geely aoo Spyshots: Geely to launch Geely URGHHHH!

This car, named the Geely ‘Aoo’ is to be unveiled at the Guangzhou Auto Show later this year, but we think it deserves an airing on China Car Times as well!

Geely designers have gone all ACME on the front of this car with its massive bug eyed grill and light designs. Perhaps Geely are trying to recreate Cherys success with the iconic QQ, perhaps they will be able to, or perhaps they wont be able to (more than likely the latter)

The engine is likely to be a 3 cylinder model that Geely already has in its portfolio, the motoring press are saying it will be of CVVT stock.

The final comment from the Chinese article was ‘Extremely Chinese, Extremely Cute, Extremely COOL!’ But what do you think?

    Classic comment on the Geely AOO from Autoblog Italia:

    ‘Mamma mia! E’ più brutta di un giorno senza pane!
    Beh, almeno non è copiata da una qualche altra auto occidentale o giapponese.’

    You never can tell what will sell these days, Jim Corty. Why look at the rolling shoe boxes that Scion and Honda are doing so well with. The desire of youth to defy the establishment’s preferences is very strong indeed. Yeah it’s ugly but ugly can spell “Cool” or “Hot”. Whatever..

    I showed the pic of the front to a Cantonese girl and she said “looking is ok” so I guess its just us gweilos who think it is bloody ugly…
    I’m hoping to go to the GZ show next weekend so I’ll see if it looks better in real life.

    I showed to my Chinese wife, who is still laughing from embarressment. All of my Chinese colleagues (who are in the auto industry) have many different thoughts, from 2 who think it looks like a ‘girls front bottom’ to ‘whoever designed and approved the thing must nave been drinking buddies’ Not one even slightly favourable comment. It just gets worse (the hope for the Chinese auto industry that is)

    Yes Dragin we never know what will sell till they throw it out there…That’s why I drive a Beijing Jeep with a Ford V8 under the hood…And a Jag…And a 65 Mustang convertible…And a Lancia Zagoto…God I love cars, just not skateboards with 3 cylinders, that need a crucifix on the dash….B good!

    Wierd, correct me if I’m wrong, but this looks like another
    copy of the Toyota Aygo/Citroën C1/Peugeot 107. I’ll give them
    credit for changing the front and partially the back design, but
    this is truly “Chinese” indeed(as in, another counterfeit Chinese
    car).

    Word is thay Geely spent extensive time in their R&D dept developing this. Their R&D dept is the same as most Chinese manufacturers ‘Recieve and Duplicate’.

    What does it run on, judging by the size of the grill, I’d say it eats bugs for fuel. Although it looks like some sort of bug itself.
