Safety

Criticisms

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 <ref name="chdaily">Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref> without modification.

GM China Group indicated the two vehicles "shared remarkably identical body structure, exterior design, interior design and key components"<ref name="chdaily"/> MotorAuthority.com<ref>Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref> 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.<ref name="iht">Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref>

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."<ref>Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref>
