The Geely MR is a subcompact car produced by Chinese automaker Geely Automobile since May 2000.[1] The MR is produced in five-door hatchback (Merrie / 美日) and four-door sedan (Uliou / 优利欧) body styles.

The MR is based on the Daihatsu Charade platform, which Geely licensed from Xiali. Its base underpinnings are also shared with the HQ/Haoqing and Rural/Urban Nanny.

The MR was shown at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show along with four other Geely models.

Merrie[edit]

The Merrie is a five-door hatchback that looks like a sedan due to a short protruding trunk. It was introduced in 2000 and updated as the Merrie MR 203 at the 2005 Shanghai Motor Show. The MR 203 received the same styling changes as the previous years MR 303 sedan, but unlike the sedan the hatchback is only available with the 1.5-litre engine, hence its official model code of JL 7150 X6.[1]

Uliou[edit]

Geely Merrie MR 303

The Uliou is a four-door sedan version of the MR introduced in 2002 as the MR 7130 (1.3-liter engine). In 2003 the 1.5-litre MR 7150 was introduced, and the next year a restyled version was added. The new version was called the Merrie MR 303 (official model code was MR 7130 X3) and is only built with the smaller engine.[1]
