Lifan X70 returns to Russia with new prices


It became known a month ago that the Chinese crossover Lifan X70 returns to the Russian market, when the Approval of vehicle type (AVT) was published in the Rosstandart database.

Recall that one of the most popular cars of the brand in Russia suffered from problems and the subsequent stoppage of the Circassian assembly enterprise Derways at the end of 2018. Now the X70 will be shipped from China.

The same crossovers that were produced earlier in Cherkessk will be brought to Russia - with the same engine (2 l, 136 hp), front-wheel drive and two transmissions to choose from - a 5-speed manual gearbox or CVT. The only difference that AUTOSTAT reported earlier is that the towing of a trailer (weighing 550 kg, without a brake system) is now allowed for a Chinese-made car with a "mechanic" transmission.

According to the Chinese Cars website, five trim levels are planned for the first time. The minimum (Standard MT) will cost 989,000 rubles. For comparison: before the crossover price was lower: in the last price list of cars of the Russian assembly, the Lifan X70 cost from 829 thousand to 1 million 90 thousand rubles.

As for other versions, now dealers will offer customers the Comfort MT version for 1,039,900 rubles, Luxury MT - 1,099,900 rubles. Similar configurations with a variator are estimated at 1,109,900 and 1,159,900 rubles, respectively.

Recall that according to the results of 9 months of 2019, Russian Lifan dealers sold 3472 vehicles, which is 69% lower than a year ago. Note that for several years Lifan has been a leader in sales of Chinese cars in Russia.

At the end of 2018, the brand managed to sell over 15 thousand cars in the Russian market. However, in 2019 the situation was changed: in the best months (April, March), sales did not exceed 500 units, and in August-September did not reach 300 units. Obviously, today the company has high hopes for the return of the X70 crossover, which can help it curb the fall. According to the portal, the date of "restart" of Lifan X70 will be announced in the coming days.
