Geely AGMC Introduces Affordable Luxury to UAE and Invites Drivers to Stand Tall with Launch of Flagship Monjaro SUV

19 Sep 2023
  • What are the latest technology and advanced features in the Geely Monjaro?
  • What are the specifications of the Geely Monjaro?

AGMC, the official distributor of Geely vehicles in the UAE, has launched Monjaro, the high-end flagship SUV from Geely Auto based on the advanced Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) offering world-class safety, performance, intelligence, and efficiency at an affordable price.

The most advanced SUV ever to be launched by Geely Auto, the Monjaro is meticulously crafted and enhanced by industry-leading features such as the Highway Assisted Driving that actively monitors the vehicle’s surroundings and autonomously changes lanes, and 540-degree Surround View, while the powerful, yet efficient 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine generates 175kW (235hp) and 350Nm of torque through a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission.

To mark the occasion, an exclusive special launch edition colour scheme was unveiled for the Monjaro combining a stylish Matte Grey exterior with elegant Caramel interior finish to add a new option to the Monjaro range, which is currently available under a launch offer starting from AED 123,900 for the Monjaro GK trim level, and AED 133,900 for the Monjaro GF trim. The range-topping GF+ is available for AED 138,900, and comes in two exclusive colours – Matte Grey and Turquoise Blue.

The launch offer also includes a three-year finance package at just 0.99%, free registration and window tinting, a five-year or 100,000km service contract, and a five-year or 150,000km warranty.

Commenting on the launch, Dr Andreas Schaaf, CEO – New Ventures at Albatha Automotive, said: “We are thrilled to bring the all-new Monjaro, a world-class SUV packed with the latest technology, security, design and entertainment features, to our customers in the United Arab Emirates at a very affordable price positioning. While offering advanced technologies and luxurious features, the Monjaro doesn’t forget its DNA as a sports utility vehicle, with a wide wheel track, long wheelbase, AWD, spacious interior and cargo space which establish Monjaro as practical, reliable, and ready for adventure. This is a vehicle at home on both the streets of the UAE’s urban cityscapes, and its beautiful natural landscapes. Bold, tough and super refined, our flagship model Monjaro sets new benchmarks in the UAE for breathtaking design, premium materials, superior quality and advanced technology features.”

Advanced CMA Architecture

Advanced CMA Architecture

Sitting on the sophisticated CMA platform, the Monjaro is designed with strong proportions; a wide 1610mm wheel track and long 2845mm wheelbase, resulting in both a strong presence and expansive interior. Viewing the Monjaro from different angles presents a tough, yet refined impression.

The interior of the Monjaro is where a true symphony between Eastern and Western styling can be seen. Creating a cabin environment that’s modernistic yet classically refined comes down to the details, including selective material choices and colours. Custom suede is present throughout the interior, giving occupants a subtle hint of luxury. Weaving in the seats incorporates Chinese elements like classical knots, adding an element of refinement in the details.

A highlight of the Geely Monjaro’s interior is the seamless blending of superior technology. A panoramic and integrated cockpit space with three screens offers a visually immersive and luxurious environment integrating intelligent human-machine interaction to offer the best experience for drivers and passengers.

For audiophiles, the Monjaro comes with a powerful 10-speaker high-performance BOSE premium sound system which is combined with engine harmonic noise reduction technology and double layered soundproofing to give passengers the acoustic ambience of a symphony concert hall. Interior lighting has also been raised to the next level with a customizable atmospheric lighting scheme that changes according to the driving mode.

Exceptional Performance

Geely Monjaro drivers can also enjoy an improved off-road performance, thanks to BorgWarner’s sixth-generation four-wheel-drive system, which makes a 50:50 front/rear torque distribution possible. Users can switch between several driving modes to suit their needs, including an energy-efficient ECO mode, refined NORM mode, speedy SPORT mode, reliable SNOW mode, and a powerful OFFROAD mode.

The Monjaro is powered by Volvo and Geely’s jointly developed 2.0L turbo direct injection engine with a maximum output of 175kW (235hp) and 350 Nm of torque, matched with an Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission to match the car’s solid looks with equally solid performance credentials – it is capable of a 0-100km/h acceleration in just 7.7 seconds.

In addition, an advanced sensor suite offers Highway Assisted Driving, which actively monitors the Monjaro’s surroundings, autonomously changes lanes, and moves a safe distance away from large vehicles when needed. Drivers can also direct the Monjaro to autonomously change lanes simply by signalling.

World-class security features of the Geely Monjaro include blind spot and forward collision warning, emergency stopper, central glass darkening, ABS brakes and ISOFIX baby seats. The Geely Monjaro also features a 540° Transparent Chassis, which helps monitor complex conditions underneath the chassis for added confidence during tricky driving situations.

