Geely's limited edition MK2 here
LEATHER INTERIOR FOR UNDER R110K?: Geely hopes to attract buyers by adding loads of kit at a budget-friendly price to its new MK2 Limited. Above shows the leather interior (inset) and new alloy wheels.
Geely South Africa has launched a limited-edition version of its MK2 hatchback for South Africa with more kit, leather upholstery and a tweaked suspension - the MK2 1.5 GL Limited
Henri Meistre, MD of Geely SA, said: “The MK2 was specifically upgraded for the South African market and is in high demand as we were only assigned a limited number of these outstanding value-for-money offerings.
“Our products are fast becoming better – better performance, better safety and, most of all, better value for money.”
The MK2 Limited builds on the standard model with a leather interior, sport-tuned exhaust, lowered suspension and vinyl decals.
The MK2 Limited is powered by a 1.5 petrol engine capable of 69kW/128Nm, coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox. Fuel consumption is listed as 7.3 litres/100km.
Standard kit includes
• Power-assisted steering
• Anti-lock brakes with electronic pressure distribution
• Power windows and locking
• Radio/CD player with MP3/USB ports
• Alloy rims
• Driver's air bag
• Reversing radar
All Geely models can be bought with a service plan covering two years or 60 000km, three years or 90 000km or four years or 120 000km. The MK2 Limited comes with a three-year or 100 000km warranty and AA roadside assistance.
Geely will open a research and development centre at its head office in Midrand, Gauteng. The centre will provide support and training for Geely personnel as well as develop SA-specific products.
