Here’s a closer look of the Geely Jia Ji MPV, 1.5L PHEV 258 hp & 385 Nm


The Geely Jia Ji is the Chinese carmaker’s first MPV and here we have a closer look at the people carrier’s rear profile.

Like the front, the rear of the Jia Ji is aesthetically pleasing with LED taillamps, chrome trim with GEELY wording across the tailgate, neat bumpers and hidden exhaust outlets. Unlike the traditional “box on wheels” design, the Jia Ji is a fresh and stylish interpretation of an MPV.

Inside the Jia Ji, passengers are presented with a full LCD instrument cluster, 12.3-inch floating widescreen infotainment panel and a double deck centre console that houses the main controls, electronic gear selector, roof mounted controls with motion activated ceiling light, ambient lighting, intelligent cup-holder with cooling and heating function, panoramic sunroof and a touch panel control for the rear climate control.

The Jia Ji is available in either a six- or seven-seater configuration with three seating options: 2+2+2, 2+2+3 or 2+3+2. Geely says this will ensure that the new MPV meets all family mobility requirements.

At launch, the Jia Ji is powered by three powertrain options – 1.5-litre turbocharged mild-hybrid (MHEV) with 190 hp/300 Nm, 1.5-litre plug-in hybrid with 258 hp/385 Nm or 1.8-litre turbo petrol with 183 hp/300 Nm. The electrified powertrains are paired to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission while the 1.8-litre TGDi gets a conventional six-speed automatic.

Considering how well received the Proton X70 is, do you think it’s time Proton replaces the aging Exora with a car based on the Jia Ji?
