Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Qoros 3 Sedan

This year’s Geneva motor show marks the global debut of the Qoros brand, a joint venture between China’s Chery Automobile and Israel’s Israel Corporation.

The first production model of the new brand is the Qoros 3 Sedan, a C-segment car that will launch in China in the second half of this year, with European sales to follow later in the year. The 3 sedan introduces Qoros’ brand identity which will be applied across all future models.

The car has a 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, which Qoros says it is reflected in its generous interior space.

At launch, the Qoros 3 Sedan will be available with two four-cylinder 1.6-litre gasoline engines, both featuring VVT (variable valve timing). The naturally-aspirated unit delivers an output of 93 kW (126 bhp) and 155 Nm maximum torque, while the turbocharged version offers 115 kW (156 bhp) and 210 Nm of torque.

Both engines are mated to 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 3 Sedan will be built in Changshu, China, with Qoros aiming to achieve top scores on both European and Chinese crash tests.
