Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Geely's first MPV model—the Jiaji officially hit the market on March 11 as the automaker's first step to build presence in MPV segment. Presale prices for three variants range between RMB99,800 and RMB182,800.
The front face design cues on the three-row MPV include the Geely's signature "cosmos" intake grille coupled with a V-shaped chrome trim, LED headlamps with a four-bar LED arc array for daytime running lights and LED fog lights. The side profile features waistlines stretching from the wheel eyebrow to the rear end and the sooty C-pillar. The model also has a 'floating' roof which tapers down to meet a small-sized tailgate-mounted spoiler.
A chrome trim strip—with Geely lettering—bridges the taillight clusters which feature LED light source as well. Under the tailgate are silver-black shield and the “hidden” exhaust pipes.
Drivers will also find a panoramic wrap-around cockpit, a multifunctional steering wheel and a 7-inch liquid crystal instrumental panel inside the vehicle. Other niceties include a 12.3-inch multimedia display at the center console and an electronic gear lever under the outlet of air conditioner.
The Jiaji will be offered as a six- or seven-seater, in three seating layouts (2+2+2, 2+2+3 or 2+3+2) to meet different consumers' needs.
The Geely Jiaji is fitted with such intelligent driver assistance systems as ICA (integrated cruise assist), TJA (traffic jam assist), ACC (adaptive cruise control), LKA (lane-keeping assist), RCW (rear collision warning), RCTA (rear cross-traffic alert) and Bosch's 9.3 ESP (electronic stability program). Especially, the RCTA system is able to detect cars and pedestrians within 35 meters on both left and right sides when a driver is reversing the vehicle. If any collision risk was sensed, the system will warn the driver by turning on the alert light in rear-view mirrors, delivering risk alarm via a multimedia display and making a warning sound.
Moreover, the new model's safety functions are also characterized by such systems as AEB (autonomous emergency braking), FCW (forward collision warning), LDW (lane departure warning), LCA (lane change assist), BSD (blind spot detection), SLIF (speed limit information function), IHBC (Intelligent High Beam Control) and EPB (electrical park brake), etc.

The third is a 1.8-litre turbocharged engine that churns out a maximum power of 135kW and peak torque of 300 N·m, paired with a 6-speed automatic manual transmission.
