That means they did better than
companies like Volvo and plenty of other established European marques, many of whom are traditionally renowned for their safety record over a long period of time. (see comments for explanation on deletion)
That’s pretty impressive.
The car involved was the Qoros 3, which is now on sale in China and has recently entered its first European market, in Slovakia.
Qoros will be showing a new vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with pundits saying it’s likely be either a 3 Hatch to complement the sedan or a production version of the 3 wagon shown in concept form last year. My money’s on the hatch.
Photos of the wagon have already circulated from when it was tested in Germany and the rear doesn’t match the teaser photos sent out by Qoros last week.
Here’s the teaser, top, and the wagon seen in German testing, below.
Qoros is off to a good start. I don’t know if their product is for me but their launch has shown – by far – the best Chinese brand new product to be offered in Western markets. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when they expand their push into other European countries.
