Shanghai (china), 24. January 2014 – the qoros 3 is the first car from china to be designed with europe in mind, which earned it gobes of attention at the recent geneva motor show. The second surprise was its good performance in euroncap as the safest car in its class in europe. Its original appearance is that of a notchback sedan, but in this country funfturer in the style of the vw golf are more popular. An opportunity for the qoros 3 hatchback, which will be presented at the geneva motor show in early march 2014.

The funfturer is unmistakably based on the sedan. Both models share the same wheelbase, width and height, although at 4.44 meters the funfturer is around 18 centimeters shorter than the sedan. There are also slight optical changes to the front end. The result looks harmonious and in any case more interesting than the sedan. Qoros offers 1.6-liter engines in naturally aspirated and turbocharged versions, mated to either a six-speed manual or dual-clutch transmission.

Chic, safe and permanently connected

Every qoros 3 funfturer is to get an eight-inch touchscreen in the center console as standard equipment. This so-called mmh system is controlled similarly to a smartphone with finger movements. The higher equipment is available via "qoros cloud" for social networks, vehicle monitoring and advanced navigation functions, among other things. At the same time, various apps will be able to be transferred to the car. As far as the market launch in western europe is concerned, qoros is keeping a low profile. So far speculation has been for 2015.
