The Lynk & Co 06, a compact crossover, is the fifth model of the brand.

There is no error in the figures, because one previously planned model is delayed.

The Lynk & Co brand was launched in 2016 by Geely with the assistance of Volvo Cars. The first two projects —the Lynk & Co 01 and Lynk & Co 02 — were shown during the new brand’s presentation. The Lynk & Co 03 sedan and the Lynk & Co 05 SUV debuted in 2018 and 2019. The fourth model was supposed to be the Lynk & Co 04 hatchback announced in 2018, but it is not ready yet.

Instead, the company presented a new SUV — the Lynk & Co 06, which became the most compact model in the line-up. Its overall length and wheelbase are only 4,340 mm and 2,640 mm, respectively. The SUV is based on Geely's compact BMA platform first used for the model of the new brand.

The design of the new car is made in the brand's corporate style, but there are also unique solutions. In particular, the Lynk & Co 06 has got a new radiator grille with large cells and bifurcated side sections for taillights. The interior is also designed in a new style aimed at a young audience. There is a digital dashboard, a 10.25-inch infotainment display, a non-fixed transmission control stick and an electric parking brake.

The engine comes with a 7-speed preselector gearbox and a FWD system. A rechargeable hybrid with the same internal combustion engine supplemented by an 81-hp electric motor will be released later. A total power output will be 190 hp.
