A sporty one in gray with a gray roof and orange detailing. Orange wheels are very nice.
The 02 is the second model of Geely’s Lynk & Co brand. It is a bit lower and shorter than the Lynk & Co 01 SUV, but not much. Ride height is a little lower too. In China, it will compete with cars like the Mazda CX-4 and the Volkswagen T-Roc.
The Lynk & Co 02 is based on the same Volvo CMA platform as the 01. Engines: 1.5 liter turbocharged 3-pot in two flavors: 156 and 179 hp, and a 2.0 liter turbocharged four with 189 hp. Gearbox is a seven-speed DCT. The output of the 2.0 turbo seems very low. It has only 10 horses more than the 1.5 turbo, which has a cylinder less. An electric and a hybrid will be added to the lineup later, but when exactly is still unclear.
Size 02: 4448/1890/1528, and wheelbase is 2702.
Size 01: 4512/1857/1673, and wheelbase is 2734.

It is not entirely sure yet if the production version of the 02 will be on the Beijing Auto Show later this month. Probably not. Lynk & Co has a habit of launching their new cars at separate events, and the 02 isn’t expected on the market before Q4. So in Beijing we will likely see the same pre-production show cars as in Amsterdam.
Roof rails are shiny, the lights are rear, and there is a shiny bar in the bumper. All good, but I don’t really like the way the pipes are totally not integrated in the rest of the rear; the just seem to hang about under the bumper.
Neat Lynk & Co badge above the license plate holder.
Not bad in red. A little camouflage is all it needs to shed.
