The sedan has a more conventional style, with rather standard DLO graphic, a sculptural yet less angular surface treatment and chromed accents.

The dimensions of the sedan concept are 4,430 mm in length, 1,725 mm in width, 1,475 mm in height and 2,550 mm of wheelbase.

Among the common design elements are the panoramic roofs – which are characterized by two slight domes, the minimal rearview cameras and the polygonal pattern adopted for the lower front grille.

The word Qin in Mandarin Chinese means dear or intimate and represents the wish for these models to become cherished by many.

According to the first information, both models are expected to reach production in 2013, going in sale in China first, and in other countries at later stages.
