Said Chinese crossover, which will soon blow up the Russian market

Chinese companies are unanimously attacking the Russian market. Brands growing in sales during the crisis are Chinese, with rare exceptions. And in the near future, Russia is waiting for several more high-profile premieres from the Middle Kingdom, which, it seems, will change the domestic car market once and for all. Yuri Timkin studies these emerging novelties in detail in his material, telling in particular about Geely Monjaro.

So far, Monjaro’s latest flagship, known in China as the KX11, is following the path of the super-successful Coolray in Russia: like the compact cross, the mid-sized SUV experienced the Russian winter through climate testing last winter in Surgut. Will success be the same? It may very well be so.

After all, Monjaro is based on the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) platform, which has built up a good reputation for the Tugella coupĂ© crossover. But Monjaro is slightly larger: body length is 4770 mm, width is 1895 mm, height is 1689 mm. For example, Skoda Kodiaq and Kia Sorento fall into the same size class. Admittedly, the ‘Chinese’ do not have a major asset, the third row of seats.

But he has something to hide! Geely Monjaro will be the first car on the Russian market with a media system screen that extends from the steering column to the right door. This solution looks really cool, but we’ll see how it works soon. The power source is also interesting: a 2-liter turbo engine with an efficiency of 238 hp, coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
