Lynk & Co unveils the 05, its best-trimmed SUV so far
The Chinese company will be launching the 05 in Europe next year, but the exact date and pricing remain to be confirmed.
On the outside, the Lynk & Co 05 looks like a coupe-shaped 01, but boasts a wider range of installed equipment, a completely overhauled cabin, and fresher looks. Among other things, it sports new wheels and bumpers, radiator grille, and headlight patterns.
Inside, the company keeps physical controls to a minimum, introducing a variety of large touch panels and displays instead. The center tunnel, steering wheel and dashboard have been redesigned from the 01, a HUD was added, and the infotainment system now has wireless smartphone charging capacity.
Paid options include adaptive cruise control, panoramic glass roof, and power-assisted front seats.
Powering the series is the Volvo Drive-E 2.0 TSI engine rated at 190 hp (142 kW). A couple hybrid variants based on a 1.5-liter/three-cylinder gas engine will become available later. The transmission is always eight-speed automatic, but you can choose between FWD and AWD.
