We want to note that creating a novelty, stylish, compact urban hatchback, stylized for the crossover Gili Vision X3, Chinese experts did not reinvent the wheel, but went along the simple path. The small crossover hatchback was based on the upgraded platform of the Geely Englon SC5-RV (Geely GC5) model , and the new Geely Vision X3 engine was taken from the platform’s donor: the gasoline atmospheric “four” JLB-4G15 Getec DVVT, aggregated with 5 manual transmissions, or with Available as an option with a 4-speed automatic. The body and interior of the car, of course, original, stylish and modern. Let’s say more, the exterior design of the body of the new city Chinese pseudo crossover is bright, catchy and charismatic, and the interior is cozy, with a solid set of advanced equipment. In a word, what is needed for the Chinese consumer: a flashy appearance, a cozy interior with a mass of modern chips … well, a technician – who knows what engine under the hood.
Externally, the new subcompact crossover Geely Vision X3 is very similar to its brother Geely Vision X1, which is claimed by the Chinese manufacturer as an entry-level crossover, and looks more solid. Interestingly, the company Geely Motors plans to completely abandon the release of conventional hatchbacks in favor of cars stylized for crossovers.
The body of the Gili Vision X3 demonstrates the new corporate identity of the Geely brand with a powerful front body formed by a neat falshradiator grille and compact headlights with LED strokes, a solid bumper with a large central air intake and side vertical slots in the air ducts that house LED waterfalls.
In the profile, the compact city crossover looks no less stylish. In the presence of a solid-sized hood, large wheel arches with powerful vyshtampovkami, bright and charismatic rib on the door, high rising to the stern of the window line, gently flowing to the stern roof. The subcompact SUV is equipped with large 16-inch wheels (alloy wheels R16 with original design and 205/60 R16 tires), adding auto solidity.
The forage of the Chinese novelty flaunts in part with LED headlamps, a compact tailgate with glass, topped by a spoiler with an additional LED brake light and a burger with original pseudowire inserts and a diffuser.
It only remains to add that the lower parts of the body of the raised hatchback are carefully covered with plastic overlays in the manner of crossovers.

A melody of catchy appearance is found in the salon of a new subcompact urban crossover from the Middle Kingdom. The interior is modern, stylish and fashionable with quality materials of finish and neat assembly, despite the fact that the car is budget.

In the second row there is not much room, as in front, but thanks to the rather tall body and the highly installed cushion of the rear seats, it is comfortable for people with a height of 180 cm. Head is enough, and the width of the cabin in the back allows you to sit on the seat of three.
The dimensions and useful volume of the luggage compartment Geely Vision X3, of course, modest. And what can you want from the trunk of a car with a body length of 4 meters. The trunk width is 990 mm, the maximum height is 860 mm, the length, depending on the position of the split rear seatback, is from 680 to 1440 mm.
