Crossover face-off: Geely Coolray versus MG ZS

Crossover face-off: Geely Coolray versus MG ZS

Crossovers have continued to be popular as they hit the right spot in terms of desirability, convenience, and ability.

Combining the creature comforts of sedans and the elevated driving position and power of SUVs, crossovers have surely resonated in buyers on the lookout for value and ability.

After being named the top-selling model among other subcompact crossover competitors last July 2020, the Geely Coolray continues to win over customers.

This Geely features the brand's “Youth Power” aesthetic concept and a G-Power engine that is made of a lightweight alloy that utilizes  fuel injection and second-generation turbo innovations. These powertrains are engineered to provide  cutting-edge power and performance. 

Aside from having an expansive cabin and a futuristic interior, the Geely Coolray also features the G-Pilot, which is the auto brand’s autonomous driving technology aided by the modification of intelligent drive systems engineered to fulfill the growing demands of the automotive market.

Also, Geely’s G-Safety was developed to improve the security of both occupants and pedestrians. Active and passive safety systems in the Coolray allow you to monitor the car’s surroundings 360 degrees for maximum safety.

Although there are similarities in the emission standard, suspension, braking system, and presence of a panoramic sunroof, how does the Geely Coolray stack up against another crossover looker, the MG ZS?

The MG ZS boasts of topnotch styling, signature “London Eye” headlights, “Polaris” taillights, a “Stardust” front grille, and advanced comfort and safety features. It also has a hexagonal emblem that lends its design concept to the alloy wheels of the ZS.

At this point, we take a look at the features of the Geely Coolray Sport and the MG ZS Alpha AT variants below to learn more. So, which do you prefer?
