They are so trendy indeed that we sometimes hesitate to post about Lynk & Co, as we are way less trendy than they are. But we usually get over it fairly quickly whenever we realize, again, that all of this trendiness is really just desperate PR not worth our worries.

Lynk & Co 02

This white wonder is the final production version of the Lynk & Co 03 sedan, and it looks almost identical to the 03 Concept. The entire front is very similar to the 01 SUV, but with a different lower-bumper section. The grille seems a tad to black to me, it needs some shine somewhere.
