[YesAuto Car Buying Manual] Lynk & Co 01 has a high degree of attention, but it has been said that it has not been on the market for a long time. This time the price has finally been announced, and the price is attractive. If it is not a limited edition model, only one model is more than 20 Ten thousand, the price of low and medium models is very lethal, and it should be the main sales force. In addition, Lynk & Co 01 enjoys lifetime free data traffic, free warranty, and free roadside assistance services, which is also quite rare. Let's take a look at which model is the most cost-effective.

● Model introduction

Lynk & Co 01 is derived from the CMA (Compact Modular Architecture) architecture, which is a compact car construction platform led by Volvo and jointly developed by Geely Automobile. The body length of the Lynk & Co 01 is a standard figure in the same class, similar to the Volkswagen Tiguan, but it has a slightly superior wheelbase.

Lynk & Co 01 has 4 design styles, with different appearance details and interior color matching, which can better meet consumers' individual needs.

The Lynk & Co 01 is a type that is more beautiful than the real car. The appearance looks very special at first glance. It must be very eye-catching on the road. Compared with the modest design of most models on the road, it looks unique. Although the Lynk & Co 01 is an urban SUV, the approach angle and departure angle are not small, and the ground clearance (without load) is also 211mm, which has good passability. In addition, the data shows that the wading depth of the Lynk & Co 01 reaches 500mm, which is also a good result.

If the exterior looks very special at first glance, then the interior is even more unconventional. The center console design is obviously leaning toward the driver's side. At first, it feels uncomfortable, but as long as you sit in the driver's seat, everything It's relieved, the screen and buttons are very easy to use.

Regarding the riding space, the performance of Lynk & Co 01 is also worthy of recognition. The 173cm height experiencer has a punch in the front and rear head space, and two punches in the back leg space, which can be said to be more than enough.

In terms of storage space, the design is also very user-friendly. The first is that there is a storage compartment in front of the handle that is suitable for storing mobile phones, and there are two cup holders behind the handle. In addition, the front center armrest box and the storage space of the front door panel are also large enough, and the overall performance is satisfactory. In the back row, cup holders are provided on the center armrest and door panels on both sides, which can also meet the demand.

In the trunk, the performance of the Lynk & Co 01 is quite satisfactory, and it must be no problem to meet daily use. In addition, there is a hidden storage space under the luggage compartment partition, which is suitable for placing private items and has a very practical design.

The Lynk & Co 01, which was launched earlier, is equipped with a 2.0T engine. The four-wheel drive model is equipped with a 7-speed wet dual-clutch transmission. The two-wheel drive model is the third-generation 6AT transmission of Aisin. Later, 1.5T and manual transmission models will be launched.

Lynk & Co 01 uses a common suspension combination, the front MacPherson independent suspension and the rear multi-link independent suspension. The tuning style has the flavor of Volvo, but it will be softer, and relatively more comfortable, in line with the taste of the Chinese people.

● Vehicle configuration analysis

The price range of Lynk & Co 01 is 15.88-22.08 million. There are 5 regular models, plus a limited edition model. The models currently on the market are equipped with a 2.0T engine, corresponding to the two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicle allocation matching 6AT and 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

■ 01 Pure Lite
Official guide price: 158,800

Pure Lite is priced at 158,800, which is the most entry-level model in the car series, but the configuration is not low. The first is the 2.0T engine, which is very competitive for models of the same price. In terms of safety configuration, the ESP body stabilization system, side airbags and other configurations are standard, and there is also a one-key call for help service. In terms of comfort configuration, it comes standard with a full LCD instrument panel, a large-screen navigation system, dual-zone automatic constant temperature air conditioning, and smart keys, which are very luxurious for entry-level models . As for other aspects, halogen headlights, manually adjustable seats (fabric + leather), etc. are conventional routines, after all, the price is very real. Generally speaking, pure Lite has a good price/performance ratio. Of course, as the lowest equipped model, it is the only one in the whole series that does not have a panoramic sunroof.

Pure Lite is not equipped with a roof rack in terms of appearance. It is already equipped with relatively small 17-inch wheels, so the appearance will look a little more plain. Pure Lite has only white body color. In terms of interiors, all cars (except Yao Pro) have black interiors .

