Geely South Africa has informally challenged car manufacturers to beat its Geely MK 1.5 sedan which is now offered for R99 990. In 1999 a challenge was set to offer a budget car for R9 990 and car manufacturers stripped their entry-level cars and offered them as new models. Geely now offers the well-specced 1.5 MK sedan, without compromising features.
Geely MK sedan offers affordability“It is an informal, light-hearted challenge from us to other manufacturers to offer the same great value for money vehicles we do – in terms of specification, size and price,” says Henri Meistre, Managing Director of Geely South Africa.
Geely will not be ordering more of its popular MK series before the end of the year and will be running out the current model. “We are expecting the MK’s hatchback replacement late this year,” says Meistre. “The new model replacing it will be a ‘global’ car, designed by Italy’s Giugiaro. It promises higher quality and equipment levels, putting it into a more upmarket segment.”
The Geely MK 1.5 sedan comes standard with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), dual airbags, air-conditioning, electric windows, CD/Radio, Rear Park Assist and alloy rims.
