The iconic frameless doors, of course, are the most striking design feature, making the car look more fashionable, which is rarely seen in the same level sedans and quite competitive, and this can be called a big selling point. The luminous logo and horizontal light strip are highly recognizable and technological when lit up.
Regarding the interior, the new car uses the popular dual-screen design, with a 10-inch LCD and a 12-inch center control screen combined into one, which creates a wrap-around effect. In addition, W-HUD heads-up display system can project navigation, speed, driving assistance, and other information. Together with touch buttons and an electronic gear lever, the whole car looks relatively high-tech and trendy.
And the new car is equipped with IQ. Drive assistance system,12 ultrasonic radars, 3-millimeter wave radars, and two cameras, achieving L2 level driving assistance and automatic parking function.
The length, width, and height of Lamando L are 4784mm, 1831mm, and 1469mm, respectively, and the wheelbase is 2731mm. So the rear space is more spacious, realizing the combination of sliding back modeling and practicality.
About power, the Lamando L still carries the familiar 1.4T engine named EA211, which has a maximum power of 110kW and a peak torque of 250N·m, and the transmission system is still seven-speed dry dual-clutch gearbox.
