Engine

The QQ is available with two gasoline-powered engines (both EURO III compliant):

  • 0.8 L SQR372 DOHC 12V I3 — 38 kW (51 hp) at 6,000 rpm, 70 N·m (52 lb·ft) at 3,500 rpm
  • 1.1 L DA465Q-1A2/D SOHC 16V I4 — 38.5 kW (52 hp) at 5,300 rpm, 83 N·m (61 lb·ft) at 3,000 rpm
  • 1.1 L SQR472F DOHC 16V I4 — 50 kW (67 hp) at 6,000 rpm, 90 N·m (66 lb·ft) at 3,500 rpm

Copyright controversy

The QQ became the center of an industrial copyright and intellectual rights controversy, as General Motors claimed the car was a copy of the Daewoo Matiz (which is marketed outside South Korea as the Chevrolet Spark). GM executives demonstrated the extent of the design duplication, noting for example that the doors of the QQ and those of the Spark are interchangeable [2] without modification.

GM China Group indicated the two vehicles "shared remarkably identical body structure, exterior design, interior design and key components"[2] MotorAuthority.com[3] and Car and Driver called the QQ a "carbon copy", while the International Herald Tribune, in a 2005 article, referred to it as a clone.[4]

The Detroit News reported that "the dispute reflects the confusion, risks and ambitions in China's new auto industry, where global carmakers are battling pugnacious upstarts for a piece of what may become the world's largest auto market."[5]

Safety

In winter

Though the Chery QQ and the Daewoo Matiz are superficially similar cars, their safety ratings differ dramatically. A Euro NCAP front offset crash test showed that the driver's injuries in the QQ are worse than those sustained in the Matiz. Upon impact, the QQ driver will most likely suffer severe (possibly fatal) head trauma, and trauma to the neck and chest areas. The first generation Daewoo Matiz achieved a three/two star driver/passenger EuroNCAP rating .[6]

Global markets

Iran

In Iran, the Daewoo Matiz had been assembled by local company called Kerman Khodro since 2000 in a joint venture with Daewoo. After being acquired by GM following its 2001 bankruptcy, Daewoo stopped supplying Complete knock down kits to Iran due to a ban imposed by GM. As a result, Kerman Khodro licensed the near identical Chery QQ as a replacement and put it into production at their subsidiary Modiran Vehicle Manufacturing Company.[7]

Philippines

There are three engine variants available in the Philippines: 0.8L Manual Transmission priced at Php 319,000, 0.8L Automatic Transmission priced at Php 373,000, and 1.1L Manual Transmission priced at Php 349,000 (price ranges roughly around US $7,000-7,500.)Template:Citation needed The QQ is one of cheapest cars available in the Philippine automobile market. QQs in red are commonly used by Coca-Cola Philippines as company cars, replacing the Hyundai Getz. In mid-2009, the car was renamed QQ3 due to the introduction of the QQ6 in the country.
