That said, the Geely Okavango has a few tricks up its sleeve. Not only can it comfortably seat seven, but this model’s seats can be configured in 19 different ways.
With all the rear seats folded down, the Okavango can also provide a pretty substantial maximum cargo capacity of 2,050-liters. This vehicle also comes with a three-zone air-conditioning system with independent controls.
Look at all that space
According to a report by Autoindustriya.com, the 2021 Okavango will have two variants, Comfort and Urban. Looking at the specs, both variants are well equipped. The top-spec Urban variant comes with six airbags, leather-clad power-adjustable seats, eight speakers, and a 360-degree panoramic camera.
It also has auto headlamp control, and electronically folding side mirrors. On the other hand, the entry-level variant comes with dual-front airbags, a reverse camera, fabric seats with manual adjustment, and only four speakers.
Both variants, however, come standard with a 10.25-inch touchscreen with QD link, hill descent assist, hill-start assist, tire pressure monitoring, LED headlamps, LED fog lamps, and an electronic parking brake.
The Okavango's modern-looking cockpit
The Okavango is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder gasoline engine that’s paired with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. The said powerplant is paired with a dual-clutch automatic transmission, and it can make up to 190 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque.
Of note, the Okavango comes with the same engine as the one seen in the Geely Azkarra, which is Geely’s challenger in the five-seater compact crossover segment.
