Beijing Auto Show Live: Lifan SUV
Published on April 24, 2010 by Tycho de Feijter
Lifan Motor makes small hatchbacks and medium sedans. But in China, suv’s still make the money. So Lifan is in with this Lifan SUV. It doesn’t have a real name. Likely Lifan thought: “the simpler the better”. Why don’t they then call their sedans ‘sedan’? Things off course get confusing for customers if you sell more than one sort of the same car. Another Lifan suv might therefore be called ‘SUV 2″.
Size is 4550×1705×1495, wheelbase is 2600. The SUV comes with two engines, a 1.6 and a 1.8. 1.6 has 78kw and 137nm, 1.8 has 100kw and 172nm. Manual, auto, or CVT for the 1.8. Prices will start around 100.000 rmb.
