The Geely FY11 has yet to make its grand debut but the company has quietly released initial photos of the Coupe SUV onto its official website. No interior pictures nor technical details at the moment, but the exterior design is more than enough to whet our appetites.
Starting from the front, the brand’s signature expanding cosmos grille is now sharper than ever with a subtle red accent around the grille. There is also a chrome accent below the headlamp and grille housing that further highlights the cars strong stance. The side intake elements were derived from the BoYue (Proton X70) that double ups as an air curtain to help with aerodynamics.
The side profile of the FY11 features strong and purposeful lines to emphasise the car’s athletic nature while the tapering roofline meets the wide and chunky rear end. It is not easy to pen a coupe SUV – look at the GLC/GLE Coupe and you’ll know what I mean – but the FY11 is beautifully executed (on paper at least) with its bulk in all the right places. Can’t wait for a more detailed gallery of the car to surface.
We know that the FY11 will ride on the Geely-Volvo Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform, the first Geely model to adopt this platform. The CMA platform which promises dynamic handling prowess and best in class crash safety underpins the Volvo XC40 and all LYNK & CO models. Having experienced the dynamics of the XC40, the FY11 might be the most dynamic handling car to bear the Geely badge to date.
