The 2021 Geely Okavango is the newest and biggest addition to the local lineup of Geely Philippines. It is a 7-seater midsize MPV that is feature-packed and comes with a competitive price point. As a newcomer to the 7-seater segment, the Okavango named after the river in Africa itself has a lot to prove. With that said here is what you need to know about the all-new Geely Okavango.
A mild-hybrid powertrain across the lineup
Geely Philippines has done something interesting with the Geely Okavango as it has released it with an all mild-hybrid lineup. Under the hood, the 7-seater midsize MPV is powered by a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder motor that is mated to a 48-volt hybrid system. Together it produces 190hp and 300 Nm of torque. While this may seem like the same hybrid powertrain that is put into its brother the Geely Azkarra it has been upgraded to produce more power. Unlike conventional hybrid vehicles that utilize a CVT, Geely has chosen to go with a 7-speed wet dual-clutch transmission itself. It sends power exclusively to the front wheels similar to other hybrids available in the market.
LEDs all around
With its competitive price point, Geely Philippines has equipped the Geely Okavango well as there are no halogen projector headlights in sight. The automaker has standardized LED lighting elements for all of the two available variants that it has on sale in the local automotive market. However, it is important to note that the Comfort variant does not come with auto headlamp controls. But aside from that the model’s lighting elements are standard across the board.
It has 3-zone climate control as standard
A feature normally reserved for higher end vehicles, the Geely Okavango now has it as standard for all of its models. This not only adds to the premium feel of the 7-seater but allows for the driver, front passenger, and passengers at the rear to all have their desired temperatures. A great feature to have especially for a vehicle of its competitive price point.
A 10.25-inch infotainment system as standard
Another standard feature across its lineup that the Geely Okavango has is a 10.25-inch infotainment system. The massive touchscreen system comes equipped with QD Link which is present in all variants. This lets the owner screen mirror their smartphone to the headunit. It is important to note that the QD Link system functions differently from the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto screen mirroring applications seen on different vehicles. The infotainment system does have Bluetooth and USB connectivity, which are still great features to have. The headunit will also function as the screen for your reverse camera as well as for the 360-degree camera found in the Urban variant.
Variants and pricing
Geely Philippines has brought the Okavango in with just two variants, the Comfort and the Urban model. The Comfort model serves as the entry-level variant which comes with a retail price of P1,208,000. While the Urban trim level comes with a retail price of P1,328,000. Both variants come with the same 1.5-liter mild hybrid powerplant and with the same 7-speed wet dual clutch transmission.
If you’re looking for a with a lot of features between its models as standard then the 7-seater Geely Okavango is definitely worth putting on your list.
