Geely Enters Seven-Seater Segment in the UAE with Launch of All-New Okavango SUV

07 Mar 2024
  • What are the design features of the Geey Okavango SUV 2024?

AGMC, the official distributor of Geely Auto in the UAE, has announced the launch of the Geely Okavango, its all-new seven-seater SUV offering advanced technologies, exceptional comfort and design, and class-leading interior space to customers in the UAE.

Named after one of Africa’s last great natural sanctuaries in Botswana, the Geely Okavango is a seamless integration of performance, elegance, and adaptability. Geely’s largest SUV to date has an industry-leading space utilization rate that maximizes interior comfort and practicality. The seven seats can be fully folded, providing an expansive yet functional storage space of 2050 litres, while the interior levelling space can measure up to 2.2m long – equivalent to a king-sized bed.



A futuristic design encompassing Geely’s iconic Stonehenge 3-Dash daytime running lights and full-width Lava Flow taillights explores the boundaries of aesthetics with its merging lines, structure, and space to create an alluring, modern appeal.

Commenting on the launch, Dr Andreas Schaaf, CEO – New Ventures at Albatha Automotive said: “In a market well known for its love of SUVs, the introduction of Geely Okavango adds an exciting new choice for customers. It reinforces Geely’s strategic vision to become the world’s most competitive and respected auto brand. I am confident the Okavango will become a wildly popular fixture on the UAE’s roads. It offers great style, driving performance and space at a very accessible price point, making it the ideal choice for all occasions. At Geely AGMC, we take immense pride in offering our valued customers a wide selection of vehicles to suit different lifestyles and needs, which is backed by our exceptional customer service and a smooth buying experience.”

The interior of the all-new Geely Okavango is thoughtfully designed for all aspects of life – including work, leisure and active adventures with friends and family. The refreshed zero-pressure seats offer exceptional comfort while the material itself is odourless and eco-friendly. Featuring a 540-degree HD panoramic camera, a 60-inch UV resistant panoramic sunroof, modern dashboard with 12.3-inch central display and a double layered central console design, the all-new Geely Okavango indeed pushes the boundaries of technological possibility.

Customers can look forward to unleashing peak performance powered by the 2.0 litre TDI engine and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, producing 218hp and 325Nm of torque, that offers a smooth and powerful start, transforming the drive into a dynamic and enjoyable experience.

The vehicle’s high-performance engine propels it from 0 to 100 km/h in a rapid 7.9 seconds, complemented by an exceptionally comfortable independent suspension system and a BOSCH 9.3 Electronic Stability Program that reduces body roll and maximises handling on the road to offer a driving experience that harmonizes stability and comfort.

Built with utmost safety in mind, technology in the all-new Okavango has been elevated to include passenger health and sustainability. With six airbags and a strong steel body structure, the vehicle can robustly protect its occupants, and the 540-degree HD panoramic camera helps motorists safely navigate their surroundings when manoeuvring and parking.

The Dubai-based 2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster featured on SBX Cars has become the most valuable car ever transacted via an online-only auction platform, selling for US$6,000,000 last week. The sale surpasses a 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, which previously sold for US$5,360,000 in 2022. This marks not only a new online auction record, but also an impressive milestone for the newly-founded SBX Cars platform.

The rare Veneno Roadster, only one of nine worldwide, had previously appeared at a well-known in-person auction house in 2020, with an estimated sale price of between €4,500,000 and €5,500,000, however, failed to sell.

Previously owned by a member of the House of Saud, the royal family of Saudi Arabia, the coveted road-legal 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 Veneno Roadster has a maximum output of 750 PS / 552 kW / 740 HP and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 355 km/h.

Finished in a matt black over an interior trimmed in lime green and black leather, the super sports car also boasts lime-green pinstriping on the exterior, adding a touch of contrast and personality to its fighter-jet-like bodywork.

In the two months since launching, SBX Cars has registered thousands of global bidders from over 40 countries, and has sold cars into the US, Mexico, Dubai, Kuwait, Germany and Hong Kong. The platform is the world's first global premium auction site, selling the the most coveted and collectible vehicles to buyers all over the world.

SBX Cars also announced the exclusive rights to auction the highly-anticipated Lotus Black&Gold Collection - the world’s largest collection of Lotus historic cars and rare collectible assets from the famous John Player Special Formula One era.

The New MINI Cooper 5 Door

The New MINI Cooper 5 Door

A few months after the launch of the new MINI Cooper 3 Door, the five-door Cooper is now joining the new MINI family. The MINI Cooper 5 Door is characterised by the brand's typical driving fun, extended space, and distinctive functionality. These make the five-seater an exceptional phenomenon in its segment, together with its unique design - a combination of tradition and modern, purist styling - and innovative assistance systems.

The body dimensions are almost identical to those of its predecessor and underline the basic idea behind every MINI: To create as much space as possible on a small footprint. In the case of the MINI Cooper 5 Door, this means an interior that offers enough space for five passengers. All of which benefits the occupants in terms of comfort and space. Short overhangs, clear surfaces and expressive accents also give the new MINI Cooper 5 Door its unmistakable charisma. Inside, digital innovations and an immersive user experience take the MINI DNA to a new level.

The larger body version of the purist MINI Cooper also delivers the brand's hallmark driving fun and agile handling. There is a choice of two efficient petrol engines which, combined with the modern chassis and precise steering, deliver the hallmark MINI go-kart feeling.

The three-cylinder petrol engine of the MINI Cooper 5 Door C generates 156 hp. The MINI Cooper 5 Door S is powered by a four-cylinder petrol engine with 204 hp. Hallmark MINI steering and powerful brakes ensure a high level of driving fun, safety, and comfort. Compact dimensions, short overhangs, and a small turning circle make the MINI Cooper 5 Door a versatile model for the city.

The new MINI Cooper is characterised by "Charismatic Simplicity". The design language of the current MINI family presents the traditional values of the brand with a striking clarity. The authentic design language of the new models combines advanced technology with elementary principles of vehicle design and brand origins.
