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.
