Qoros has revealed its second production model, the 3 Hatch, prior to a public debut scheduled for March at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
As you would imagine, the car's design is mostly taken from the 3 Sedan with the exception of the rear end which adopts a hatchback layout that unlike most designs coming from China seems to be original and quite appealing as well. They also did some minor tweaks to the front grille, bumper fog lights but overall it mimics the sedan's looks.
The interior has been carried over and will host an eight-inch touchscreen display offered as standard equipment. The cabin space has remained the same as the 3 Hatch will share its wheelbase, width and height with the 3 Sedan. The only physical changes are at the back where the shorter overhang has reduced the car's overall length by 177mm so the 3 Hatch measures 4438mm.
Power will come from the same 1.6-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine offered in naturally-aspirated and turbocharged versions with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or an automatic dual-clutch transmission.
It will share the production line with the 3 Sedan at Qoros' new assembly plant located in Changshu, China.
