This is the brand new Qoros 3 Estate, it will officially debut in March on the Geneva Motor Show but we got it a bit earlier. One factory fresh example was spied in Germany on a construction site for a photo shoot. The Qoros 3 Estate is the second Qoros branded car after the Qoros 3 Sedan that was launched on the China car market in November. Note German license plate.
The Qoros 3 Estate will be powered by the same petrol engines at the Qoros 3 Sedan: a 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 very good looking car. Wagons however are not very popular in China, except with 8 cylinders and more than 500hp. The Qoros 3 Estate is mainly developed for export and will be launched on major European markets in 2015, alongside the sedan, hatchback and cross.
German license plate replaced by Qoros plate, likely for the photos for China. The Qoros 3 Estate will have its China-debut on the Beijing Auto Show in April and will be launched on the China car market in the second half of the year. Price will start around 130.000 yuan.
