Default Volvo plans XC20 to rival Audi's Q2

Volvo plans XC20 to rival Audi's Q2-volvoxc20.jpg

Quote:
A Volvo XC20 small crossover is on the cards to fit beneath the upcoming XC40 and rival cars such as the Audi Q2
Quote:
Volvo already has the platform for a small premium SUV and is close to launching a suitable range of three-cylinder engines
Quote:
Sales of small SUVs are expected to exceed two million by 2018, according to forecaster LMC Automotive, having reached 1.4 million sales last year.

Most of these models are from mainstream volume manufacturers such as Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, and Suzuki. Audi’s recently launched Q2 is the only premium model in the segment, potentially indicating a major opportunity for Volvo.

This looks more hatch than their V40 does!!

But i don't think this is the kind of vehicle that can sway away the Q2 buyer,however "poser" the Q2 may be, its still similar to a Tiguan underneath has mostly 4 cylinder engines and looks more SUV than hatch.

Btw, if they would give proper 4wd and low range on suvs of this size, that would open up a whole new segment. Similar to say a Luxury short wheel base Pajero/vitara.
