A new addition to the Qoros lineup has been made. It’s called the “5” and it is a midsized SUV.
Despite looking all “compact” an more like and MPV than an SUV, Qoros is still insisting that this should compete against similar models in the segment. The model in question is going to be positioned above the 3 City SUV and it had its premiere at the Milan Expo, over the weekend. The proper introduction of the vehicle will be made next month, during the Guangzhou Auto Show, in China.
Qoros says that the new “5” will be packing an all-wheel drive system, a first for the company which was founded just a few years ago. However, don’t be surprised if the model will not be getting one since the Research and Development department is still in its early stages. The automaker has a weird layout for its press releases and despite the new vehicle might seem to be fully unveiled, it’s not.
The new Qoros 5 stands at 4,587 mm in length, 1,878 mm in width and 1,676 mm in height. Under its hood it has a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine, producing 154 HP, connected to the 6-speed dual-clutch transmission. This is really all we’ve got on it for the moment so we will have to wait for its public debut to be made during the 2015 Guangzhou Auto Show, on November 20. Meanwhile, you can take a closer look at it through the small photo gallery posted below.
