New Qoros SUV is destined for China, but it's unknown whether it will come to the UK

These are the first official pictures of the new Qoros 5 SUV, which will make its debut at the Guangzhou auto show in China next month.

Qoros hasn't released any official information regarding the new SUV, but the new model will sit alongside the 3 hatchback and saloon and the 3 City SUV unveiled at last year's Guangzhou show.

Autocar understands that the new SUV will be powered by the same 154bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine that already appears elsewhere in the Qoros range. In the Qoros 3 City SUV, that engine can be coupled to either a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch automatic transmission and is capable of returning up to 42mpg. It's understood that the new Qoros won't offer all-wheel drive.

Future variants of the Qoros 5 could include plug-in hybrid technology, following the showcasing of the firm's 2 SUV PHEV concept at the Shanghai motor show earlier this year. The concept featured a small petrol engine matched to two electric motors.

Although it's known that Qoros has ambitions to break into the European market, no firm launch date has yet been set for the brand to reach the UK. The new SUV was first spotted testing in July of this year.
