International Motor Trading Agency launched the new Geely Emgrand GT in April last year.

Awarded China car of the year in 2016, the vehicle is available as a 2.4-litre and 3.5-litre V6 sedan at the Geely showroom in Tubli.

Boasting a futuristic design and powerful engine, the 2.4L produces 119kw (161.8ps) and the 3.5L V6 produces 180kw (244HP) of power.

The Geely Emgrand GT offers many features such as a push button, panoramic sunroof, auto hold, eco and sports mode, leather seats, cruise control, visual parking system and much more.

It is a key model of Geely Auto’s new brand strategy.

Combining eastern and western philosophy, innovative Geely caters to the market and integrated global resources to build this sophisticated and sporty vehicle.

It’s also the most premium and luxurious model of Geely.

The Geely Emgrand GT will once more show China’s beauty and manufacturing strength to the world.

When the vehicle won China Car of the Year award for 2016, it beat major international rivals.

All 140 cars that entered the competition underwent road tests from October 2014 to September 2015, with three rounds of voting to eliminate contenders.

The first-placed Emgrand GT scored a total of 104 points, the Daimler Maybach S-Class came in second with 61 points and the Jaguar XE came in third with 55 points. It marked the first time a Chinese vehicle had been entered into the competition.

The China Car of the Year award was established in 2012 by a group of Chinese media in partnership with public relations consultancy Prime Research.

The 2016 panel was made up of 22 chief editors, chief executive officers and chairmen of major Chinese automotive media, including Car Owners, Auto Fan and the Chinese edition of Car Magazine.

“The Emgrand GT is the first Chinese branded vehicle to enter into the China Car of the Year competition and it shows that Chinese brands are improving rapidly,” said a media panellist.

“By working with international talent, Geely Auto is producing increasingly competitive cars.

“The Geely Emgrand GT left a strong impression in testing on the judges, in terms of design, engineering and handling.”

Geely Auto senior vice-president Peter Horbury designed the Emgrand GT, which features a fast back style and an impressive body at 4,956mm long, which is not only on par with the luxury coupés but also initiates a sporty, aesthetic and creative journey.
