Lifan X60 Automatic translate
The Lifan X60 is a compact SUV, first shown at the 2010 Beijing Motor Show (then simply known as the “Lifan SUV”). He was later reissued in April 2011 and several more times until 2018. As for the style, it draws inspiration from the third-generation Toyota RAV4, but it is usually not considered a copycat of Toyota because of the serious differences between the two cars regarding the chassis and size.
As of November 2013, there was only one option of the power unit with a 1.8 liter engine connected to 5 MT. Models with an automatic transmission went on sale in 2014, and the 2016 model is also available with a CVT.
The car’s interior is rather modest (the model belongs to the budget class), but it is precisely this drawback that can be corrected with the help of car covers. The model for our market is rare, but for example, the specialized supplier “World of Covers” offers a number of covers for Lifan x60 (see the link, there is delivery in the Russian Federation).
In 2012, the X60 was the 18th best-selling SUV in China, reaching 35,722 deliveries. Also, it was the most popular Lifan model in overseas markets; In the first five months of 2013, 9,120 copies were produced for export. The annual sales volume reached 56,647 in 2013 and 60,235 in 2014, in 2018 it exceeded the mark of 100,000 cars sold.
In the spring of 2018, the new 2018-2019 Lifan X60 compact crossover was introduced in Shanghai. Specifications 2018 Lifan X60 boasts a new engine with the abbreviation VVT (immediately comes to mind the Japanese development of VVT-i, which is used in new Toyota engines) and a volume of 1.8 liters. This VVT LFB479Q 1.8 engine was developed in collaboration with the British company RECARDO (the Rekardists themselves do not deny) and uses many parts of German companies such as Bosch and Valeo. Perhaps the Chinese engine is entering a new level of quality.
Disc brakes on all four wheels with ABS. Rear multi-link independent suspension, front McPherson. Power steering. The engine mounts well, no vibrations, shock and other inconveniences are transmitted to the body.
The Chinese do not plan to equip this crossover with all-wheel drive, since they believe that it is not competitive. By 4WD, the price will rise and it will no longer be considered budgetary.
As for the design of this compact crossover, it is similar to most similar cars:
The price of the car is about 12 500 dollars.
