First Look At The Interior Of The Geely Bin Rui Cool
Cool or not, this compact sedan is quite a looker
These are the first official interior images of the upcoming Geely Bin Rui Cool, which is essentially a more hip version of the Bin Rui F-Type Sport, as evidenced by the “F” badge on the grille. It is slated to be launched sometime in the first half of this year, carrying a price tag of 79,800 RMB (RM52,790).
Befitting its nomenclature, the interior of the Bin Rui Cool takes on a new two-tone colour scheme comprising of dark green and black, along with a splash of orange to spice things up. This interesting mix of colours is matched with a carbon fibre-like material on the centre console and a metallic chrome strip that stretches all the way to the mobile phone charging compartment under the central screen.
This version gains several new features including a racing-type electronic gear lever, a 72-colour ambient lighting system and rear air-conditioning vents. The dashboard has also been brought up to date design-wise, with a 12.3-inch central screen positioned on top of the central air-conditioning vents, next to a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster.
It’s worth noting that the Bin Rui Cool also gets dual-density racing seats wrapped with black polyurethane and 3-mm thick faux suede. An inverse arc surface design on the cushion and backseat help shape the seats to fit and support the body better.
The dark green colour scheme is repeated on the exterior of the compact sedan, with orange strips embellishing the front lip, side skirts and air intake surrounds in the lower grille. A prominent carbon fibre rear wing, Audi RS-esque oval exhaust tips as well as 17-inch wheels in gloss black with yellow-painted brake callipers complete the Bin Rui Cool’s sporty look.
Powering the Bin Rui Cool is Geely’s 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 181 PS (133 kW), paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that channels the output to the front wheels. This is a significant performance increase over the 141 PS/235 Nm 1.4-litre turbocharged engine found in the standard Bin Rui.