Auto China 2024 and beyond: Mercedes-Benz to showcase its focus on China with new products and localised developments

At and around Auto China 2024, Mercedes Benz underlines its commitment to delivering dedicated products and technologies to Chinese customers. As the largest single automotive market in the world, China plays an important role in the long-term strategy of Mercedes Benz. Running up to the show, the company will maintain its leadership position in this market, headlined by the world premiere of the all-new electric Mercedes Benz G Class.

China is home to the company’s largest production site and the most comprehensive R&D hub outside Germany, playing a significant role in Mercedes Benz’s global R&D network. In recent years, Mercedes Benz strengthened its R&D capabilities in China, particularly in electrification and digitalisation. In 2021, the company opened the new R&D Tech Centre China in Beijing, equipped with state-of-the-art testing labs, including E drive, battery, charging, NVH, and more. In 2022, Mercedes Benz established the new R&D Centre Shanghai, focusing on connectivity, automated driving, plus software and hardware development. This April, a new building will be added with advanced hardware and software facilities designed to accelerate local development in cutting-edge digital innovations. Besides the R&D Centre, the existing Design Centre will continue to promote the digital dimension in Mercedes Benz designs.

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Premium British vehicle manufacturer Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has announced the 25 commemorative names to be paired with the 25 T.50s Niki Lauda chassis. Each of the track-only T.50s supercars will celebrate Gordon Murray’s rich racing heritage with their names commemorating the dates of his first 24 Grand Prix wins at different circuits, and a special endurance race victory.

Already allocated to their owners, each of the T.50s chassis is themed chronologically, starting with Murray’s first race victory – 1974 South Africa at Kyalami – and continuing with each subsequent win at unique locations: 1974 USA at Watkins Glen; 1975 Brazil at Interlagos; 1975 Germany at Nürburgring; 1978 Sweden at Anderstorp; 1980 Italy at Imola; 1980 Netherlands at Zandvoort; 1981 Argentina at Buenos Aires; 1982 Monte Carlo at Monaco; 1982 Canada at Montreal; 1983 Brazil at Rio; 1983 Italy at Monza; 1983 UK at Brands Hatch; 1984 USA at Detroit; 1985 France at Paul Ricard; 1988 Mexico at Mexico City; 1988 UK at Silverstone; 1988 Belgium at Spa; 1988 Portugal at Estoril; 1998 Spain at Jerez; 1988 Japan at Suzuka; 1988 Germany at Hockenheim; 1988 Hungary at Hungaroring; 1988 Australia at Adelaide; 1995 France at La Sarthe.

The news comes ahead of the global dynamic debut of the T.50s Niki Lauda prototype on 13 April at the UK’s Goodwood Motor Circuit. The first public outing for the T.50s prototype will headline the 81st Goodwood Members Meet where more than 15,000 track spectators will enjoy the first outing of the race-spec car revving through to its 12,100 rpm redline. The T.33 mule ‘James’ will also make its dynamic debut at the event marking the progress made by the GMA R&D team and enabling the public to hear the GMA.2 V12 engine for the first time.

The Goodwood event will celebrate the career of famed racer Niki Lauda – the 1970s and 1980s F1 driver whose name appears on every T.50s. Raising the occasion’s significance further, GMA will explain the unique connection between the T.50s and the iconic Brabham BT46B ‘Fan Car’ that Niki Lauda drove to a commanding victory at the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix.

Conceived by Gordon Murray during his 17-year tenure as Chief Designer at the Brabham Formula One team, the BT46B rose to instant iconic status due to Murray’s innovative addition of a ground-effect fan system. Having dominated and won its inaugural race at Anderstorp, Sweden in the hands of Niki Lauda, the model was withdrawn by Brabham to pacify other teams for the good of the championship.

Gordon Murray, CBE – Executive Chairman, Gordon Murray Group: “The dynamic debuts of the GMA T.33 mule and GMA T.50s XP1 mark an important milestone in the development of both supercars. I’m also proud that we will participate in honouring a man who was a one-of-a-kind racer and a great friend by showcasing the T.50s Niki Lauda at Goodwood. Additionally, revealing the 25 historically significant motor racing names for our track-only T.50s is the perfect way to celebrate a favourite event for me and the whole GMA team.”

GMA’s Dario Franchitti will present attendees with an insightful overview of the story of the BT46B and its significance in the design and engineering of the T.50 supercar and its track-spec T.50s sibling. The GMA team will also be joined by His Grace the Duke of Richmond who will take a tour of the Murray display of heritage race cars and modern-day GMA supercars.
