Mathematics is stubborn and ruthless. As soon as I used the example of Chery Tiggo 4 to voice the theorem about the infinite Chinese, who sooner or later will be able to make a normal car, as the proof came in time. Yes, this car was produced by another company, developed with the active participation of Volvo, and is assembled in general in Belarus. But the fact remains: Geely Coolray is the first Chinese car that does not cause Spanish shame

Geely Coolray 1.5 T DCT 1 289 999 - 1 499 999 ₽ Editor's Choice Options Flagship (150 hp), 1,499,999 ₽ Author rating: 4.5 out of 5 Pros

Not that this could not be assumed: when buying Volvo ten years ago, Geely founder Li Shufu was attracted not so much by the business potential of a small Scandinavian company as by its engineering competencies. And even if the Swedes failed to teach the Chinese how to make cars, it would be just right to admit that the "damned place" is not only Togliatti, but also the Celestial Empire. It seems to have worked out.

The main thing is to survive the first minutes of studying this thing. Aggressive body kit with a "carbon" splitter in the front and a "rally" wing on the trunk lid, four exhaust pipes with three (!) Cylinders under the hood, red calipers - did Coolray drive through the South Port market on its way to the dealerships? Also, the crooked official site is broadcasting strange things like this: "The new logo is inspired by the idea of ​​'True Self' and emphasizes the 'limitless possibilities' of the brand." That's exactly what it says!

Well, let's be a little lenient. The Geely brand will somehow figure it out with its website, and the cartoonish body kit will surely appeal to the young audience: really, why not the Audi RS Q3 at minimum salaries? Coolray is still not very suitable for the role of a family car, but more on that below. In the meantime, let's pay attention to the fact that the design itself turned out to be okay, but in details like the complex plastic of the sidewalls with sharp edges of stampings - even interesting. And let's find out what else is interesting for the top version of Flagship Sport (yeah, in Cyrillic) for 1,499,999 rubles.

Interior

Recently, the Chinese have become pretty adept at this issue, and the new Geely is only developing a trend. But how! We are dealing with a direct competitor to new market heroes like KiSeltos and SkodKaroq, but Culray's salon easily outperforms them, and some crossovers from the older segment, for which you will have to pay half a million or a million more! "Chinese" pleases with non-trivial architecture (okay, in some places imitating Porsche) and unprecedented attention to detail in this class. That there is at least a corporate ornament in the form of a stylized letter "G", which adorns the "tweeters" in the corners of the doors, steering column levers, rubber mats in niches and so on.

And the selection of materials is even royal for a car sold for the present one and a half million rubles. The abundance of appropriate "silver" (better than the fashionable "piano lacquer"), contrasting leatherette throughout the cabin, and most importantly - soft here almost everywhere: both on the front panel and in the upper part of the door cards. Even the back ones, on which everyone is always saving!

Combine that with backlighting that shines right through the silver trims at night, and a neat and sturdy build, and you have a setting that is far from simple or budget. Even with serious prejudices regarding the "Chinese", as in my case. However, even without prejudice, one cannot fail to notice several ergonomic jambs.

The interior has enough quotes from Porsche and Audi, but in the aggregate, everything looks stylish and quite distinctive. Is it possible to get the same thing, only without the red inserts? Not if you want the ultimate package. And yes - if you are ready to sacrifice some of the buns in exchange for a conservative black palette. However, in China, an option with brown inserts is also offered - maybe over time it will reach us

Beautiful sports seats have a good profile - perhaps this is the main news compared to Geely Atlas, where "broken" backs make you sit hunched over. In the two "upper" trim levels, the driver's seat is equipped with electric adjustments, but the lumbar support cannot be adjusted. And the head restraints tilted forward can only be moved up and down. In other words, there is a possibility that Coolray may not suit you personally

However, most drivers should be comfortable here: the geometry of the fit flawlessly, there are also enough adjustment ranges. It is noteworthy that the steering column is adjustable both in the angle of inclination and in the departure - for the "Chinese" this is still a rarity

The neat single-zone climate control unit is beautiful, but not very functional - for example, to change the direction of airflow or turn on the heating of the steering wheel and seats, you have to go into the multimedia system menu. The windshield is heated only in the rest area of ​​the "wipers"

Coolray even has an all-round vision system with a clear, detailed picture and a virtual "fly-around" of the car. Remember how we admired this thing in the BMW 7 Series some five years ago? So, meet her in a budget Chinese crossover. Progress, what are you doing

