Since its 2019 arrival, the Geely Coolray showed the Philippine market that there is something worthwhile in acquiring a China-made, relatively inexpensive chock full of 2020-present features sport utility vehicle (SUV).
Sure, the 2018 launch of the MC ZS started the trend of breaking the notion that China autos (let alone China SUVs) had bad quality control, lacked creature comforts necessary in an ever-changing global automotive theater, had little response from any pedal, and were generally unsafe. But the Coolray, following the first four letters of its name, made an easily-followed trend out of getting a China-sourced entry-level utility runner, thanks to introductory pricing that started at less than a million Philippine pesos. That action made fellow China-manufactured competitors like the Chana CS35, the Chery Tiggo 5X Pro, the GAC GS3, and the JAC more than passing fancy options in a crowded segment that includes the Toyota Raize, Hyundai Creta, Kia Stonic, Nissan Juke, Ford Territory, Honda HR-V, Chevrolet Trailblazer, SsangYong Tivoli, and Subaru XV.
However, three years have passed since the Coolray’s debut, and this Geely go-getter still has a chip on its fenders, trying to create a niche for itself.
