From 2013 Chinese car maker Geely will officially enter the British market. So in preparation for that, they sent the Emgrand EC7 to NCAP to gets its safety rating.
This Chinese saloon didn’t do very well, earning 4 stars out of 5. Now, that’s not something for Geely to boast, but you can’t mock it either because the list of 4-star new cars in the UK includes names like Jaguar XF, Renault Fluence ZE, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Fiat Panda and the MG6.
And you wouldn’t complain about the EC7’s safety rating when you realize it has a base price of just under £10,000, and comes with a five-year, 100,000 miles warranty.
The car will be available in the UK with the choice of two body styles, four door saloons and five door hatchbacks and with the choice of 1.5 or 1.8-litre petrol engines. There will be an automatic transmission option for 1.8-litre versions.
