Skyline Automotive, a subsidiary of Jaidah Group, launched Geely Auto Group’s newest CMA-based SUV in Qatar at Eiwan Al Gassar art gallery, St. Regis hotel. Named the Monjaro, the high-end SUV is the most advanced SUV ever from Geely Auto. The launch of Monjaro adds a third model to Geely’s flagship models in Qatar which also include the Coupe SUV Tugella and the compact SUV Coolray.
Mohamed Jaidah, Group Executive Director of Jaidah Group said: “[SK1] We are incredibly pleased to see this masterpiece come to life in Qatar. The all-new Monjaro clearly demonstrates Geely's design language evolving to a new level. Not only is the Monjaro stunningly stunning, but its features and technological advancements position it to compete and thrive in its market. I am confident that anyone who tries this SUV will thoroughly love it."
From his side, Maher Tinawi, Geely’s Brand Manager at Skyline Automotive said: “The Monjaro takes the SUV market to new heights. With its spacious interior, upscale exterior and excellent powertrain, this luxurious vehicle, from inside out, is the perfect option for both families and sports car lovers.”
The Monjaro, which is built on the Compact Modular Architecture, has robust proportions with a 1,610mm broad wheel track and a 2,845mm long wheelbase, giving it both a commanding presence and an expansive interior. The Monjaro appears bold yet tranquil, tough yet polished, and traditional yet trendy depending on the angle from which it is seen.
The interior of the Monjaro orchestrates a wonderful symphony between Eastern and Western styling.
The devil is in the details, such as deliberate material and color selections, to achieve a modernistic yet classic elegant interior. Custom suede is present throughout the interior giving occupants a low-key hint of luxury. Weaving in the seats incorporate Chinese elements like classical knots, adding an element of refinement to the details.
Technology has become the core base in creating a luxurious interior environment. Inside, a panoramic integrated cockpit space has been created. Designers sought to provide the finest experience for drivers and passengers by merging intelligent human-machine interaction into a visually immersive opulent setting. The Monjaro comes with a 10-speaker high-performance BOSE sound system which is combined with engine harmonic noise reduction technology and double-layered soundproofing, creating a serene interior environment like a symphonic concert hall. The addition of an interior lighting system can be customized and adapted to the driving mode creating an improved mood and atmosphere.
The Monjaro has been built using Geely's most cutting-edge Compact Modular Architecture and is equipped with top-notch safety, performance, intelligence, and sustainability. It is powered by Volvo and Geely’s jointly developed Drive-E 2.0TD engine matched with Aisin’s 8-speed automatic transmission. This high-powered combination outputs a maximum power of 175kW and up to 350 N.m of torque capable of a 0-100km/h acceleration in 7.7s.
With BorgWarner’s sixth-generation four-wheel drive system, a 50:50 front/rear torque distribution is possible, offering Monjaro users improved off-road performance. Depending on your mood and road condition, the Monjaro is equipped with 5 driving modes: an energy-efficient ECO mode, refined NORM mode, speedy SPORT mode, reliable SNOW mode, and a powerful OFF-ROAD mode.
The Monjaro is the first Geely model to provide HWA Highway Assisted Driving, which actively analyzes the vehicle's surroundings, changes lanes on its own, and keeps a safe distance from large cars. This feature is made possible by the advanced sensor suite. Additionally, by signaling, drivers can tell the Monjaro to change lanes on its own.
With the ambition to be one of the top automotive groups in the world, Geely entered the era of modular manufacturing, having developed four industry-leading modular vehicle architectures, B-segment Modular Architecture (BMA), Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), and the Pure electric Modular Architecture (PMA). By using the industry-leading CMA, Geely Auto is set to launch new global products that meet the standards of luxury vehicles.
