The manufacturers can be pride not only of the exterior, but also the interior, as they promise the “real European premium quality.” The Geely’s interior will be presented by a remarkable center console that looks like in Porsche cars a stylish visor over the instrument panel and a wide grip on the front panel, which is integrated in the display of multimedia system. The list of equipment of the crossover will satisfy owners. Maybe, it is due to the close cooperation Geely with Volvo. First, the model will be sold on the domestic market, but in the future car makers think about its export to other countries.
