At the 2013 Seoul Motor Show, Renault Samsung Motors unveils its new urban crossover vehicle QM3.
With QM3, the small crossover based on Renault Captur, Samsung Motors widens its product range and acquires a unique product for the Korean market. Following on the global success of SUVs and the market shift towards smaller cars, QM3 meets the demands of young consumers looking for alternatives to traditional B-segment vehicles.
“With this brand new concept, urban crossover, we are bringing customers an attractive, practical and innovative product. Renault Samsung QM3 combines in a single compact vehicle the best of three worlds: the sportiness of an SUV, the convenient comfort of an MPV and the driving pleasure of a hatchback,” said Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President, Design, Renault Group.
No word on engine options, but the Captur, its french brother, is available with the TCe 90, TCe 120 and dCi 90. Depending on which engine is selected, the crossover is equipped with a manual transmission or an EDC dual-clutch gearbox.
The launch of QM3 in Korea is planned for the second half of 2013.Source: Samsung
