New Car: 2012 Chery QQ

The QQ maybe a common car in China, but its outing at the 2011 Guangzhou Auto Show was a rare event indeed, you see Chery never shows the QQ at major events. We’re not sure why Chery don’t like to show the QQ, perhaps due the QQ’s murky past as one of the first Chinese cloned cars where the QQ had a striking resemblance to the then Daewoo Matiz/Chevrolet Spark. However, for 2012 the QQ has had a slight makeover ahead of a new generation coming in 2013/14, which will leave the below car to soldier on for a few more years. The exterior has received a black ‘Triumph style‘ safety bumper around the front end but the rear end seems largely the same. The interior has had a workover and seems a lot less rough than before.

Engines for the new QQ will be the same as the old QQ, so a basic 800cc rising to a range topping 1.3L with a 1.0L in the middle.

Even though the QQ is now nearly a decade old, we think it will still continue to be Chery’s bread and butter car.
