Volvo has pulled up its socks and started work on the BMW X1 and Audi Q3 competitor in India. Volvo is developing a mini SUV based on Volvo C30 hatchback. The mini SUV XC30 will be shorter by about quarter of meter compared to the Volvo XC60 SUV which has been launched sometime back in India at about Rs. 40 Lakhs ex-showroom price. The price point of X1 has created a gap between the price brackets of BMW and its competitors in India. To stay ahead in the game and sell more of its units, its very important for the competitors to have some options in the similar price range as BMW X1.
Volvo C30 hatchback itself has stunning styling, we hope that the crossover or mini SUV based it, the XC30 will also look as pleasing as the C30. The engine and other details are not available at this stage, we will keep an eye on it and will bring the details soon.
