Geely Philippines has officially taken the wraps off the 2021 Geely Okavango. The Okavango is the Chinese automaker's first stab at one of the most crowded segments in the local market―the class of midsize seven-seat high-riders.
Geely aims to shake things up in its class by offering the 2021 Okavango that sports not only highly functional features but also boasts aesthetics that's both modern and exquisite.
In the design department, the 2021 Geely Okavango comes with a fascia that is neatly executed. Its "Cosmic Recall" front grille is the obvious highlight, with each of its sides adorned with LED headlights. It should be noted that the Okavango is the first from the firm to be equipped with fog lights, which also come in LEDs.
For its side profile, the 2021 Geely Okavango has well-planted lines, all exhibiting a formation that's sleek and sinewy. Also notable is the consistent plastic cladding that is placed on its sides. An application of chrome can also be seen; this is also present on the window seals, handles, and the ones below each door.
Meanwhile, the seven-seat crossover's side repeaters are situated on the side mirrors. Its roof rails, on the other hand, are made exclusively on the top-tier Urban variety.
The 2021 Geely Okavango either comes with 17 inches with 215/60 tires for the Comfort trim, while the Urban edition features 18 inches with 225/55.
As you'd come to expect from Geely, the 2021 Okavango is also equipped with a high-profile interior. As it is, its overall layout highlights a silver garnish and piano black accents splashed across the dashboard and door sidings.
Another hallmark in the interior of the 2021 Geely Okavango is its start-stop button which is shaped quite interestingly in square, an altogether unique approach.
At the center of the dashboard, the 2021 Geely Okavango has an enormous 10.25-inch infotainment system. For some odd reason, Geely still hasn't equipped the vehicle with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capabilities. Nevertheless, it comes with QDLink.
The Comfort trim of the seven-seater crossover features a four-speaker system, while the Urban version has an eight-speaker setup.
Some of the standard safety features of the 2021 Geely Okavango are ABS with EBD, dual-front airbags, hill descent control, hill start assist, and immobilizer, among others.
The 2021 Geely Okavango is powered by a 1.5-liter three cylinder engine, combined with a 48-volt electric motor. It has a combined figure of 190hp and 300Nm of torque. Its power is then sent to the front wheel; there's no four-wheel-drive option.
The 2021 Geely Okavango comes with a starting price tag of PHP 1,208,000 (Comfort trim), while the Urban variant will cost PHP 1,328,000. Both versions retail in four colorways―Storm Grey, Porcelain White, Luna Silver, and Marble Black.
