China2017 Shanghai Motor Show...

Lynk & Co shows first pics of Volvo-developed "03" sedan prototype
Sleek four-door with car-sharing tech shown ahead of Shanghai Motor Show

Cnet-RoadShow

by Chris Paukert - April 16, 2017

Lynk & Co, the new automaker with Chinese money and manufacturing and Volvo's engineering resources, has just previewed its 03 Concept, a design prototype that is the second vehicle the startup has shown in just five months.

Leaning heavily on the same styling language first established with the 01 Concept, the car is set to roll under the klieg lights at the Shanghai Motor Show this week, but for now, we've got these first images of the sedan. The car is expected to ride atop a similar chassis as the 01 crossover SUV, which means it likely employs a version of the Compact Modular Architecture shared with sister brand Volvo...

Lynk & Co sounds suspiciously like Lincoln...at least when spoken.

I was loving Audi styling for a while there, but now they've gone more angular and I'm liking it less. This one is better than something like the Q8 for me, but still not as good looking as the last-gen of styling that was smoother and had more curves.

not sure if I agree - due to wording^
I liked the Audi style BEFORE they went to a wavy shoulder-line = makes me seasick/queesy

now they MIGHT be fixing that with a straight shoulder-line and separated bumps over the wheels
so
I might like the side-views better
but
the fronts imho look like just turning the old ideas upto 11 ...or 33? ...or 666!
when what they need is NEW ideas

not sure how I feel about Them using WATERFALL grilles

That Mercedes concept is stunning.

=======================

Every sub-$50,000 car on the market will have to answer to the Ford from now on, no matter what badge it brings to the table.

That is hideous. Looks like a Kia Stinger GT got bloated and squished.

Also "Lynk&Co" give me a f*cking break.

I think the new RS5 is one of the nicest looking Audis ever.
