The CK is a subcompact sedan Geely has been manufacturing since 2005. Based on a South Korean design by Daewoo, the CK has remained largely unchanged since its introduction. Although the Chinese company has been exporting it to certain markets in South and Central America, the CK has yet to reach North America. However, the subcompact was the first Chinese automobile ever displayed at an American auto show. Geely showcased the CK at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show — it was only shown to the press and not the general public — claiming it will sell for less than $10,000 when it goes on sale by 2008. Geely dropped its ambitious plans after the sedan failed the IIHS and NHTSA safety tests.

As the Chinese manufacturer is again considering bringing its products to the United States, the CK returns as a potential candidate for the subcompact segment. But is the CK good enough to go against the likes of the Ford Fiesta and the Kia Rio? Will it satisfy the demanding American customer and is it safe enough for challenging safety tests in the U.S. 10 years since its inception? Read on to get some answers.

The CK’s cabin is fairly simple and all the surfaces seem to be rock-hard plastic. Again, it’s like I’ve traveled back into the 1990s. There’s no sign of modern technology such as an infotainment system and all the buttons and switches are old-fashioned. Likewise, you won’t spot even an inch of leather throughout the cabin.

On the other hand, Geely offers a two-tone interior scheme that blends black and light-beige, helping the CK become a bit more tolerable on the inside. Air conditioning and power windows come standard.

Two different gasoline engines help move the CK around. First up is a 1.3-liter four-banger rated at only 84 ponies and 81 pound-feet of torque. Mated to a five-speed manual, the four-pot pushes the sedan from 0 to 62 mph in a disappointing 18 seconds before reaching a top speed of only 93 mph.

The second mill is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 100 horsepower and 100 pound-feet at its disposal. With this engine, the car’s performance remains nearly unchanged with 62 mph coming in 17.9 seconds, while top speed sits at the same 93-mph mark. Needless to say, this sedan won’t take you anywhere in a hurry and it overtaking will require a good bit of planning and maybe a slight downward slope.
