Car video reviews:

Body style: Hatchback
Segment: Mini

The Chinese carmakers were on the verge of conquering other territories, and Geely produced the LC to compete in the supermini segment against Toyota Aygo, Suzuki Alto, Hyundai i10, and Kia Picanto.

Geely said that its design team was inspired by the national bear Panda when it penned the vehicle. So, if someone would think that it resembles the Toyota Yaris or Aygo, it would be wrong. Nevertheless, the Geel LC Panda was a good start for the Chinese carmaker. Thus, it learned from the production to the supply lines all the problems it could encounter for other future products.

Actually, looking at the car's front fascia, the headlights seem to be inspired by the cute Panda bear. Moreover, the grille positioned lower in the bumper's apron mimicked the same animal. From its profile, the Geely LC Panda showed an egg shape with an almost continuous line that stretched from the hood to the windshield. Finally, the car's back is curved down, like a bear sitting on its tail. Strangely, there was no tailgate; only the rear windscreen was opening, allowing the user to access the trunk.

Inside, the most striking news is about the dashboard's illumination, which is blue. A round, gray, plastic trim adorned the center stack and encircled the stereo and a pair of vents. Lower, on the center console, the carmaker placed a pair of cupholders. The car offered room for four, two at the front and two in the back, with a split-folding (60/40) rear bench.

Under the hood, Geely installed a four-pot gasoline engine that produced a healthy (for its displacement) 84 ponies. The only transmission available was a five-speed gearbox that sent the power to the front wheels.
