Qoros gets five star Europe entry

The Chinese-built Qoros 3 compact has become the first car from that country to achieve a 5-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests, writes Brian Byrne.

The car is the first from a brand developed by the Chinese Chery carmaker and an Israeli finance operation, and has been launched on Slovakia only so far.

It was first shown in hatchback and saloon formats at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The carmaker is now assessing interest from dealers across Europe.
