Geely Monjaro launched in the UAE
AGMC, the official distributor of Geely vehicles in the UAE, has launched Monjaro, the flagship SUV from Geely Auto based on the advanced Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), offering safety, performance, intelligence, and efficiency at an affordable price.
The most advanced SUV ever to be launched by Geely Auto, the Monjaro is meticulously crafted and enhanced by industry-leading features such as the Highway Assisted Driving that actively monitors the vehicle’s surroundings and autonomously changes lanes, and 540-degree Surround View, while the powerful, yet efficient 4-cylinder, 2.0-litre turbo engine generates 235hp and 350Nm of torque through an 8-speed automatic transmission.
To mark the occasion, an exclusive special launch edition colour scheme was unveiled for the Monjaro, combining a stylish Matte Grey exterior with an elegant Caramel interior finish to add a new option to the Monjaro range, which is currently available under a launch offer starting from AED 123,900 for the Monjaro GK trim level, and AED 133,900 for the Monjaro GF trim. The range-topping GF+ is available for AED 138,900 and comes in two exclusive colours – Matte Grey and Turquoise Blue.
The launch offer also includes a three-year finance package at just 0.99%, free registration and window tinting, a five-year or 100,000km service contract, and a five-year or 150,000km warranty.
Commenting on the launch, Dr Andreas Schaaf, CEO – New Ventures at Albatha Automotive, said: “We are thrilled to bring the all-new Monjaro, a world-class SUV packed with the latest technology, security, design and entertainment features, to our customers in the United Arab Emirates at a very affordable price positioning.
“While offering advanced technologies and luxurious features, the Monjaro doesn’t forget its DNA as a sports utility vehicle, with a wide wheel track, long wheelbase, AWD, spacious interior and cargo space which establish Monjaro as practical, reliable, and ready for adventure. This is a vehicle at home on both the streets of the UAE’s urban cityscapes and its beautiful natural landscapes. Bold, tough and super refined, our flagship model Monjaro sets new benchmarks in the UAE for breathtaking design, premium materials, superior quality and advanced technology features.”
Sitting on the sophisticated CMA platform, the Monjaro is designed with strong proportions; a wide 1610 mm wheel track and a long 2845 mm wheelbase, resulting in both a strong presence and an expansive interior.
Custom suede is present throughout the interior, giving occupants a subtle hint of luxury. Weaving in the seats incorporates Chinese elements like classical knots, adding an element of refinement to the details.
A panoramic and integrated cockpit space with three screens offers a visually immersive environment integrating intelligent human-machine interaction to offer the best experience for drivers and passengers.
For audiophiles, the Monjaro comes with a powerful 10-speaker high-performance BOSE premium sound system which is combined with engine harmonic noise reduction technology and double-layered soundproofing to give passengers the acoustic ambience of a symphony concert hall.
The Monjaro gets a customizable interior lighting scheme that changes according to the driving mode.
Geely Monjaro drivers can also enjoy improved off-road performance thanks to BorgWarner’s sixth-generation four-wheel-drive system, which makes a 50:50 front/rear torque distribution possible. Users can switch between several driving modes to suit their needs, including an energy-efficient ECO mode, refined NORM mode, speedy SPORT mode, reliable SNOW mode, and a powerful OFFROAD mode.
The Monjaro is powered by Volvo and Geely’s jointly developed 2.0-litre turbo direct injection engine with a maximum output of 235hp and 350 Nm of torque, matched with an Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission to match the car’s solid looks with equally solid performance credentials – it is capable of a 0-100km/h acceleration in just 7.7 seconds.
In addition, an advanced sensor suite offers Highway Assisted Driving, which actively monitors the Monjaro’s surroundings, autonomously changes lanes, and moves a safe distance away from large vehicles when needed. Drivers can also direct the Monjaro to autonomously change lanes simply by signalling.
Safety features of the Geely Monjaro include blind spot and forward collision warning, emergency stopper, central glass darkening, ABS brakes and ISOFIX baby seats. The Geely Monjaro also features a 540° Transparent Chassis, which helps monitor complex conditions underneath the chassis for added confidence during tricky driving situations.
