Qoros GQ3Mon, 07 Jan 2013
The Qoros GQ3 has been revealed ahead of its Geneva show debut in March.
The GQ3, a C-segment saloon set to rival the Skoda Octavia, was designed by Gert Hildebrand and his design teams in Shanghai and Munich.
The front face features wide headlights that extend into the sides framing a broad grille, a template that will be continued on future Qoros models. Horizontal LED bars feature at the upper edge of the headlamps and in the rear light clusters. A horizontal air intake stretches the width of the car, sitting underneath the inset fog lamps.
A feature line stretches from the headlamps back to the rear lamps while a matt aluminum strip features above each side sill, designed to emphasize the car's width. At 1,839mm the GQ3 is one of the widest cars in its class.
Inside, the center console is dominated by an eight-inch touchscreen that manages the infotainment system, ‘Cloud' connectivity and in-car networking functions.
The Qoros GQ3 goes on sale in China in the second half of 2013, with the first cars arriving in Europe later in the year.
