Qoros Model Lineup Revealed For Geneva Motor Show

Chinese automaker Qoros has revealed their model lineup for the 83rd Geneva International Motor Show.

First in line is the Qoros 3 Saloon, which will go on sale in Europe end of this year. The vehicle is currently in pre-production development phase after two summers and two winters of extensive testing at key locations around the world.

The Qoros 3 Saloon will be available with two four-cylinder 1.6-litre petrol engines. The naturally-aspirated unit delivers 126 bhp and 155 Nm of torque, while the turbocharged version delivers 156 bhp and 210 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to six-speed manual transmission as standard, with an optional six-speed dual clutch transmission available for both. A stop-start system will also be available.

Qoros is also developing a new three-cylinder 1.2-litre turbocharged engine and an all-new four-cylinder 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, both with gasoline direct injection.

This new Chinese built and European designed saloon is 4,615 mm long, 1,839 mm wide and 1,445 mm high. Wheelbase is 2,690 mm.

In addition to showing the production ready 3 saloon, Qoros is also bringing two concept cars to the Geneva Motor Show, that are part of a future plan to launch a new model every six-to-eight months.

The Qoros 3 Cross Hybrid Concept showcases a future crossover, featuring a hybrid drive and all-wheel system. A three-cylinder 130bhp 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine is installed transversely at the front to drive the front wheels and a 50kW electric motor at the rear axle, which is powered by a LG Chem lithium-ion battery with a maximum capacity of 1.9 kilowatt-hours.

There is also a second electric motor – the Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) – mounted between the petrol engine and the transmission.

The second concept is an Estate version of the production ready saloon, featuring extended interior space.
