The Chery QQ3, South Africa’s most affordable new car at R84 900, is now even better value with a number of upgrades and improvements to the standard specification.

The QQ3 was launched in SA, together with the Chery brand, in 2008.

According to Chery there are a number of changes to the latest QQ3, however many of the improvements are “under the skin”. Other improvements are a new-look steering wheel, gear lever and centre console and new seat trim, while a radio/CD audio system is now standard on the TE model.

Hub caps are fitted to the 0,8 TE models, which previously had only silver-painted steel wheel rims, while the 0,8 TX derivative has alloy rims and remote central locking. Air conditioning is optional on the TE and standard on the TX, and adds R5 000 to the price of the TE, while the TX is priced at R94 900.

These models are powered by a 0,8-litre three-cylinder engine which produces 38 kW of power and 70 Nm of torque, while the claimed fuel consumption in a combined cycle is 6,8 litres/100 km.

For those buyers wanting more power and a higher specification there’s a QQ3 TXE model available with a 1,1-litre four-cylinder engine developing 50 kW of power and 90 Nm of torque. Its claimed average fuel consumption is 5,7 litres/100 km.

The list of standard equipment for this derivative includes air conditioning, an AM/FM audio system with a CD player, USB port and four speakers, electric windows, electric mirrors and a manually-operated sunroof. ABS, EBD and dual front airbags are also standard. Pricing is R103 900.

All models are backed by a three-year/100 000-km warranty.
