Em­grand X7 Sport, Em­grand GT change per­cep­tion of Chi­nese cars in Oman mar­ket

Muscat Daily - - AUTO NEWS -

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.

Ex­te­ri­ors

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.

In­te­ri­ors

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.

A spokesper­son from TAC, the sole dis­trib­u­tor of the Geely range in Oman, said, “Geely de­sign­ers are now build­ing cars that are eco­nom­i­cal, en­vi­ron­ment-friendly and en­ergy ef­fi­cient. The pos­i­tive re­sponses we re­ceived from the me­dia in Oman were price­less. This was ex­actly what we were look­ing for. The Em­grand X7 Sport has fea­tures that are at par with high­end lux­ury cars. It is more eco­nom­i­cal in a va­ri­ety of spheres such as cost, fuel-ef­fi­ciency and main­te­nance.”

TAC, the lead­ing automotive dis­trib­u­tors in Oman and the re­gion, is the sole dis­trib­u­tor of Geely range in Oman. By bring­ing the Geely range to Oman, TAC has re­in­forced its com­mit­ment to high-qual­ity prod­ucts and ser­vices for its cus­tomers.
