Volvo XC30 PreviewThe trend of compact crossovers made to look to big, sporty and aggressive is gaining momentum all over the world. So much so, that not even luxury carmakers want to be left behind in this rapidly growing and hugely lucrative segment. The latest automaker to join the bandwagon of compact crossovers is the Swedish automaker Volvo who have reportedly, prioritised the development of an entry-level SUV as part of a broader future model strategy. This new model will be tagged as the Volvo XC30 in the global markets and will be based on larger XC60 SUV. Pegged to launch sometime by the end of 2017, the XC30 will rival the likes of Audi Q3, BMW X1 and the Mercedes Benz B-Class.
The baby Volvo will be based on the four wheel drive version of the existing C30s contemporary unitary platform that is internally being termed as the P1 structure. Dimensionally, the Volvo XC30 measures 4,350mm in length making is 280mm shorter that the current XC60. It is understood that Volvo might build two versions of the XC30 - a standard wheelbase model for the markets in Europe and an extended wheelbase model for the customers in India and China.
The Volvo XC30 will reportedly, be built at the Swedish carmaker’s newly acquired Geely Automotive in China and is expected to debut in the international markets sometime by the end of 2014 and is slated to make its commercial debut in the country in 2016. With the XC30, Volvo is hoping to attract the younger generation of buyers and is aiming to achieve the sort of profitability that the larger XC60 gathered in the global markets.
