Emgrand X7 Sport, Emgrand GT change perception of Chinese cars in Oman market
Stylish, smooth, safe and loaded with features, yet does not burn your pocket, that’s like having the best of both worlds. Gaining widespread popularity across Oman, Geely has been witnessing steady growth over the last five years since the launch of the very first Geely by Towell Auto Centre (TAC).
With a whopping rise in sales of Geely’s first major SUV in the nation, Geely Emgrand X7 Sport is quickly amassing a great reputation among car enthusiasts and ready to buy customers in Oman. The Emgrand X7 Sport is Geely’s new generation of SUV, just like the GT SuperSedan launched last year, and both these cars are a testament of the Geely commitment and unrelenting spirit to create worldclass cars that are beautiful and best in quality, without burning your pocket.
Designed in Gothenburg, tuned in the UK by MIRA, the company which tunes F1 cars for uncompromising rides and handling and protected by the latest passive safety system from Bosch, both models embody a design language inspired by Peter Horbury and his global Geely design team based in California, Barcelona and Shanghai.

The smooth-shifting transmission and the soft sprung suspen- sion help the X7 Sport glide over bumps and road irregularities with a great composure. Extensive work by MIRA, the global vehicle engineering solutions expert, keeps noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels well below the acceptable range. The MacPherson suspension upfront and the multi-link independent setup at the rear maintains traction on the tarmac. The all-wheel drive system helps the vehicle swing around corners quickly while maintaining composure around high-speed sweepers.
The X7 Sport has well balanced proportions with some nice detailing. It is an obvious example of how the company expertise has increased since this partnership considering the design approach, exterior and interior appeal and body built quality.
The SUV is developed around the concept of a speeding cheetah, creating a strong visual impact and developing a strong sense around the Emgrand X7 Sport. The 'Eagle Eye' styled headlights give it a sharp detailing that’s complete with a blackened base colour combined with a silver bowl. It has a nice stance with a trendy black D-pillar for the floating roof idea and sleek taillights. The large size double five-spoke wheel hub are designed in the shape of lightening with two tones.
Geely Emgrand X7 Sport has the perfect silhouette to compliment one of the finest interiors. The cabin is of extremely high quality and seats are spacious and comfortable, letting passengers enjoy a great view through the large panoramic sunroof. The threespoke leather multifunction steering wheel, TFT full colour 3D combination instrument and extended instrument panel have an elegant appearance. The central console arches from the front to the rear passenger area.
Powertrain and other specifications
Possibly among the best SUVs in its segment, the Emgrand X7 has a flat-bottom steering wheel and is equipped with a 2.4l inline four-cylinder, giving strong torque throughout the range. Generating 160hp and 210nm, it is mated to a smooth and responsive Six-Speed Tiptronic Automatic Gearbox. The new Emgrand X7 Sport is packed with safety technology that includes ABS, EBD, EBA, Cruise Control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Autohold, Visual Parking System etc, to name a few. The SUV is loaded with latest gizmos to make your drive experience comfortable.
