Spy Shots: Chery-Quantum Qoros testing in China, will get 1.6 turbo
Published on May 9, 2012 by W.E. Ning
New spy shots of the Chery-Quantum Qoros sedan show work goes very fast and so it has to be because the Qoros is expected to debut at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show. Power will come from a Chery-sourced 1.6 turbo mated to a 6-speed manual or 6-speed DCT. Size is about 4.6 meter, wheelbase about 2.7 meter. Price is expected to start around 140.000 yuan.
Chery-Quantum is a joint venture between Chery Auto of China and Quantum LLC from Israel aimed at making luxurious sporty cars for the Chinese market and for export to Europe. Their brand-name is Qoros, the sedan on the spy shots is the first car, the car itself is yet nameless.
First good look at the C-pillar. Very sporty there, kinda 4-door coupe thing.
Sportiness again, low profile tires, racy wheels. This Qoros might be an interesting project, if the 1.6 has enough power to match the looks.
