It’s only been a couple of weeks since Geely Philippines entered the local sedan game with the introduction of the Emgrand, and here we are already salivating over the prospect of another one.

This is the Geely Binrui Cool—a Chinese-built compact sedan with an attitude. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because this is a sportier take on the car manufacturer’s standard Binrui. This one packs a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine.

According to Paultan.org, that mill is good enough for an output of 178hp and comes paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). This figure is a considerable step up from the 139hp the uncool Binrui and its 1.4-liter engine puts out, and it makes the Emgrand’s 102hp look incredibly underpowered.

We think the real draw here, though, is the aesthetic it flaunts. While most Geely offerings we see here lean more towards conveying a premium and stylish vibe, the Binrui Cool adopts a more energetic and aggressive exterior design. This is highlighted by the muscular face, angry headlights, and bold character lines covering the vehicle’s profile. Photos even show a mean spoiler planted on the car’s rear.

That sportiness is carried over to the sedan’s cabin as well. A dark overall theme contrasts incredibly well with nice splashes of the exterior colorway, and there’s a nice floating 12.3-inch touchscreen display, too.

The report adds that the Geely Binrui Cool comes with a starting price of 79,800 Chinese yuan (over P650,000). If this lands in the Philippines, do you think this could take on established Japanese offerings like the Honda Civic? We’d like to hear your thoughts regarding this.
