The Lynk & Co model with index 06 was already flickering in foreign media reports: it was believed that such a design would release a large three-row SUV built on the new Geely platform – DMA, which, as suggested by some specialized media, is an analogue of the Volvo SPA (on it based on Volvo sixtieth and ninety series). Now it turned out that the nameplate 06 is the smallest crossover brand Lynk & Co, his photographs were added to the base of the Ministry of Industry of China.
At the heart of the “six” is probably the CMA “truck” (a joint development of Volvo and Gili), and all the other current Links are created on it – these are SUVs 01 and 02, sedan 03 and cross-coupe 05. However, among the Chinese media there are and those who believe that the new SUV received a Geely BMA platform. Be that as it may, the length of the novelty is 4340 mm, the width is 1820 mm, the height is 1625 mm, the wheelbase is 2640 mm. For comparison, the dimensions of Lynk & Co 02, which until then was the brand’s most compact SUV: 4448/1890/1528 mm, the distance between the axles – 2702 mm.
The appearance of Lynk & Co 06 is made in the corporate style of the brand, the main difference from other models is the “soaring” roof and “their own” taillights. The model provides 17-, 18- or 19-inch wheels, bright decorative inserts on the body, adaptive cruise control and a panoramic sunroof. In addition, the “six” has a hybrid version, its features are a radiator grill with a “ledge” and flaunted dual tailpipes.
The “regular” cross 06 is equipped with a 1.5-liter Volvo petrol turbo engine with a capacity of 177 hp, familiar from other Lynk & Co. models The engine is probably combined with a seven-speed two-clutch robotic gearbox. But whether the SUV has four-wheel drive is not yet known (other SUVs have 4WD versions). The hybrid received an installation based on the same 1.5T motor.
Lynk & Co 06 is expected to enter the Chinese market next year. Most likely, it will turn out to be the cheapest SUV in the range, despite the “senior” index. In the meantime, this title belongs to Lynk & Co 02: the price of the “deuce” starts at 119,800 yuan, which is equivalent to about 1,073,000 rubles at the current rate.
Outside the Middle Kingdom, the Lynk & Co brand is not represented today, it will begin to conquer Europe in 2020. Geely and Volvo cars of the joint brand are also promised to our country, but the exact dates are unknown.
