There is a new "3" sedan in town. Although it may sound like a car that hails from Germany, it is actually the first small family saloon from Chinese car manufacturer, Qoros. The Qoros 3 will be making its world premiere in March's Geneva Motor Show.

Qoros was founded as a part of a joint venture between Chery Automobile and global holding company, Israel Corporation.

At launch, the 4.59m long saloon will be available with two 1.6-litres petrol engines - a naturally-aspirated unit and a turbocharged version. They produce 126bhp and 156bhp respectively. Both engines will come with a six-speed manual transmission as standard and an optional dual-clutch automatic transmission. The lower-powered engine propels the car from 0 to 100km/h in 11.0 seconds while the turbocharged lump does the same job in 9.0 seconds. Two turbocharged, direct-injected engines with 1.2-litres and 1.6-litres capacity are under development.

The Qoros 3 sedan will be joined by the Qoros 3 Estate Concept at the Geneva Motor Show. The Qoros 3 sedan will go on sale in the second half of the year.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
