Geely Xing Yue Comes With Facial Recognition Software
Intelligent Humanized Features, Improving Users Mobile Life
This is a Geely sports crossover that will not be coming to Malaysia any time soon. Under the bonnet sits a 1.5-litre, turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. In the advanced PHEV variants, this powertrain delivers a healthy 254hp and 415Nm of peak torque. It comes mated a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox which, Geely engineers claim can shift gears in just 0.2 seconds and boasts an industry leading 97 percent transmission efficiency.
The design language of this Geely follows along the lines of the BMW X4 (RM375,800), Mercedes GLC Coupe(RM423,888) and also the Porsche Macan Coupe. All prestigious names and in the premium segment with prices starting from RM375,000 in Malaysia. Well, this Geely Xing Yue is no small ‘player’. Loaded with latest tech and with cabin quality rivalling its sibling, Volvo and Polestar, the Xing Yue is Geely’s ticket into Europe once its brand recognition and value has been completed.
The Geely Xing Yue is equipped with a Face-ID system which automatically adjust the vehicle settings such as seat position, mirrors, entertainment system, etc based on facial recognition. The system also improves driver safety by assessing and warning the driver of fatigue and distractions based on their facial expressions, including blink frequency or frequent yawning.
As with all new Geely Auto models, the Xing Yue comes with the latest GKUI Geely Smart Ecosystem connecting the occupants to the world. The latest version GKUI 2.0 comes with improved user interface, intelligent speech recognition, and navigation. The GKUI can be accessed either through the voice command, the 12.3-inch interactive central infotainment panel or the digital instrument panel.
Comprehensive Intelligent Safety
In terms of safety, Xing Yue inherits and improves on Geely’s “safety identification circle” technologies. The Xing Yue comes with 22 exterior sensors, allowing it to reach L2 levels of intelligent driving with features such as ICC Intelligent Cruise Control, TJA Traffic Jam Assistance, Full Speed ACC Adaptive Cruise Control, LKS Lane Keeping System, etc.
Parking has been made easier with an APA automatic park assist system developed by Bosch, which can automatically scan for parking spots and park the Xing Yue with a push of a button. Along with 360° HD panoramic imaging system, parking has never been easier.
Helping keep driver’s eyes on the road, the Xing Yue comes with a 9-inch large screen full-color HUD system displaying 9 different types of driving information. The HUD automatically adjusts its brightness according to the environment.
Three dimensional safety is achieved with intelligent features such as AEB-P automatic emergency brakes with pedestrian identification, RCW rear collision warning, SLIF speed limit identification, LCA lane change assist, BSD blind spot detection, DOW door open warning, etc. The Xing Yue is equipped to protect those inside, as well as outside.
