Budget "Chinese" is more suitable for trips around the city, although it is a fellow Toyota RAV4.
Autoexpert Emil Azor revealed the features of the Chinese "SUV" worth 400,000 rubles. We are talking about Lifan X60, borrowed the platform and suspension from the "Rav4". Because of this, the car has excellent handling.
In terms of design, this is a completely original model with a hexagonal grille, large openings under the "fog" and brutal rear. The crossover received a 1.8-liter 128-horsepower engine and a 5-range manual transmission, traction is transmitted exclusively to the front wheels.
The blogger praised the work of the gearbox, and also noted that the “Chinese” engine had a good reputation. However, the car often breaks down the fan bearings, fails the catalysts or breaks the hose of the hydraulic booster.
Fuel consumption at the Lifan X60 in the city is about 10.0-11.0 liters, and about 8.0 liters on the highway. The trunk of the crossover can not be called large for this class, it holds 405 liters of cargo. At the same time, there are no niches, hooks or organisines in the luggage compartment, but there is a full-size "spare wheel".
It is very comfortable to sit on the front seats, there is enough space for rear row passengers. Also, the blogger believes that the Lifan X60 interior looks great thanks to good finishing materials.
