F you#8217;re not with Chery, and many be, it is one of the latest automotive offerings the Orient. Chery is China#8217;s domestic auto brand via the McCarthy group, is about to its presence felt on African too. The brand was launched a few ago with three models the QQ, Tiggo SUV, and the J5 medium saloon #8211; but it is the subject of our the tiny QQ hatchback, which be of most interest to the car buying

#8220;South Africa#8217;s cheapest is an enviable moniker to have, for a newcomer, and in a market that is as sensitive as ours, it can be a great point, too. Chery#8217;s QQ 0,8 now that title. At R59 900 for the base TE on test, and R5 000 more for its higher-specced TX the two models are the cheapest cars in SA.

If you think that you have the QQ before, you may have #8211; but not It bears an uncanny resemblance to it) the Daewoo Matiz/Chevy Spark. QQ has the centre of a controversy involving the two companies, and General Motors has Chery for the infringement of intellectual

The Chinese naturally feel they have done wrong, but GM engineers supposedly fitted the doors from a QQ onto a Matiz with modification. Whatever the case, the QQ a strong sense of déjà vu.

It a shade over 3,5 metres and just under 1,5 metres so it is diminutive in stature. With headlamps and a #8220;smiling#8221; visage, it almost toy-like, as if you could it up and go vroom-vroom across the lounge with it.

Interestingly, the QQ has one of the best finishes that we have on a test car in quite some We suspect that it may have to do with China#8217;s lax environmental and that Chery is using and/or paints that are no employed by other manufacturers.

Those meagre exterior are not evident inside, where the QQ to have a fair deal of to accommodate passengers. Rear though, does come at the of luggage volume. The cargo took just 156 dm3 of our standardised ISO blocks, with 736 dm3 available the split rear seats flat.

As expected of SA#8217;s car, the interior is shorn of that isn#8217;t vitally to the driving process. Material is decent considering the price, there are a few rough edges as exposed metal body and some areas that really use plastic covers. materials used on all surfaces, bar the hangdown, gearlever and instrument lift the ambience.

On the subject of the cluster, the dials are clear and laid out. Smaller for engine temp, fuel and engine speed flank the There are no extraneous buttons or and all controls are easy enough to such as the rotary ventilation and er#8230; that#8217;s it, actually.

There isn#8217;t even a Only the headlamp activation is oddly located: instead of placed at the end of a steering column-mounted the switch is on the right of the facia.

the stalk does incorporate the and rear foglamps switch. the QQ has no rear demister, though.

In base model we didn#8217;t much in terms of seating and were proven correct. of the front chairs is not thick in fact, it#8217;s so thin you can the springs beneath. The cushion is too short, and the seatback too narrow for an frame. All in all, it#8217;s not unless you#8217;re below in stature.

Setting off for the first in the Chery proved to be a surprising An in-line three-cylinder engine is so the soundtrack is that familiar, woofle, think half a (bet you didn#8217;t think see that name in this flat-six, or Yaris T1. Displacing a 812 cm3, it is not surprising that the develops just 38 kW and 70 N.m of torque, peaks arriving at 6 000 and 3 500 r/min

Despite short gearing and a low mass of 900 kg, the QQ posted disappointing on our test strip. The benchmark km/h sprint took seconds, and the top speed was near on claim at 138 km/h. Have a at the adjacent data panel and you note the overtaking times are too.

Drive a QQ and any forays the fast lane had better be events, with liberal use of the On the open road and through the grind, the engine was not unkeen to though. Even in the higher of the rev-range it was still unfazed.

The and four valves per cylinder are strong contributing factors to ability. What we did notice, was an inconsistent flat spot, or ECU Every so often the engine did not respond to a throttle input, and before clearing its mind and off.

It#8217;s a trait that us every time we had to cross a busy junction or take a gap in the We sincerely hope that malady isn#8217;t prevalent all QQ models.

Taking gaps in the or indeed any movements that steering input, should be with in an extremely circumspect We found that the handling is not near what it should be for a car at novices, youngsters and firsttime car Tackle any corner at speeds above normal pace and the feels scary, even for our team of testers.

If not almost to the point of tipping over, is the very real prospect of into a corner as the turning is so sharp. Don#8217;t sneeze too or you may just change lanes With such an imprecise one is always left wondering the front wheels are doing and they#8217;re pointing.

Perhaps with the small it does not require the (over) steering.

The QQ#8217;s upright narrow track and skinny do not help in the handling stakes On the ride comfort front, the QQ manage a decent job of providing a platform while traversing and other road irregularities.

But the sedate straightline performance and instability through the corners, it is the performance that is the most aspect. With discs up and drums on the rear axle, the QQ poorly in our stopping routine. It a best time of 4,39 and averaged 4,88 over ten
