designers have also added suede material to play the ‘premium’ experience that Geely is going for. Geely emphasised that the interior is designed with low exterior noise level in mind, they’ve also installed a 10-speaker Bose sound system to further enhance the in-cabin environment.

And of course, we don't need to mention the widely talked about 100 cm touchscreen infotainment system. Geely is so proud of their largest display system in history that they've been talking about it since the preview of the Xingyue L!

The Xingyue L is capable of Level 2 autonomous driving. If you’ve seen videos of an owner calling a Tesla to autonomously exit a parking lot and drive over to where the owner is, well the Xingyue L is capable of that too.

Geely fitted 12 ultrasonic radars, 5-millimetre wave radars, 4 high-def surround view cameras, 1 monocular camera, 1 dashcam, 1 interior camera, and 24 environmental sensors on the car to be able to manage the feat.

There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
