Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP), the local distributor of Geely vehicles, recently conducted an overnight media drive to the north in its new Coolray subcompact SUV. Geely is the Chinese automaker which owns Volvo, Lotus, and the London Electric Vehicle Co., which now makes the iconic black London taxicabs.

Officials from Geely Auto International Corporation and SGAP joined the media participants over the two-day Coolray drive from Manila to Anvaya Resort in Bataan and back the next day.

At least 15 attendees from various media outfits joined an eight-vehicle convoy and embarked on the over 360-kilometer round-trip drive.

Members of the media pose with the Geely Coolray before departing from the Geely showroom on EDSA, Quezon City.

Driving to the destination, Geely challenged the participants to beat the Coolray Sport’s 15.5km/l average fuel consumption claim within the mix of city and highway driving. The winning car achieved a 16.4 km/l fuel mileage.

With this, SGAP vows to continuously offer value for money in its vehicles, making sure that customers would find more high-tech features in Geely vehicles, which are normally found on luxury European brands, but at an affordable price.

The Geely Coolray Sport retails for P1.198 million, which includes premium features like auto parking, state-of-the-art gasoline direct injection turbo engine and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and a 360-degree camera view — high-end features normally found in luxury cars.

The Coolray Sport variant was formally launched to the Philippine market last September. The flagship model was followed by two more affordable Coolray variants —  Comfort and Premium — that start at an affordable price of P970,000.

For 2020, Geely will be growing its nationwide dealership network as well as adding more models to complement the Coolray. The Geely showroom on 1016 EDSA in Quezon City is currently its sole showroom.
