Yesterday we showed you the first official pictures of the Qoros 3 Sedan, the Qoros 3 Estate Concept and the Qoros 3 Cross Hybrid Concept, which is actually the Qoros 3 hatchback. Today we have the first unofficial pics of both concept cars that will debut on the Geneva Motor Show in early March. Qoros is a brand of Chery-Quantum, a joint venture between Chery Auto of China and Quantum LLC of Israel.

Qoros 3 Estate Concept is the wagon variant of the sedan, it is designed for the European market where it will arrive sometime in 2014 together with the Qoros 3 Sedan. Qoros hasn’t said anything about the engine that powers this particular concept but since it is based on the Qoros 3 Sedan we can safely assume it will get the same engines: a 1.6 with 126hp and 155nm, and a 1.6 turbo with 156hp and 220nm, both mated to a six-speed manual or a 6-speed DCT. A three-cylinder 1.2 turbo with 130hp is under development as well.

This is the Qoros 3 Cross Hyrbid Concept, which basically previews the Qoros 3 Hatchback. The Qoros 3 Cross Hybrid Concept comes with a hybrid drive train that will be used in future road cars. The petrol engine is a three-cylinder 1.2 turbo with 130hp, mated to a 67hp electric motor. Total output is a very neat 197hp. The hybrid will be four-wheel drive.

Interior of the 3 Cross, exactly the same as in the 3 Sedan. Big screen very clear, but it sits a bit low in the center console. Sporty steering wheel very good.

Nothing cool here, designers likely had a boring-day when they drew the dials.

ESC can be switched off, a surprising feature in a family car.  Well, the kids will love it…

    Interior looks good quality. Exterior styling is always a bit subjective, personally I like it and think that there is both a strong “Qoros” design language, and a distinctive appearance.

    This is more than can be said for many Chinese automakers who have been active for years.

    Amazing how one new kid on the block can nail what takes other companies years to perfect (most still haven’t even come close yet).

    I think Qoros could be on to something special, especially if the underpinnings of the 3 are as flexible as they suggest.

    Very neat looking !! Other chinese carmakers can learn from this!

    This is truly exciting. Here in Europe it will probably be a success, and the rest of China’s car producers may learn from this.

    I can’t wait to see it, and try it! Even buy it perhaps.
