Qoros-suv-2

Chinese-Israeli auto manufacturer, Qoros, has a mystery new SUV in the works. Spotted testing in Europe, the prototype gives almost nothing away as it is heavily camouflaged, but what we can possibly gather is that the new SUV is probably based on the Qoros 3’s modular platform and would likely share the same drivetrain options as well.

Judging from the photos, the overall styling of the car seems to be in line with the current Qoros design language. The front of the car appear to feature head lights similar in style to the ones on the Qoros 3, even sharing the wide honeycomb front grille. The prototype also appears to feature a metal skid plate on its lower front end.

At the rear, the car features LED tail lights that are obviously inspired by the 3, albeit with a more bulbous look. Twin exhaust pipes at each end of the car remain, again taking another styling cue from the Qoros 3. The company currently employs ex-MINI designer Gert Hildebrand, who has been serving as Head of Design since 2011.

Qoros, a relatively new name in the auto industry, stunned everyone when the 3 received not only a five-star Euro NCAP rating but also held the highest score in that year. Since then, the new brand has expanded on its 3 lineup with the Qoros 3 Hatch – a car which was awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award.
