An impressive, well equipped as well as also also spacious car yet ultimately lacks any real excitement The unveiling of Qoros at the Geneva motor show caused quite a stir. Based in China yet which has a multinational staff poached through some of Europe’s top manufacturers, the firm has big plans. So far the idea has continued to milk the PR gravy train with stories such as its car gaining the top score for 2013 inside Euro NCAP test. The question is usually, how does the 3 Saloon actually stack up?While cutting a smart look the saloon lacks anything distinctive to make the idea definitely stand out. Currently only on sale in China as well as also also Slovakia, the idea was designed to compete with the Volkswagen Jetta as well as also also Ford Focus while also bringing fresh premium features to the sector.Qoros’s three watchwords are design, safety as well as also also connectivity – as well as also also the brand is usually targeted at young metropolitan drivers. One of the first things you notice inside is usually how uncluttered the idea looks. Very much aimed at the iGeneration, the central dashboard is usually dominated by the touchscreen infotainment system. that will is usually controlled by one as well as also also two finger swipes as well as also also has four functional groups – each which has a further control screen off them. Navigation uses real time traffic information as well as also also can show points of interest such as restaurants as well as also also parking spaces, as well as also also you can send pre-programmed routes to the idea using a phone app.the idea is usually also connected to social media outlets such as Facebook, allowing you to ‘check in’ based on your location.  Build quality is usually not bad which has a decent use of premium materials. There is usually an impressive attention to detail with items such as the under passenger seat storage compartment as well as also also the fully adjustable rear headrests. inside back the idea can seat three adults in comfort thanks to one of the widest stances in its class, as well as also also is usually only 13mm narrower than a Ford Mondeo. Head room however is usually not great. The bonnet is usually supported by a gas strut yet the boot gets cheaper goose neck hinges as well as also also also suffers through flimsy feeling sides as well as also also floor. Currently fresh petrol, diesel, as well as also also hybrid powertrains are under development for the full European launch in 2016, yet there is usually a choice in China today between a 1.6-litre DVVT petrol in both naturally aspirated as well as also also turbocharged forms.Coupled to a dual-clutch automatic transmission the turbo proves responsive enough for normal driving. While adequate for China as well as also also returning not bad fuel economy the idea is usually lacking in power compared to the latest European offerings. We averaged an impressive 38mpg over the duration of our test. The Qoros 3 was designed which has a long wheelbase in mind. Partly to offer Chinese buyers the preferred leg space for adults inside rear, yet also to help soak up bumps as well as also also joins in road surfaces. With considerable attention being paid to noise as well as also also vibration levels, the idea offers a very smooth ride as well as also also quiet cabin environment. Steering is usually light by European standards yet the idea doesn’t suffer through the vagueness that will is usually common among Chinese cars. Driven on numerous different surfaces as well as also also a mixture of highway, country road as well as also also inner city routes there were no nasty surprises through the handling. Visibility on the passenger side, though, is usually lacking as well as also also currently there is usually no option of blind spot warning indicators – a short-sighted omission given the emphasis on safety inside design. Already the Qoros 3 is usually a strong car in its segment with an impressive list of kit. The upcoming fresh engines as well as also also Qoros’s policy of continual improvement mean that will by the time the idea features a full European launch the idea will be up there with the best. the idea could even prove to be a match for more premium rivals.Qoros 3 Saloon ElegancePrice £17,000 (est); Engine 4cyls, 1598cc, turbo, petrol; Power 154bhp; Torque 155lb ft;  0-62mph 9.7 secs; Top speed 135mph; Gearbox 6-spd dual-clutch automatic; Kerb weight 1410kg; Economy 44.1mpg; CO2 na
