Shanghai Englon MK (Geely King Kong- Jingang)

Reminds me of the recently released Saturn Aura for some reason ?

Geely LG-1

Geely Automobile, one of the most rapidly developing Chinese car manufacturer introduced its more upmarket LG-1 recently.

The car, which is officially named Geely LG-1 King Kong has been developed with assistance from Korean and Italian companies. Geely claims there were over 1000 engineers from China and abroad summoned for the project.

There are three engine variations: 1.5-, 1.6- and 1.8-liter. Key dimensions are: wheelbase: 2502 mm (98.5-in.), length/width/height: 4342/1692/1435 mm (170.9/66.6/56.5-in.).

LG-1 King Kong will be priced between RMB 70,000-90,000

The headlights are really waaaaay too big

Admin 04-25-2006 05:32 PM

it only looks like that from the front i think

Anyone knows if THIS is the car coming to the US in 08? If not, which one?

(Please NOT the one shown in Detroit...)

I can totally see this car succeed if this is the one coming to the US.

Geely, if you're listening, equip it with the following, standard:

- Side curtain airbags, front and side airbags (total of 6 airbags), 4 wheel disc ABS (to address the #1 concern when people buy cars, SAFETY)

- 10 year warranty on powertrain, 5 year bumper to bumper, 3 year free full maintenance, 10 year free oil change, 5 year free road side assitance (to address the #2 concern, quality/reliability)

- Comfort and conveniences can be optional. People like to have them, but they're not a "concern" per se.

Now keep that starting price under 10K and you have a true winner!!! With gas prices these days, I'd buy one in a heartbeat to commute and run errands.

If not, which one?
CK7151 running on 1999 Daewoo Lanos chassis.

But I heard the price will be less than 70000 Yuan. I think Geely will meet difficulties to sell it at such a high price, I mean if it will be priced 70000-90000.

looks like an owl

Vitesse 05-08-2006 05:23 PM

It's a Chevy Aveo/Daewoo Kalos/Daewoo Gentra/Pontiac G3 in new clothes, presumably with new engines too, since I don't think there's a 1.8 liter Kalos/Aveo/Gentra.

I think most Americans would see an Aveo as a better bet. I can't imagine that the CK would be preferable to this, however.

The style on the Saturn Aura actually comes straight from the Vauxhall/Opel Vectra from Europe. The Vectra has been around much longer then the Aura.

starex 05-12-2006 06:17 AM

Front itīs similar to the new Opel Vectra....

Vitesse 05-12-2006 10:21 AM

The Vectra platform also underpins the Saab 9-3, Chevrolet Malibu, and Pontiac G6, which are all sold here in the US.

It doesn't surprise me that Saturn restyled a Vectra for it's flagship, since the departing L-series Saturn was a revised MkII Vectra. The new Aura is quite a bit nicer than the outgoing L.

Just this week GM announced that the Astra will replace the unloved Saturn Ion for 2007. The Ion, which rides an earlier version of the Chevy Cobalt Delta platform, has been a big fat dud all around. We'll be better off with the Astra.

yes, when viewed from the rear the headlights are not obtrusive at all.......

gr8 05-22-2006 11:42 PM

big head and tail lights for a little car dosnt seem to work in my point of view, cars like the caravan and odyssey where the car is big and lights are big would actually work.

LG-1 quality

Interior looks nice and shows progress on quality but some quality flaws remain.

Geely MK (King Kong)

i have to say taht thats one of the best geely i ever seen

phaeton 09-09-2006 02:41 AM

Best looking Geely I've seen, I like the Opel Astra front :) , the rear is original in design I like it to.

Scarbir 09-12-2006 09:16 AM

Wow, the interiour doesn't fit the exteriour at all, but it's that unique I really like it.

cryptonx 09-14-2006 04:46 AM

you got that right

but this is by far the most serious attempt of geely to make a " car " :D
I think they were going for an EUROPEAN style car here .

Txus 02-06-2007 10:15 PM

in Costa Rica, Central America we are waiting for that car!!!!

chinacartimes 02-07-2007 04:14 AM

Thats the Geely King Kong!

First Class 02-07-2007 04:47 PM

I dont like the instruments sitting in the middle. Never understood why Renault or Nissan did that on some cars.

sir wellington 02-20-2007 12:30 AM

hurry here
with designs such as this geely i am truly waiting impatiently for a dealership to be established in jamaica; so that our current japanese brands will take their expensive hooks out of the common man. affordability with a touch of class. I love china!

Variodical 08-08-2007 10:37 AM

The side profile and dashboard looks like a Toyota Vios.

thetycho 08-09-2007 02:43 AM

The car looks a lot better than most Geely's, but the interior still needs a lot of work.

+1 The interior colors are a little "unique" though.

Rally Red Lancer GTS 08-22-2007 12:27 PM

The Geely MK looks decent on the outside and even the interior. I am surprised to see the dash controls in the middle. Like the Scion xA or xB.

ali-khierbeck 08-24-2007 02:42 PM

xavier22 10-03-2007 02:36 PM

very nice!!!!!!

The Great Wall 10-18-2007 10:30 AM

This is one very attractive midsize sedan by Geely. I really like the funky interior and the front end treatment.

ash 10-18-2007 05:23 PM

welcome to chinacarforums the great guessing you like geely more than GWM?

The Great Wall 10-18-2007 08:30 PM

I like both equally, but I do like other Chinese Manufacturers. Thanks for the welcome.

CCF mod 10-21-2007 05:21 AM

It seems that Geely is preparing hatchback version of King Kong:

It looks uglier than sedan to me.

Kager82 10-21-2007 11:45 AM

Comments on MK
I've just viewed MK today (at Singapore). Not too impressive if compared to other makes...

But if one were to compare it with its previous model the CK, one will find that it is an extreme make-over. However, I still couldn't get over the fact that the interior really feels like a toy car. :(

vitordavid 10-22-2007 12:51 PM

The back from this hatchback looks like a defective vw golf

CCF mod 12-26-2007 12:15 PM

More pictures of MK's interior.
