Chinese-Israeli carmaker Qoros has revealed the second model in its launch range, in the form of the new Qoros 3 hatch.

Shown online this week ahead of its world premiere at March's Geneva Motor Show, the new hatch will join the Qoros 3 sedan that was recently declared Euro NCAP's best-scoring car in its 2013 safety tests.

The new 3 hatch shares the bulk of its styling and mechanical elements with the existing sedan, helping to fill out the company's range in the hugely competitive small-car market.

Likewise, a new 3 wagon and 3 Cross SUV are expected to debut in the coming year, based on the concepts that first appeared in early 2013.

Like the sedan, the Qoros 3 hatch will be powered by 93kW/155Nm naturally aspirated and 115kW/210Nm turbocharged 1.6 litre engines, with six-speed manual and dual-clutch automatic transmissions available for both.

Measuring 4438mm in length, the 3 hatch is nearly 90mm longer than Volkswagen's new Golf 7 hatch, and Qoros promises "unusually generous interior space for a vehicle in the compact segment".

Qoros says it has given the 3 hatch a handful of subtle styling tweaks to set it apart from the sedan, including a longer bottom front grille and tweaked bumper design, along with new round fog lights.

At the rear, the 3 hatch gets smaller rectangular tail-lights with a smoked look and LED internals.

Both models are largely identical in the interior - rear hatch-specific elements aside - although the 3 hatch gets new trim options that will likely appear in the sedan soon.

Standard features include an eight-inch multi-touch display in the cabin, which also adds QorosQloud connectivity features such as internet, remote vehicle monitoring, social networking functions and enhanced navigation options.

The new 3 hatch will be built alongside the sedan in thecompany's Changshu plant in China.

An Australian debut is under consideration, but has yet to be confirmed.