And here is a mulka, which we have not seen anywhere else: at low speeds, when the turn signal is turned on, Geely shows itself from the side, thus eliminating the "dead" zones. Witty and really comfortable in traffic jams and tight yards

The necessary button is found on the right steering wheel spoke, so in general, you can communicate with multimedia - if you get used to this strange algorithm. The steering wheel itself is pretty and functional, albeit inappropriately cropped at the bottom. But this is what many sin today

The instrument cluster appears to be fully digital, but the display is relatively small at seven inches. Left and right - ordinary diode indicators, only they are disguised so elegantly that you can't guess right away

In sport mode, the panel is, so to speak, performed by Lexus: the speedometer and tachometer move to the left, like on the rare LFA supercar. Everything looks, of course, much simpler - but we have neither a supercar nor a Lexus here. The main thing is that the picture is pleasant, and everything is read without problems

Practicality

A rare father of a large family will walk around in rapper pants-pipes and with light green hair, and for the hard workers, dissecting on conditional Largus, this has not been noticed.So the informal "outfit" of Geely Coolray fully corresponds to its essence: the cargo capacity is very limited here, but everything is in order with the passenger. Well, so that you can go somewhere with a company light and happily hang out there.

The seats in the second row are simply heaped up - more, for example, than KiSeltos and SkodKaroq, which in wheelbase surpass Kulrey (2600 mm) by 30 and 38 millimeters, respectively. Chinese cars in this regard are often encouraging, and Geely was no exception. The central tunnel is absent as a class, so the third passenger is also quite welcome here

Rear passengers have a separate two-stage sofa heating and a USB port framed by the ubiquitous signature pattern. But ventilation deflectors are not provided - in climatic terms Coolray is rather stingy

The pockets in the rear doors hold a 1.5 liter bottle, but what is more pleasing here is that in terms of the quality of finishing, these door cards are in no way inferior to the front ones

Coolrey's power system is standard-sufficient, only it is inconvenient to use it: both USB connectors and the 12-volt outlet are hidden under the central tunnel, and you have approximately equal chances of both sticking the wire into the right socket and dislocating your arm. Not all Volvo solutions are worth copying - especially those that the Swedes have already abandoned

The central tunnel is generous not only with design chips, but also with riddles. Okay, everything is clear with the cup holders, and the niche to the left of them can be used, for example, for mobile phones - even "shovelphones" stand on the edge there. But why do we need another slot near the electromechanical "handbrake" selector?

No, not for cards or parking tickets! They have a place to the left of the steering wheel, under the adjustment of the instrument illumination, the headlight range control and the ESP key. And yes, G-pattern is used here too

And now about the bad news. The Geely trunk is 330 liters, which looks ridiculous even against the background of the cramped 468-liter (including underground) Seltos. Prefer to trust real measurements instead of numbers in tables? Please, the lonely red proof lies before you. Our two suitcases do not fit here either along, or across, or varskoryaku. Even if you press hard and swear loudly

At the same time, the trunk is finished better than that of Kia: instead of bare plastic on the sidewalls, there is a normal pile, and the side niches are taken away with fixing nets

In general, the Geely Coolray's trunk is quite neat, but definitely not cargo. And another confirmation of this is the fact that the manufacturer does not report the volume in a two-seater configuration at all. And also a huge corner, which is formed by the folded backs of the second row. Do not even think to carry refrigerators here until humanity comes up with the idea of ​​making them bent

Here it is, the moment of maximum intrigue: how did the "racing" body kit affect the geometry of the crossover? Well, an additional spoiler stole a couple of centimeters from the maximum height of the curb, which you can drive without pain. But pay attention to how low the plastic protection of the crankcase hangs: it does not look like a passport 190 mm clearance at all, right?

Technique and reliability

You must be wondering what is Chinese and what is Swedish. Let's put it this way: marketing is definitely Chinese. Take, for example, the modular CMA platform on which the Volvo XC40 crossover and the entire line of Lynk & Co, Geely's separate brand for millennials, are built. This "cart", according to official speeches, was developed jointly by Scandinavians and Asians - and the more recent BMA architecture, on which our Coolray is based, was entirely invented in the Middle Kingdom. But … using Volvo's expertise. Understand how you want.

