Chery's Tiggo3 compact two-wheel-drive SUV
The Chery A1

Geely's first Australian offering will be the 1.5 litre MK light car, expected to gain ADR certification in the coming month. The MK will be followed by the larger 1.8 litre Emgrand EC7 small car, and the 1.0 litre Panda city car is also under consideration.

While not available locally, the existence of the 'Panda' name in the Fiat line-up - a brand managed locally by Ateco - mean the Geely Panda is likely to get a new name for Australia.

Ateco's Neville Crichton told GoAuto this week that the Tiggo3 compact SUV, a two-wheel-drive car only, will be offered with a driveaway price under $20,000. The Chery A1 will take on the Hyundai Getz in pricing, but will offer a four-door configuration and a higher specification level.


Great wall isn't to be left out of the regular passenger car game, however, with the 1.5 litre 'Peri' light hatch expected to launch around July.
