Luck and Prejudice: Buy Lifan X60

What, where and how are we looking?
What is good about the X60 is the lack of the need to look for cars with successful engines and gearboxes: there is one box and one motor. True, after the restyling of 2015, cars with variators appeared, but they cost thousands from five hundred. We assume that such we can not afford.

When someone says that Smily is a clone or a copy of Mini, this is at least not true. The car is really made with a big eye on the iconic minicar, but it is rather a “variation on the theme” than direct copying. Continue reading
