Crossover Lifan X70 — test drive SP

A new Chinese crossover Lifan X60 will change.

World on a string

Okay body with a pretty face reminiscent of the cars of Hyundai and Haval. Crossover, coming in the stead of model X60, quite harmonious. Even completely “empty” the fifth door does not destroy it.

After the premiere was followed by a test drive. However, all machines without numbers, so on public roads is a no — no. Limited to a closed dirt road — better than nothing.

The steering wheel is adjustable only for tilt, but fit it does not spoil.The steering wheel is adjustable only for tilt, but fit it does not spoil.

Devices are remembered by the tick marks of different lengths. A large colour display, the happy abundance of information.Devices are remembered by the tick marks of different lengths. A large colour display, the happy abundance of information.

With chassis from Lifanov no problems there, but for the ergonomics, we regularly gave them to the nuts. Sit behind the wheel… Wow! The seat is contoured as human beings. Is high, but allows the lifter to regulate it. Lower the armchair and hear a click, after which the pillow is slightly off angle. Rise up and sink again — the same story. It turned out that the pillow rests on the Central tunnel. And it’s not a defect in a specific car — on the other the same story. Well, how so? A ridiculous miscalculation on the background of good ergonomics.

Rear space enough in all directions. Another would be the upholstery fabric, but the Chinese have a pathological love for “the skin of a young leatherette”.

I just got out of the car, he heard profane language colleagues: he opened the trunk and firmly slammed his head on the castle. The fifth door opens high, and the metal body of the castle is 180 cm from the ground — high people “saditsja” in his head is easier.

The front seats are well contoured. Comfortable backrest, pillow optimal length. But in the bottom position it rests on the Central tunnel and warp.The front seats are well contoured. Comfortable backrest, pillow optimal length. But in the bottom position it rests on the Central tunnel and warp.

The last tower

According to the technique X70 close to the predecessor, this latest Lifan created on the old chassis. All subsequent must be based on a new modular platform.

The tailgate will only rise a 180 cm — tall people could injure his head on the protruding lock.The tailgate will only rise a 180 cm — tall people could injure his head on the protruding lock.

The two-liter aspirated (other motors not provided) is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT. All-wheel drive no. The claimed ground clearance — 196 mm. I climbed under there with a tape measure — measured 194 mm. not Bad, but the regular protection of the power unit there — you can kiss the oil pan.

I took a car with a CVT — so in our environment is important. Let the engine button, translate the selector in D and… between pressing the gas and start driving is a little eternity. Like transmission rubber — and only perejival her, Lifan accelerates. Factory data say that the first hundred X70 gets 14.3 seconds. I agree. With a manual transmission — in 13.8 seconds. From a 140‑HP car weighing less than a ton and a half waiting for more.

Short dirt track is not the best place to assess controllability, and energy suspension you can check out. It is sufficient. Lifan is not plagued by the buildup of the shear waves, suspension, breaks are not good pits and good filters the rocky area. But each stroke somehow accompanied by extraneous sounds. Renault Kaptur and Hyundai Creta digest such a road in silence, without compromising the reserves of energy and strength.

In curves with small radius, like in Parking lots, annoying excessive force on the steering wheel — especially in combination with “long” by modern standards rail (full three turns the steering wheel). However, the vitality and excitement of “Chinese” nobody is waiting for. We have nice prices, combined with the Royal — and the best Imperial equipment!

A small step

Lifan X70 stepped forward compared with the predecessor, but to the Korean and European compact crossovers still far. It will appear in the spring.

Prices are expected to hold at the level of “shestidesyatniki”, and it is about 900 thousand rubles for a car with a CVT in a decent trim levels — cheaper “Koreans”. For other buyers is a powerful argument. But for many?

Van M7 plan to bring to the Russian market. Given that the original S‑MAX we have not expected, Lifan is a vacant niche, and then the M7 may repeat the fate of “Chinese” Great Wall Hover we also became more popular than the “original” SUV Isuzu Axiom.
