Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Geely Auto announced on July 8 its first CMA (Compact Modular Architecture)-based sedan model is dubbed “PREFACE” in English and unveiled the teaser photos at the same time.
The company touted the “PREFACE” as its first CMA-based wide-body upper medium sedan. The unveiling of the yet-to-be-launched model came after Geely announced in early June that it had entered the “4.0 comprehensive architecture car-building era” from the “3.0 boutique car era”.
The automaker said the advent of the “PREFACE” will prove that the CMA car-building system has become one of Geely's core weapons to be deeply engaged in the global “value competition” in the new era.
The “PRAFEC” remains faithful to the cognominal concept model unveiled at the Auto Shanghai 2019, said Geely. Thus, taking the concept as reference, the new sedan model is in all likelihood to develop Geely Auto's “expanding cosmos” design language, featuring at the front a shield-shaped grille embedded with waterfall-typed grille inside and a pair of slim headlights.
Designed in a generous proportion, the car body carries a wide wheel track and balanced wheel to wheel arch relationship, rendering both muscular shoulders and powerful fenders.
At the rear, the taillights are connected by a slender chrome-plate trim, further accentuating the car's width.
According to the data submitted to the MIIT, the PREFACE measures 4,785mm long, 1,869mm wide and 1,469mm tall, and has a wheelbase of 2,800mm. Thanks to the flexible scalability of the CMA platform, the actual car width and wheel track of the PREFACE are above the level of most mid-sized premium sedan models.
Powering the new vehicle would be a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that is good for up to 190hp (photo source: Geely Auto).
