Qoros 3 City SUV Launched In Europe With Interesting Features But Only One Engine
|   Sunday, March 22, 2015
So far, time has proven that the Qoros brand is not just a word in the wind. It has become the first Chinese brand model with a 5-star EuroNCAP and the range of models developed explicitly for Europe increased and reached three members. The last of them was released in Europe at the Geneva Motor Show, three months after the emergence of the brand in a showroom in their home country: the Qoros 3 City SUV, a compact SUV, which enters the Qashqai/Tiguan segment.


The new model, developed by the brand from China takes design lines from the previously launched models 3 Sedan and 3 Hatch and leads them further into the crossover area.

The dimensions of the Qoros 3 City SUV are similar to the Qashqai, and the wheelbase - the detail that gives a first idea related to the interior space of the model - is 5 centimeters longer than that of the Japanese rival, the leader in its class in Europe. Overall, the allure of the Qoros model is of a compact SUV, but in both versions we are talking about an in-vogue bodywork style which still attracts customers in Europe.

The Qoros 3 City SUV is shod with 17-inch wheels as standard, but offers future clients the option of 18-inch wheels. Also, the exterior shades are five in number, all free: Crystal White, Starlight Black, Silver Diamond, Grey or Red Shimmer Sunrise.

Inside, the Qoros offers to the customers the option of choosing between four equipment levels (Active, Style, Style Plus and Excite). In standard version, the new SUV offers a start button, air conditioning and 17-inch wheels, four electric windows, electric mirrors with integrated turn signals, and an infotainment system named Qoros MMH (Bluetooth, wireless audio streaming).

Among the options available with increasing levels of equipment we have a six-speed automatic gearbox, dual-zone air conditioning , cruise control, reverse camera, heated seats, panoramic glass roof, high beam assistant, ambient light and 3G connection via Cloud (QorosQloud 2.0), which helps navigation and social networks access. The luggage compartment reaches 403 liters with a raised bench seat and a maximum of 1105 liters when it is folded.

An interesting element of the Qoros noted in the press release, joined by official images, is that the development team focused heavily on eliminating rolling vibration and noise, so the car acoustic package is the top notch.

If the package offered by Qoros sounds great so far, it seems the engine is the Achilles heel. That's because under the hood of the compact SUV Qoros is provided a single engine: a 1.6 petrol turbo rated at 156 hp and 210 Nm of torque, reached between 1750 rpm and 5000 rpm. The standard gearbox is a manual one, with six speeds on basic equipment, but all equipment at higher levels has an automatic transmission with six reports called QorosTroniq.

Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is achieved in 10.1 seconds with the manual transmission, and in 10.8 seconds with the automatic one. Qoros 3 City SUV consumes between 6.8 and 6.9 liters per 100 km, depending on selected gearbox.
