  1. I though the Qoros 3 looked similar to a volkswagen, but side on it looks like VW copied Qoros, even the wheels. This aint no mini-CC. Boot goes out too far in my opinion, it looks like a cross between normal passat and Jetta!

  2. Hey Tycho,

    The Chinese car news sites are spreading a bit of misinformation. The launch engines will be the 1.4T (150hp) and 1.8T (180hp, new engine from Golf 7/ Passat B8 in Europe).

    The 2.0T will come later with the GLI version.