■ 01 type official guide price: 168,800

The model is the next low-end model, priced at 168,800, which is 10,000 more expensive than the pure Lite. It has a lot more configurations, and many of them are high in gold. In terms of appearance, a roof rack has been added, and the rim has been upgraded to 18 inches. In terms of active safety configuration, the addition of adaptive cruise (I can't imagine that the next low configuration is also equipped with ACC), active emergency braking system, tire pressure monitoring, head air curtain, etc., should be nothing at the same price. In terms of comfort, compared with the low-level pure Lite, it has made a qualitative leap. Upgraded leather seats (electric adjustment of the driver's seat), panoramic sunroof, leather steering wheel, automatic sensor wipers, etc., this second-lower configuration is very cost-effective, the most Recommended. The model also has a relatively short board, that is, it is still equipped with halogen headlights.

■ 01 Type Pro/01 Yao Pro
Official guide price: 178,800 / 182,800

The model Pro is 10,000 more expensive than the model, and there are many additional configurations, but most of them belong to the icing on the cake. The additional configuration mainly includes the upgrade of 19-inch wheels, the addition of the ACC function to follow the team (the vehicle can automatically resume after stopping), the active emergency brake system with pedestrian recognition, the DAC driver fatigue warning system, LED headlights, and more adjustment options Seats, electric trunk doors, Infinity speakers, etc. 10,000 yuan can buy so many configurations, it is definitely worth it, it depends on whether your budget is sufficient. Like the Model Pro, there are three body colors: white, black, and brown, but the rim styles and sizes are different.

The configuration of the Yao Pro is the same as that of the model Pro. The difference between the two cars is that the Yao Pro is the only model in the car series with a blue appearance, and the blue and white color-blocking interior is also unique. 4000 yuan is not too much, it depends on whether you particularly like this blue model.

■ 01 Jin Pro
Official guide price: 202,800

If not counted as a limited edition, the Jin Pro is the top model in the car series, priced at 202,800, which is 24,000 more expensive than the lower-level Pro, and the gap is still quite large. As the top model, the main function is the image spokesperson of the car series, so more advanced configurations have been added. First of all, it is equipped with a four-wheel drive system (with steep slope descent), and the matching gearbox is also changed to a 7-speed wet dual-clutch transmission. Driving mode selection, automatic parking, panoramic image, driver's seat ventilation/memory function, foot-sensing electric trunk door, etc. Compared with other models in the car series, Jin Pro is not the most cost-effective, but in the same level of models, the price is just over 200,000, and it is necessary to find a model with such a high level of configuration and a 2.0T four-wheel drive version. , Still rare. Jin Pro is available in red and white body colors.

■ Time limited edition official guide price: 220,800

The time limited edition configuration is the same as that of the top-equipped Jin Pro, but the exterior and interior details are different. In terms of appearance, the time limited edition retains the coral red skyline line from the A-pillar to the rear of the 01 concept car. It has a deep gray body color, mirror-polished wheels, a limited edition on the rear and leather seats. Unique identity.

The time limited edition is limited to 1001 cars and 200 cars per month. So far 201 cars have been sold. Although the time limited edition is 18,000 more expensive than the Jin Pro, the acceptance level seems to be quite high.

■ Recommended models

Although Type 01 is the second-lowest model in the car series, it is not at all low-end. It has 18-inch wheels, panoramic sunroof, ACC adaptive cruise, active emergency brake system, leather seat (electric driver seat adjustment), Leather steering wheel, automatic sensor wiper and other advanced configuration, there should be no one in the same price model, the price is very high, 5-star recommendation.

Type 01 Pro is only 10,000 more expensive than Type 01, but it adds a lot of configuration. Although it is an icing on the cake configuration, it is also very worthwhile. The additional configuration is equipped with LED headlights (this is very attractive), ACC adaptive cruise with team-following function, intelligent far and near beam control system, electric trunk cover, Infinity 10 speaker luxury audio, mobile phone wireless charging system, etc. The price of this model is about 200,000 yuan, which is very cost-effective, so it is recommended by 4 stars.

to sum up:

To be honest, the Lynk & Co 01 really impresses people by looking at the actual car. It is not too much to say that it is an entry-level luxury car. The excellent product strength and the down-to-earth price make it hard to be popular. In terms of configuration and price, the 01 model (168,800) is the most cost-effective model, which has a great impact on the joint venture brand compact SUV under 200,000. In addition, I will lay the groundwork for a foreshadowing. Later, a 1.5T (three-cylinder) model will be launched, matching 5MT and 6AT gearboxes. I believe the price will be more competitive and interested friends can pay attention to it.
