Verdict on Chinese hatch that’s coming to Europe to take on Golf and Focus

Chinese car companies haven’t made much headway in Western markets, but start-up brand Qoros has a better chance than most. Targeting the largest global segments, its first three cars are a small saloon, small SUV and the Ford Focus-rivalling family hatch we’ve driven here. Although it’s currently on sale in Slovakia, Qoros is waiting until it has a bigger range for the full European launch – likely to be in 2016.

Externally the hatchback is more attractive than the boring saloon, but still doesn’t really stand out. Changes include a slightly redesigned nose with new lower grille incorporating sportier elliptical foglights, plus wheels on all models are an inch larger than on the four-door and the alloys are different. Equipment is also more generous than on the saloon, with the top-spec Elegance getting xenon headlights.
