Qoros 3 2013-

World premiere for the Qoros 3 Sedan

Elegant design, class-leading interior space, generous specification, high safety standards

Qoros’ elegant sedan for the compact segment introduces a distinctive brand identity which will be applied across all future models. The Qoros 3 Sedan has an elegant profile thanks to its long wheelbase, short overhangs, a coupé-like silhouette and a roof line which flows smoothly into the strong rear quarters. At 4 ,615 mm long and 1,839 mm wide, the sedan is relatively large for the compact segment, and endows it with a powerful overall appearance and unusually generous interior space.

Two efficient four-cylinder 1.6-litre gasoline engines will be available at the launch of the Qoros 3 Sedan in China, both of which feature VVT (variable valve timing). The naturally-aspirated unit delivers an output of 93 kW (126 bhp) and 155 Nm maximum torque. The turbocharged version offers 115 kW (156 bhp) and 210 Nm maximum torque. Both engines are combined with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, with an optional six-speed dual clutch transmission available for both. A stop-start system will be available on selected models from launch.

With the support of AVL, Qoros is also developing a three-cylinder 1.2-litre turbocharged engine and an all-new four-cylinder 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, both with GDI (gasoline direct injection).

The advanced eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system is a standard feature of all Qoros 3 Sedan model variants.

I must admit, it looks rather nice!
I wonder how it drives.

Good name, good design. Let's hope the build quality isn't too bad...

It does indeed looki nice, even if the estate's proportions are a bit odd.

The quality and drive are sure important, but I also wonder how much will it cost.

Top Gear has reported 17.000£ for the base.

That's... very expensive.

It'd better be brilliant.

If you think about how Hyundai and Kia has gotten success, it isn't based on cheap prices.
Hyundai and Kia, has for many many years been some of the cheapest cars, and through that gotten a "cheap" reputation which isn't desirable for any car buyers.
By raising quality and prices + a good guarantee (5years for Kia and 7 for Hyundai) they have managed to increase their sales (in Denmark) and get rid of the "cheap" reputation, and instead got a "sensible" reputation.

Qoros might try to do the same thing from the beginning.

True but Hyundai and Kia have done so by designing cars aimed squarely at European buyers (hatchbacks, manuals, diesels) and while they have increased their prices they are still quite affordable. They also have the experience of decades to refine their cars to suit european tastes.

This costs almost the same as some entry-level D-segment saloons, and it's an unkwown quantity, and it lacks a diesel and it's a small saloon (which nobody in Europe actually likes), and Chery/chinese manufacturers aren't exactly to of the line so far.

That's why it has to be very good to make a significant impact in Europe

I agree.
However a Diesel will come, a manual too.
I believe their goal is to come in with a product which amazes everybody. But their first big obstacle will be the crash test.
