Top-level changes for both Volkswagen and Nissan are announced, while Qoros opens a new flagship dealer in Shanghai
20 December 2013

Chinese car maker Qoros has opened its first dedicated dealership. The purpose-built, 4000-square-metre site in Shanghai is the first showroom for the brand, and is set to be just one of the 100 outlets that are planned to open by the end of next year.

Volkswagen Group UK has appointed a new managing director. Paul Willis starts from 1 February 2014, taking over from Paul Willcox. Willis has worked for various VW departments since 2000, including heading up the 'passenger cars' department and as chief operating officer for Skoda China.

Meanwhile, Paul Willcox returns to Nissan as its European chairman. Willcox joined Nissan GB in 1992, and in 2011 he took up the position of senior vice president in sales and marketing for Nissan Europe, but left this September to go to VW.

Driven this week

  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive

  • Hyundai Kona
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment
  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
