The 03 has a nose that's very similar to L&C's 01 crossover, which is defined by its small fender-top headlamps, broad, narrow grille opening and gaping lower fascia.

There's not much to see in here, aside from what appears to be the same 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system as on the 01 crossover SUV.

All Lynk & Co vehicles are expected to be offered in one spec, with no options other than color choice. Doing so should reduce build complexity, which curbs cost while aiding quality.
