With what only competitors journalists do not compare the appearance of the car "Lifan Solano"! The photo from the front as if done from the model of "Volkswagen", the outline of the body - with Toyota Corolla. The updated model with the index 630 is similar to the "Lexus". Comparisons are flattering, many car enthusiasts like the design. He is reserved, classical. Both the bumper and the body are painted in a single color, which adds solidity.

Inside Solano looks more modest. The instrument panel is simple in design and execution, without any frills. Transparent plastic, covering the instruments, flashes. The majority of controls are located conveniently. The shift lever is located on the left. High drivers may not be satisfied with the length of the longitudinal adjustment of the steering column.

The quality of the instrument panel assembly is far from the five-year-old models. There are almost no creaks, if small ones appear, then only in severe frosts. With warming, they disappear. The black panel is divided by a wide brown strip in half. The upper half of the panel is made of soft plastic, the lower half is made of solid plastic. The speedometer and tachometer are large, well readable. Between them - a blue information display.

The fulfilled license design guarantees durability of the power unit, absence of problems with repair, consumables, accessories. The absence of super technology developments in the design of Russian realities is a big plus. At least to check the oil level, the car owner does not need to go to the service center. Also, the motor is slightly more powerful, with a volume of 1.8 liters.

The gearbox from some car owners will require addiction. But after tens of kilometers of mileage, the skill of working with the established manual transmission is developed. But in the box the optimal ratio between the transmissions.

Chassis "Lifan Solano"

Test drive showed that the side rolls in a bunch of turns are small, for drift, drive, racing track the model clearly does not suit. But it is perfect for family trips, office use. The owners note very good quality springs, but the racks are considered a weak spot.

Suspension Lifan Solano: front "McPherson", on the rear axle - beam. On the move, the machine resists the road irregularities. Suspension is energy-intensive, almost does not break, except on a very large pit. However, at such settings, the car is managed slightly worse with sharp maneuvering at decent speeds. Marketers position the model as a replacement for solid brands, the target audience is middle-aged and aged owners. Since respected citizens are not solidly boyishly chasing a car, these suspension settings justify themselves completely.


On "Lifan Solano", in contrast to price competitors, ventilated disc brakes are installed in front, and rear discs are also installed at the rear. This combination hints at installing in the future more powerful engines. However, and the regular 1.6-liter accelerates the car quickly, without tension. Pleasant many whine turbine during the dispersal is not audible, as there is no specific pick-up - the philosophy of the car is different.


  • Some owners note that the company logo, decorative elements, number plate can be poorly fixed. Under them gets water, seeping through the holes under the hood, sometimes when washing they fall off. This is not a design problem, but someone has shlaturil during assembly. Easily corrected on its own.
  • Paint coating is desirable to apply thicker. When buying, it will not hurt to inspect the selected sample for scratches, unpainted areas (especially at the joints), check the optics.
  • Plastic thresholds are surprisingly mounted reliably. Neither dirt, nor moisture, nor dust under them seep. If you cut the sealing inserts entering the thresholds, the doors will be easier to close. However, dust will enter the slot.
  • According to reviews, in the thirty-degree frosts Lifan Solano is started without problems. The thickness of the body of metal within the reasonable: thinner branded cars, a little thicker than many domestic models.


Drivers, accustomed to the trip "listen" to the engine, will be satisfied with the insufficient noise isolation of the cabin. Lovers of silence will have to suffer or carry out appropriate tuning.

In "Solano", as in the best foreign cars, when the rear gear is turned on in the gearbox, the parking sensors automatically activate and the car radio switches off. Two parking sensors are sensitive, really help with parking.

For the driver is provided a regular seat heating. For a small surcharge, you can spend it for the passenger. Regular summer tires of good quality. The roadway holds tenaciously.

Given the low operating costs and maintenance costs, the acquisition of the model is more than justified. Especially commercial organizations, families with moderate income, in short, those who need only reach their destination. Moreover, the filling is quite modern, many nice options. Considering the inclusion of Lifan Solano in the newly launched recycling program, the purchase will be profitable. It is practical, easy to maintain, inexpensive to operate, with a proven engine and a rich car for such a price.


Among Chinese cars, "Lifan" looks decent. Classic design, good acceleration, good brakes, reliable licensed engine, an enviable practicality distinguish it among low-cost models from China. The new "Lifan Solano", although slightly more expensive, looks even better thanks to the charisma of the updated optics and the improvement of the technical characteristics.
