The lucky winners of an iPad in our cool competition are revealed!
It’s been a great journey with the Geely gang and one that we hope you’ve enjoyed as much as we have.
Over the past month, we’ve found out just why Geely has become the brightest new star in the automotive market, with a name that has become synonymous with quality, durability and, most of all, affordability.
The Chinese brand is making inroads into the Sultanate’s car sales, with a growing fanbase spreading across the country. Being a member of the Geely gang is so much fun and because they offer incredible value for money, it’s not exclusive either. Anyone can join, whether you go for the cute GC2 Panda, one of the sedans (Emgrand 7 or 8) or the 2.4L Emgrand X7, a rugged SUV for urban or rural driving.
All Geely models are designed and made in line with European safety standards and have a five-star China – New Car Assessment Program (C-NCAP) rating across all models.
We’ve heard from Geely owners about their love affair with the brand and why they wouldn’t settle for anything less. Now we can reveal the two lucky winners of our competition held in association with Towell Auto Centre, the sole distributor of Geely Emgrand in Oman.
We asked Y readers to submit questions about the brand, which were then put to registered Geely owners to answer. Each week, we’ve been publishing four of the best Q&As.
It’s been a hard job choosing the top two – we’ve had some great questions and informative answers. But in the end, we went for Adil Nasser al Jabri and Abul Hashem Muhammad. The separate winning question and answer is below. Congratulations! Well done to both of you and we’ll be in touch about collecting your prize of an iPad. Thanks to everyone who took part, both asking and answering questions. You’ll always be members of the Geely gang.

Q: The Emgrand X7 is a best-selling SUV with excellent safety features but can we compare it to a Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4 and other SUVs? Some people think a Chinese brand is inferior without knowing the true features.
From Adil Nasser al Jabri (November 13 issue)
A: I am proud to say that my brother owns a Geely Emgrand 7, which both he and I drive. Most people are dumbfounded when they see our car. They always seem skeptical about Geely as a legitimate and quality brand of car. However, once they get to ride in it, boy, do their opinions change! I’ve always found the Emgrand to be one of the best cars I’ve ever driven, if not the best. I love absolutely everything about it – comfort, daily drivability, the interior and exterior, you name it! I definitely wish to see more and more Geely vehicles gracing Oman’s highways in the very near future.

Grab a Geely
Whatever you want from a car, Geely will have the answer for you. The full range in Oman is the GC2 (Panda), a hot hatch with heart, cuteness and a 1.5L engine, the trendy GX2 crossover with vibrant colours, the suave Emgrand 7 sedan with a 1.8L engine, its bigger brother the 2.4L Emgrand 8 and the daddy of the gang, the Emgrand X7, the first SUV to receive the five-star star rating in the China – New Car Assessment Program (C-NCAP) test.