Let's leave out the fact that sales of one XC40 are at the same level as all five Lynk & Co models combined - about 130 thousand cars annually - and focus on technology. Architecturally and ideologically, the "purely Chinese" BM is very similar to the "Chinese-Swedish" CM - except that instead of the rear multi-link, a semi-dependent beam is used here, and the wheelbase size varies from 2500 to 2700 millimeters. The CM is rated for a range of 2650 to 2850 mm, but the architecture of the front MacPherson strut and floor panels, for example, is much the same here. In other words, BM is the same CMA, only simpler and cheaper.

Under the hood is an uncontested 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbo engine, which has been installed on European versions of the XC40 since the end of 2018. True, there is a small game of forcing here: in Volvo this unit develops 156 horsepower, and for Geely Coolray, the output is increased to 177 “horses” - if we take Chinese and Belarusian specifications. In Russia, the power is reduced to the standard "tax" 150 forces, and this is reflected in the passport dynamics: acceleration to a hundred increased from 7.9 to 8.4 seconds. It is noteworthy that the engine is certified for AI-92 gasoline - there is a corresponding marking on the fuel filler flap. But whether there are many who dare to follow it is an open question. We didn’t dare: you never know …

After all, it is with reliability in the case of Culray that the greatest number of questions arise. The engine is not even two years old, the platform is completely fresh, and the transmission is a completely dark horse. The seven-speed "robot" with two "wet" clutches was developed in-house by Geely using foreign components - for example, from LuK, but no oracle can now predict its survivability. Will the daring crossover turn into scrap metal after 100-200-300 thousand kilometers, or will it remain a car? We have no idea. But now he is like a car.

Riding

Agree, up to this point, the story was quite consistent with the average Chinese car of recent years. Nice design, interesting electronic chips, smart interior, good second row, bad trunk, funny ergonomics mistakes … To one degree or another, all this can be said about modern Chery, Changan and at least the same Geely Atlas, which we had on the test in Last year. In statics, everything is tolerable, the pluses are more or less balanced by the minuses - but as soon as it comes to driving, every "Chinese" throws out something that makes all further conversations meaningless. It has always been this way, but now times have changed. Because Geely Coolray really rides well!

No, and not half as daring as it looks: barking with exhaust, throwing dust on the pursuers and disappearing behind the horizon - that's not about him. And the three-cylinder engine does not know how to bark at all. He buzzes frankly faded, but he knows his business - pulls confidently, does not sour after 120 kilometers per hour and almost does not annoy with "odd" vibrations.

Theorem Proven: Geely Coolray Detailed Test
Theorem Proven: Geely Coolray Detailed Test

The transmission is also trained in manners: in most cases, the "robot" acts logically and without jerks, although the DSG rate of fire here, perhaps, cannot be found. The character is closer to similar boxes, which are put on Hyundai and Ki- less fuss, more worries about clutches.But in general, the operating instructions are quite simple: we ride free in sports mode, we crawl through traffic jams as usual, we never touch "eco". And you will be happy.

But not a driver's one, no. In turns, Coolray is accurate and clear, the rolls are far from indecent - only the "Chinese" does not reward active driving at all. It slips the front wheels quite early and safely, but sadly slides into the outer trajectory - and something suggests that replacing the Nokian Velcro with a more tenacious summer will not affect the balance much. After all, in general, Geely's manners are very similar to the XC40, and genetics is a strong thing. She, apparently, explains the strange, unnatural effort on the steering wheel - although the rack itself is shorter here, and the steering wheel has to be rotated at smaller angles.

Theorem Proven: Geely Coolray Detailed Test

However, we have already seen tolerably turning "Chinese" - for example, the same Chery Tiggo 4, which does not hesitate to demand payment for it with your bones and teeth. Comfortable cars from the Middle Kingdom are a dime a dozen, but each of them, including the Geely Atlas, is driven no better than melted jelly. A Coolray really adequately balanced, and this is precisely the main revelation of the test.

The chassis here is pretty tight, but Geely does not allow itself hard blows - even the exposed seams on the Third Transport, which can make anyone lose face, it manages to transfer to the cabin in a rounded and not so painful. And in general, the power consumption is in full order here - despite the fact that the test copy is on large 18-inch disks. In general, the character of Culray resembles KiSeltos, but he has more safety margin, and less attention to detail. Who would expect this from a Chinese car?

Theorem Proven: Geely Coolray Detailed Test
Theorem Proven: Geely Coolray Detailed Test

There must, well, there must be at least one large joint that would ruin the overall picture! Maybe soundproofing? No, everything is fine with her too! Not great like SkodKaroq, but acceptable. As with the same Seltos - the main game is played by tires, and the rumble from them is definitely not annoying. But how much is all this joy worth?

