Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP) is set to unveil its latest offering, the Geely Okavango.
At the heart of Geely’s 7-seater crossover is a 1.5L turbo engine that produces 190 hp and 300Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed wet-type dual clutch transmission.
Apart from Okavango’s muscular aesthetic design, its vast interior space has a total of 19-seat configurations, 42 storage nooks, and compartments including a double-layer console. All adults can seat comfortably in all three rows.
Some of the safety features of the Okavango includes six SRS Airbags, overspeed warning, electronic stability control, hill start assist, central locking with speed-sensing auto lock, and hill descent control.
SGAP will start the pre-sale of the Geely Okavango on October 17. For those who will reserve early, they will receive significant savings of as much as P90,000. On top of this pre-order savings, SGAP will also pour in a worry-free ownership with a 3-year periodic maintenance package which includes oil, parts and labor only to those who will reserve and purchase during the pre-selling period.
“The Geely Okavango is the coming together of the best features of an SUV and an MPV into a single 7-seater crossover,” SGAP president & CEO Mikihisa Takayama said. “The Okavango is definitely a game changer for both the SUV and MPV segments – exquisite and well thought off in terms of design, space, and technology.”
“We are definitely giving our customers a luxurious, uncompromising, and “Wonderfully Distinct” ride”, Takayama added.
SGAP said that Okavango’s name was derived from the northwestern Botswana’s vast inland delta, Okavango Delta. In 2014, UNESCO has recognized the Okavango Delta as its 1,000th World Heritage Site. It was also declared as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Africa.
