Qoros to unveil new production car at Geneva Motor Show; on sale in China later in 2014

Chinese car manufacturer Qoros will pull the wraps off an all-new production model for the Chinese market at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The model will be based on the current, modular Qoros 3 saloon platform although the maker claims it will come with a more premium feel.

Initial details are limited but a couple of teaser images have been released showing the new model will adopt a refined version of the Qoros 3's grille, along with twin exhaust pipes and a new rear light LED clusters.

Qoros states the new model is ‘designed to appeal to the young, modern, ‘always connected’ metropolitan customer,’ with features such as the QorosQloud infotainment system and new eight-inch touchscreen, fitted to help achieve this.

The versatile platform on which the Qoros 3 Sedan and this new model are based on will help the Chinese manufacturer stick to its promise of introducing a new model every six to 12 months.

Qoros has plans to introduce estate and crossover variants of the 3, which were previewed in concept form at the Geneva show in 2013. It's expected that the new model to be shown this year will be the production version of the estate concept.

Meanwhile, Qoros says its ultimate aim is to offer ‘a comprehensive range across of models in all major vehicle segments,’ indicating a larger SUV is also a possibility. The new model – yet to be named – will be available in China later this year.
