Qoros – A High Potential

Qoros – A High Potential

The Qoros 3 Sedan has been launched on the Geneva Motor Show and presented it once again at the Shanghai Autoshow 2013, alongside the the Qoros 3 Estate Concept and the Qoros 3 Cross Hybrid Concept. The Qoros 3 sedan will be launched on the Chinese car market in the second half of this year, priced from 200,000 yuan.

Qoros is a brand of Chery-Quantum, a joint venture between Chery Auto of China and Quantum LLC of Israel.

Two engines: a 1.6 with 126hp and 155nm, and a 1.6 turbo with 156hp and 220nm, both mated to a six-speed manual or a 6-speed DCT. Qoros is also working on a three-cylinder 1.2 turbo with 130hp but that engine will be launched later. All three engines are based on existing Chery power plants. Size: 4615/1839/1445mm, wheelbase is 2690mm.

By far the best design from any Chinese automaker so far, and a brand that can seriously threaten the Europeans on their own land. May there be battle! More on the other Qoros cars soon.
