Qoros 3 Hatch revealed ahead of Geneva Motor Show debut

Last year at the Geneva Motor Show, the Chinese Qoros unveiled their first production car, the Qoros 3 saloon.

Now a year later they are back and have released first pictures and details of its second production model, the Qoros 3 Hatch, ahead of its public debut in March at the 84th Geneva International Motor Show.

The Qoros 3 Hatch is very similar to the Qoros 3 saloon with minor updates to the front grille, front bumper, fog lights, with the biggest change at the rear, which adopts a hatchback design, featuring new C-pillars, roof, rear side panels and tailgate.

The interior is familiar also with a clean design and new upholstery colour combinations and materials, along with standard eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system called Qoros MMH, which is operated via smartphone-type multi-gesture finger swipe inputs for minimal driver distraction.

The 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated and turbocharged engines and six-speed manual and dual-clutch automatic transmissions also carry over from the saloon.

The Qoros 3 Hatch together with the saloon will be manufactured in the brand’s all-new assembly plant in Changshu, China.

Unlike other Chinese automakers, Qoros should be taken seriously. Their cars look good, the interior is clean and well equipped, and lets not forget the Qoros 3 scored maximum five stars in Euro NCAP crash tests last year.
