GENEVA — New automotive brand Qoros will debut the compact Qoros 3 Sedan at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show.

The Qoros 3 Sedan is the automaker's first production model. It will be launched in China in the second half of the year, followed by European sales later in the year. No U.S. launch plans have been disclosed.

The Qoros 3 Sedan will launch with two 1.6-liter four-cylinder engines. The engines are linked to a standard six-speed manual transmission. Qoros said it is also developing a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine and a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with gasoline direct injection for the sedan.

All Qoros vehicles will get an infotainment system that replaces traditional switches and buttons.

The company is a joint venture partnership between China's Chery Automobile and Israel Corporation, a global industrial holding company.

Also on display will be the Qoros 3 Cross Hybrid Concept and the Qoros 3 Estate Concept. The Cross Hybrid Concept is equipped with a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine and an electric motor.

The Qoros wagon is said to be a look at "a future variant with a body style that is especially popular among European motorists," the automaker said in a statement.

Edmunds says: Newcomer Qoros aims to shake up the 2013 Geneva Auto Show with a growing lineup.
