Geely Azkarra 2020 Philippines: Overview

With its comeback to the Philippine market, Geely is on track to making a bigger splash this time around. From a teaser it dropped several months ago, the Geely has formally announced the next offering hybrid crossover: an all-wheel drive, mild hybrid crossover called the Geely Azkarra.

The Geely Coolray crossover is becoming increasingly popular with its array of high-tech features paired with affordable pricing. Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP), Geely's official Philippine distributor, is in the thick of expanding their dealer network within the next two years. The 2020 Azkarra is the company's next move, so let's see what this compact crossover can offer.

Understanding the mild-hybrid technology in the 2020 Geely Azkarr

Exterior-wise, the Azkarra looks like a bigger version of the Geely Coolray with a familiar silhouette and similar styling cues, although the beltline sits lower between the C and D pillars. Aside from the slightly different bumper, the biggest difference is a pair of LED headlights flanking the Expanding Cosmos grille.

Entering the cabin, the crossover comes standard with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control system, and a 12.3-inch touchscreen interface linked to eight speakers. It even one-ups the Coolray in offering aircon vents for second-row passengers.

Propelling the Azkarra forward is a 1.5-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder powerplant, capable of 174 horsepower and 255 Nm of torque. The entry-level Premium trim partners this with a six-speed automatic transmission that delivers power to the front wheels.

Meanwhile, the top-spec Luxury variant comes with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, all-wheel drive, and a 48-volt Electric Motor Synergy (EMS) that delivers mild hybrid capabilities, resulting in a combined total of 187 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque.      

The Azkarra comes with dual front, side, and curtain airbags. Traction control, stability control, hill start assist, hill descent control, and antilock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution round up the standard safety features.
