Lynk & Co 03 Sedan Starts Showing Some Skin, Rear End Looking Sporty

Geely-owned Lynk & Co is still hard at work testing its 03 Sedan prototypes, as the camouflage seems to be getting ever so slightly thinner.

The last time we saw an 03 Sedan prototype, it was undergoing cold weather tests, much like this one here. However, in this case, we can see that the car hasn’t been wrapped so thoroughly, and aside from showing a little paint job, the rear diffuser is fully visible, looking a lot more sporty than it did on the concept.

In fact, on the concept, the bottom of the rear fascia was drawn up in a somewhat elegant manner, boasting two small chrome tailpipes at each end of the bumper. In reality, the tailpipes are positioned a lot lower and are much thicker. So in a way, they’re more conservative while also looking more aggressive.

The rest of the car is about the same as it was when we last saw it, so we’ll have to wait until Lynk & Co takes off most, if not all the camouflage in order to assess just how different it looks compared to the concept.

With the interior, we expect to see a digital instrument cluster, a large touchscreen display, modern-day safety and connectivity technologies, including the automaker’s app-based sharing feature.

Powering the 03 Sedan should be a turbocharged three-cylinder 1.5-liter petrol unit, as well as a turbo 2.0-liter four-pot, with a plug-in hybrid option to arrive at a later date, based on the 1.5-liter engine. Apparently, no diesel engines will be available.

According to reports, we won’t see the 03 Sedan launching across global markets at least until the year 2020.

    I can’t help but the general shape, especially the greenhouse with the high trunk lid give me Saab vibes…

    There is something interesting about the design language of this company. If they intend to sell in the States I would suggest a name change so not confuse customers. Name sounds too close to the Lincoln Motor Company

    Looks like a modern day Geo.

    Looking at those spy shots of this dreadful looking saloon all I can say is just close the project and carry on with other business with the resources you have. We already have enough brands to choose from.
