Facelifted Geely Bo Yue Pro Gains “Super Brain,” Updated Engines And Styling

For those of you who are not that familiar with the Chinese car market, Geely has been selling the Bo Yue compact SUV there since 2016.

Also known as the Emgrand X7 Sport in South America, the Peter Horbury-designed SUV is one of Geely’s most successful models.

For its mid-life facelift, the Bo Yue receives a significant update that sees its name changed into Bo Yue Pro. Arriving in dealerships in the second half of this year, itgains the GKUI19 Geely Smart Ecosystem and China’s first independently developed dedicated vehicle chipset, the E01.

Thanks to these two additions, Geely says the Bo Yue Pro becomes its most “intelligent” SUV to date. The Chinese automaker describes the GKUI19 infotainment system powered by the E01 chipset as the “super brain” of the new SUV that will open the door to the 5G “Internet of Everything” era.

Along with the new hardware, the revamped SUV gets updated styling as well as more power. On the outside, the front fascia has been given a more aggressive look courtesy of the raised hood and larger, more pronounced “Expanding Cosmos” grille. The LED headlights are new, as is the bumper which now features larger air intakes.

At the rear, it features a new pair of three-dimensional LED taillights with a fresh signature, a chrome strip that now stretches towards the outer edges into the taillamps, and a bigger tailgate that allows easier access to the trunk.

Inside, the Bo Yue Pro sports a bigger central infotainment screen, a fully digital instrument panel, a redesigned center console with a new transmission lever, ambient lighting and new materials.

Power comes from an updated 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a new 1.5-liter linked to an Aisin 6-speed automatic gearbox. The 1.8-liter unit has been recalibrated from the previous version to offer a maximum output of 184 PS (181 hp) and a peak torque of 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) — up 15 Nm (11 lb-ft), while Geely says the new transmission helps cut fuel consumption by 1 liter/100 km.

As for the new 1.5-liter turbo-four, it was jointly developed by Geely and Volvo and delivers 177 PS (174 hp) and 255 Nm (188 lb-ft) of torque.
