Being one of the pioneering Chinese automakers to land on the Philippine shores, Chery Cars has been on an all-time high, proving that it has what it takes to square off against the giants in the country’s automotive industry, and it all starts with their sub-compact QQ3. Small, light-weight, fuel-efficient, and very affordable at p499,000, the QQ3 paves the Chinese automaker’s way for a spotlight into our Philippine car culture via an exterior styling that’s cute, up-beat, and very eye-friendly. Comparable to the Hyundai i10 and the Suzuki Celerio, the QQ3 boasts ample interior space as well, fitting a young novice driver out to hone his or her skills on the road. Decent amenities like standard CD/MP3/radio audio system, and air-conditioning help provide good moods for its four occupants.
Nowadays, affordability and efficiency is everything, and with its 998cc (1.0L) inline 3-Cylinder DOHC 12-Valve Multi-Point Fuel Injected petrol engine, it’s almost as worry-free in maintenance as a motorbike. A 5-Speed MT controls this sub-compact’s ample power-to-weight dimensions, and providing stability and comfort is a set of McPherson Strut front and Trail-Arm rear suspension, connected to a front disc/rear drum braking system.