Equipment

In Geely Coolray trim levels, there are three of them formally, but actually two and a half. The choice of engine and transmission is not provided at all, and the price list begins immediately with the loud word Laksheri - this is the name of the most modest version at the moment, for which they are asking 1,289,999 rubles.

The equipment here is far from poor: there is an electric handbrake, large multimedia, like on a test car, leatherette on the front panel and doors (seats, however, fabric and with mechanical adjustments), panoramic roof, climate control, a full range of heating, keyless access, rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera, cruise control, four airbags and automatic mode for all windows.

The next version is called Flagship, and you have to pay for it 1 449 999 rubles… The equipment actually copies what you see in the photos: full-LED headlights (Laksheri has a halogen), all-round visibility, front parking sensors, artificial leather on the seats, a car parker, a blind spot monitoring system, digital tidy, interior lighting, black ceiling, curtains safety - and, of course, the red interior trim.

Yet 50 thousand rubles from above - and you are the owner of the most top-end version of Flagship Sport. The differences are minimal: mirrors "carbon look", two-tone body paint, rear wing with a proud letter "S" - autochange suggests writing "Y", and this makes a certain sense. But whether it is necessary to pay extra for such tweets, we are not sure. Let's take a better look at where Geely Coolray is in relation to the competition.

Competitors

KiSeltos

Главный соперник Кулрея - неоднократно помянутый здесь Селтос, тоже делающий ставку на современные примочки и молодёжный имидж. Салон у Kiподешевле, мультимедийка покруче, а эргономика почти безупречна. Едут оба кроссовера похоже, а вот по гибкости комплектаций Seltos уходит в отрыв. Два атмосферных мотора на 121 и 149 л.с., 177-сильная «турбочетвёрка», выбор из механики, автомата и вариатора, передний и полный привод - и бешеный разброс цен от 1 119 900 до 1 999 900 рублей. Coolray попадает примерно в середину этого диапазона, и если сравнивать оснащение сопоставимых по цене версий, то оно у Geely и Kiбудет примерно одинаковым. Иными словами, если вам не нужен полноприводный Seltos «в максималке», есть смысл рассмотреть и «китайца»" style="width: 823px; margin-right: 8px;">

KiSeltos Kulrey's main rival is Seltos, who has been mentioned several times here, who also relies on modern gadgets and a youthful image. The Ki's salon is cheaper, the multimedia is cooler, and the ergonomics are almost flawless. Both crossovers ride similarly, but the flexibility of the Seltos trim levels is ahead of the curve. Two naturally aspirated engines for 121 and 149 hp, a 177-strong "turbo four", a choice of mechanics, automatic and variator, front and four-wheel drive - and a frenzied price range from 1,119,900 to 1,999,900 rubles. Coolray falls roughly in the middle of this range, and if we compare the equipment of comparable prices, then Geely and Ki will have it about the same. In other words, if you do not need an all-wheel drive Seltos "at maximum speed", it makes sense to consider the "Chinese"

SkodKaroq

Вместительный, практичный и неожиданно плавный на ходу, кроссовер Skodпродвигается на российском рынке под слоганом «Особенный путь». Что ж, пути у Карока и Кулрея пока похожи - например, оба лишены полного привода. Только у чешского кроссовера он со временем появится, а вот китайскому не положен конструктивно. Мотор и коробку пока выбирать тоже нельзя - доступна только связка 150-сильного турбомотора 1.4 и восьмиступенчатого автомата. Комплектаций доступно три: от 1 387 000 до 1 673 000 рублей, но с учётом опций цену можно загнать за 1,8 миллиона, при этом не получив какого-то космического оснащения" style="width: 823px; margin-right: 8px;">

SkodKaroq Roomy, practical and unexpectedly smooth on the move, the Skod crossover is being promoted on the Russian market under the slogan "Special Way". Well, the paths for Karok and Kulray are still similar - for example, both are devoid of all-wheel drive. Only the Czech crossover will have it over time, but the Chinese one is not constructively supposed. The engine and gearbox cannot be chosen yet either - only a bunch of a 150-horsepower 1.4 turbo engine and an eight-speed automatic is available. There are three configurations available: from 1,387,000 to 1,673,000 rubles, but taking into account the options, the price can be driven over 1.8 million, without having received some kind of space equipment

