Up front, there is Geely’s signature concentric grille design and sweptback headlights as seen earlier in the leaked images, however there is a new chrome grille border that also goes around the headlights. Beneath these sit a trio of aggressive air intakes.

Along the sides, there is a prominent front fender bulge that bleeds into the scalloped flanks, while blacked-out D-pillars and a C-pillar kink, similar in design to the larger Boyue, give a “floating roof” appearance. The rear possesses trapezoidal tail lights with sweeping light guides, broad chrome trim that joins the lamp units together, a large slotted spoiler and twin integrated exhaust exits.

The interior ditches Geely’s usual gently-curving dashboard design for something that’s a little more angular. The horizontal dashboard features rectangular air vents and a freestanding widescreen display, while a passenger grab handle sweeps around the climate controls. There’s also a digital instrument display like on the Boyue, plus a flat-bottomed steering wheel and a stubby electronic gear lever.

The Geely SX11 measures 4,330 mm long, 1,800 mm wide and 1,609 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,600 mm and will ride on Geely’s new B-segment Modular Architecture (BMA). In comparison,the SX11 is slightly longer, wider and taller than the Honda HR-V (Vezel), nearly matching the latter’s wheelbase, which sits at 2610 mm.

Furthermore a PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) version called as the SX11P will also be made available as a production-ready was seen in the factory premises.
