Chinese-Israeli carmaker Qoros will soon add a new number to its fledgling range, teasing the new ‘2’ crossover this week.

The new compact SUV will be revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month, when it will join the larger ‘3’ models.

The Qoros 3 range currently consists of SUV, hatch and sedan models. A wagon body was also revealed in 2013, although this variant has yet to join the line-up.

The company also revealed a large premium sedan concept last year, the '9', but this concept is likewise yet to make its way to production.

Details for the new model are still to be revealed, although a small teaser image released today suggests we can expect the 2 to take its styling cues from the still-new 3 models.

The 3 made headlines in 2014 when it achieved the highest overall safety score with Euro NCAP, sister organisation to the local ANCAP crash safety group.

The same round of testing also saw Qoros 3 become the first Chinese car to achieve a 5-Star safety rating.

(Chinese carmaker Chery owns 50 percent of the Shanghai-headquartered Qoros, while holding company Israel Corporation owns the other 50 percent.)

Australian buyers should not expect to see the Qoros badge on local roads anytime soon, with only left-hand-drive production confirmed for now.

The carmaker has confirmed it will focus on left-hook European markets for the foreseeable future, with a wider launch not expected to occur until at least 2016.