Ниссан участвовал в недавнем сравнительном тесте - и не смог победить ни Селтос, ни Карок. При этом на его стороне остаётся репутация «полноценного», а не бюджетного кроссовера, что для многих может стать определяющим фактором. Но в ценовой диапазон Geely Coolray попадают только две простейшие комплектации Кашкая, и только с передним приводом. Но можно выбирать и двигатель, и трансмиссию: к вашим услугам двухлитровый 144-сильный атмосферник, турбомотор 1.2 на 114 сил, шестиступенчатая механика и вариатор. Во всех возможных комбинациях " style="width: 823px; margin-right: 8px;">

Nissan Qashqai Nissan participated in a recent comparative test - and could not beat either Seltos or Karok. At the same time, the reputation of a "full-fledged" rather than a budget crossover remains on his side, which for many may become a determining factor. But in the Geely Coolray price range, only two of the simplest Kashkai configurations, and only with front-wheel drive, fall. But you can choose both the engine and the transmission: at your service is a two-liter 144-horsepower naturally aspirated engine, a 1.2 turbo engine with 114 forces, a six-speed mechanics and a variator. In all possible combinations

Hyundai Creta

Для тех, кто не готов признавать в Geely Coolray полноценного конкурента вышеназванным ребятам, всегда есть заслуженная Creta. Она во всём попроще, но за сопоставимые деньги будет в максимальной комплектации, на полном приводе и с проверенными силовыми агрегатами - атмосферными моторами 1.6 и 1.2 (123 и 150 лошадиных сил соответственно) и с классическим шестиступенчатым «автоматом». А уверенность в надёжности - весомый аргумент для этого сегмента " style="width: 823px; margin-right: 8px;">

Hyundai Cret For those who are not ready to recognize Geely Coolray as a full-fledged competitor to the aforementioned guys, there is always a well-deserved Creta. It is simpler in everything, but for comparable money it will be in the maximum configuration, on all-wheel drive and with proven power units - atmospheric engines 1.6 and 1.2 (123 and 150 horsepower, respectively) and with a classic six-speed automatic transmission. And confidence in reliability is a strong argument for this segment

Geely Atlas и Atlas Pro

Наконец, есть у Кулрея и внутренний соперник - старший кроссовер Atlas. Да, платформа у него не такая свежая, а дизайн не такой броский, зато он крупнее, комфортнее (пусть и с серьёзным ущербом для управляемости), а вариантов предлагает больше. Так, за полтора миллиона можно взять машину с полным приводом, шестиступенчатым «автоматом» и атмосферным мотором 2.4, развивающим 149 лошадиных сил. А ведь на подходе ещё и версия Atlas Pro - с совершенно новым салоном и таким же дуэтом мотора-трансмиссии, как у Кулрея. Цен на обновлённые машины пока нет, но можно ожидать, что такой кроссовер поспорит с топовыми версиями Селтоса - притом заметно превосходя его в размерах" style="width: 823px; margin-right: 8px;">

Geely Atlas and Atlas Pro Finally, Coulray has an internal rival - the senior crossover Atlas. Yes, his platform is not so fresh, and the design is not so catchy, but it is larger, more comfortable (albeit with serious damage to handling), and offers more options. So, for one and a half million you can take a car with all-wheel drive, six-speed "automatic" and 2.4 atmospheric engine, developing 149 horsepower. But the Atlas Pro version is also on the way - with a completely new interior and the same motor-transmission duet as Culray's. There are no prices for the updated cars yet, but we can expect that such a crossover will compete with the top versions of Seltos - moreover, significantly surpassing it in size

Output

So, Geely Coolray costs about the same as its closest competitors - and in other circumstances, we would admit it is too optimistic for a Chinese car. But the point is that there is nothing to objectively demand a discount for! This crossover has a striking appearance, almost the best-in-class interior and more than adequate driving habits.Yes, it is not the most practical one, and a few ergonomic miscalculations slightly blur the impression of the interior, but tell me: which state employee is not without sin nowadays? And the main thing here is that the severity of these sins - no, even sins - no more than those of competitors.

Theorem Proven: Geely Coolray Detailed Test
Theorem Proven: Geely Coolray Detailed Test

Yes, Coolrey is still a Chinese car. In addition, it is equipped with a small turbo engine and a potentially capricious "robot". And we will be lying if we say that this cannot and should not cause a certain skepticism. On the other hand, Geely Atlas is right now the most popular "Chinese" in the Russian market and is gradually gaining a reputation - not only for itself, but for the brand as a whole. It is possible that this will help his younger relative as well. Moreover, Coolray is much, much better as a car.
